Apple has announced a public beta of FaceTime for Mac, an application that allows Mac users to video call iPhone 4 and iPod touch users as well as other Macs.
FaceTime for Mac automatically uses your Address Book contacts, rather than you having to create a new list and it works seamlessly with the built-in camera and mic on Mac notebooks, iMac and Apple LED Cinema displays.
“FaceTime makes video calling to or from mobile devices easy for the first time,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “We’ve sold more than 19 million FaceTime-ready iPhone 4 and iPod touch devices in the past four months, and now those users can make FaceTime calls with tens of millions of Mac users.”
FaceTime for Mac requires Mac OS X Snow Leopard and an Apple ID.
