What are video calls and how do you make them?

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Video calls are simply phone calls with video so you can see the person you are talking to. It’s great to be able to see the grandchildren or an old friend who you haven’t seen in years.

You will need to add an external microphone and camera (webcam) if your computer does not have one built in. If you don’t know please contact our live help where a friendly person will walk you through it.

Below are the icons for the most popular video call services Skype, Facetime and Google Hangouts.

Facetime – Works only between Apple devices, uses your Apple ID, and is pre-installed.
