The days when you needed an iPhone, iPad or Mac to FaceTime will soon be over, and soon, you’ll be able to join your iPhone-wielding friends on FaceTime calls. In a move widely seen as Apple’s answer to Zoom video calls, the software giant is making it possible for people who have Android phones and Windows laptops to hop on FaceTime calls — no iPhone required.

That isn’t to say that Apple devices are cut out of the process. In fact, they’re still so much part of the heart of FaceTime that the system will rely on the upcoming iOS 15 operating system to look and work more like Zoom and Microsoft Teams. In addition to speaking with others outside Apple’s bubble, FaceTime updates will include a new grid view and the ability to schedule calls.
