Apple Will Reportedly Add Group Video Call Feature to FaceTime in iOS 11


According to a report from Isreali technology blog The Verifier, FaceTime may finally gain group video call support in iOS 11.

If the release cycle of the past versions of iOS is any indication, we will see the announcement of iOS 11 in June and the release later in the fall. The report says that iOS 11 will focus on social elements of FaceTime and Messages.

According to sources, users will have to initiate a group FaceTime video call from a group chat in Messages. The video chat will reportedly be able to support up to five people.

A June announcement would coincide with Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference. The event typically focuses on OS updates planned to ship later in the year, giving developers an early glimpse at them and a chance to build or update apps with support.
