16 Spice up FaceTime with New Fun Features
FaceTime is one of the best ways to participate in video calls with family and friends. Apple will be adding group FaceTime to iOS 12 in a future update—iOS 12.1—which will also contain over 70 new emoji.
While group calling may not be available yet, there are still plenty of new FaceTime features for you to try. You can apply filters for a dramatic effect, place stickers, add text, and more. When you add a sticker or other object it will even stay where you put it. For example, add a sticker to your forehead and it will stay on your forehead.
But perhaps the most fun new FaceTime feature has to do with Animoji. In iOS 12 Apple introduced four new Animoji and a new Memoji feature that lets users create Animoji that looks like them—or anyone else. Now you can use those Animoji and Memoji to replace your head in your FaceTime calls. So if you’re a bit camera shy, want to impersonate a friend, or feel like being a unicorn, now you can.
