It is as if we are living in a world where all the science fiction stories are coming to life. Following this trend, Apple has been leading the pack by loading FaceTime on its watch to connect people over the internet. FaceTime on Apple watches offers the same level of functionality as with any other Apple devices, except the video calling capacity. This is because the watches do not come with a camera, at least not yet. All you need to do is install it from Apple Store if it’s not already there on the device. When it comes down to making a call using FaceTime on Apple Watch, there’s more than one way to do that.

Method 1: FaceTime on Apple Watch using Siri

This is also the easiest way to make that call for you.  All you must do is, ask, “Hey Siri, FaceTime John”. If your watch doesn’t detect the utterance, you can invoke Siri by pressing the crown or by selecting the Siri app on your watch.


Method 2: FaceTime on Apple Watch using Phone App

The second method is not straight forward, at the same time it’s not too difficult too. You are going to use the Phone App in the watch to make a FaceTime call.


Unlock your watch, then navigate to open the Phone App, tap Contacts, search for and select the contact that you want to call.


Once identified, select Phone button, and tap “FaceTime Audio”

With the way the world is moving, we can soon expect the watches to have a camera, then one can make not just audio calls, but video calls using the FaceTime Apk on Apple Watches.
