How to make a FaceTime call on your Apple Watch

The primitive reason for the introduction of Apple Watch was to let people use fitness and health apps on it. Now, people are mainly using it to access different apps and notifications. The apps that you can easily access through Apple Watch also includes FaceTime. Not having a camera in your Apple Watch shouldn’t stop you from using FaceTime app on it, right? You can make FaceTime audio calls from the Apple Watch quite easily.

FaceTime is indeed an incredible, but somewhat an underused feature by Apple. The sound quality is impeccable and as good as a normal phone call. The best thing is that it is not limited to the iPhone or iPad. You can use FaceTime Audio Call on Apple Watch through Siri or the Phone app. Here is how you will be able to do that.

Through Siri:

Siri comes handy when you want to make calls while driving. All you need to have is Apple Watch with cellular, and the rest of the steps are mentioned below:

1. You can enable Siri by Saying “Hey Siri,” Press-Holding the Digital Crown, or by tapping on the Siri widget on the Siri watch face.

2. Next, you will need to say FaceTime followed by the name of the person you want to FaceTime with. Doing this will connect you the person via the FaceTime app.

3. When you are done talking, simply tap the disconnect icon on the watch to end the call. It is a Red Phone icon you need to tap.

2. Tap on the option Contacts.

3. Scroll down, locate the contact you want to FaceTime and tap on it.
