‘Video Voicemail’ in FaceTime
One of the glaring limitations of calling someone using FaceTime is that there’s no way to leave a message if they don’t answer. A FaceTime call will just ring and ring and ring until you give up.
That’s going to change in iOS 17, though. Now, if you don’t answer a FaceTime call, the caller will be able to record a short video or audio message for you. Video messages can use all the same features as a FaceTime call, including Portrait mode and Studio Light and you’ll even be able to play received messages on an Apple Watch.
