At the Apple World Wide Developer Conference (WWDC) today Apple announced that the latest iOS12 software update for the iPhone, iPad and Mac (expected to be live later this year) will support FaceTime group video calls with the ability to coordinate video calls with up to 32 participants supported by messaging features during the calls. FaceTime call participants can be added at beginning or mid-conversation and can select to join via video or audio only.

Imagine how powerful this will make FaceTime calls for Healthcare uses? Imagine how much more efficiently 911/999 Emergency FaceTime Calls would be? Imagine how amazing it would be for GPs to be able to dial up other Carers, Family Members and Specialists when they need assistance during a Consultation? Imagine how much more effectively Video Consulting services are going to be able to perform?


What uses and new services can you think of for this new mobile video calling service?
