About Microsoft Teams and Apple FaceTime
Both Teams and FaceTime are video-calling programs that enable users to talk to their friends while seeing each other. Yet, Teams is developed by Microsoft mainly for Windows and Android users. It can also be used in macOS, iOS, and Linux operating systems (OSes) as well as the web version.
FaceTime is developed by Apple Corporation only for Apple products including Mac, iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, and Apple Watch. It supports Mac OS X 10.6.6 and later versions as well as iOS 4 and later versions.
Microsoft Teams in Windows 11
Microsoft gives its Teams app a big upgrade and integrates it in the new Windows 11. You can directly access Teams from the taskbar at the center by default instead of downloading and installing it on your computer when you need it like in Windows 10.
Just click on the icon with a white video logo in a purple chat bubble and enjoy group video conferencing face-to-face; it will be as easy as opening FaceTime on Mac computers. Besides, you are able to enter groups on any devices including Windows PCs, Android phones, Mac machines, iPhones, as well as Linux computers even without a Microsoft account.
While Teams is originally aimed at commercial use, it is now for both commercial and personal users in Windows 11. Thus, you can make use of it to call not only your colleagues but also your friends or families.
By switching from Skype to a new chat client powered by its Teams program, Microsoft seems to take on the FaceTime of Apple with it. Teams is the default app for users to share messages, files/folders, direct talk, and even texting via SMS. It has replaced the “meet now” feature on Win10.
