Apple may finally be adding the highly anticipated group video feature to FaceTime in iOS 11. The report comes from a sketchy source, The Verifier, claims that the feature will be baked right into iOS 11 however doesn’t mention if it will come to other Apple platforms however that’s assumed.
The report cites “several people familiar with [the] iOS development process (partly developed in Israel)” but this is the first time it’s being reported. Specifically, it notes that Apple will build the feature right into Messages on iOS to allow group chats for up to five people.
FaceTime currently, and has always been, strictly two people only since it launched back in 2010. When iOS 7 launched, Apple introduced FaceTime Audio which allowed users to do voice calls over FaceTime.
Apple will more than likely announce iOS 11 at WWDC in June. If this rumor holds true, we could potentially see this make it to the list, however this is the first time we’ve heard rumblings about such a feature and it’s coming from a not-so-reliable source.
