Facetime is an extremely user-friendly and feature-rich Application, probably that's the reason why the world is looking forward to knowing how to download Facetime for Windows PC! And that's exactly what this article will help you with.
But before that let me dive into the basics, that will clear some air and give you a clearer view of why this article and Facetime is worth your time! (If you already aren't totally sure about that!)
Facetime is the application that iOS (Apple INC) designed in order to rival the Video calling market. The market was already dominated by Skype! But when has that stopped Apple from dominating?
What Makes Facetime Unique?
As the name suggests, "Face+Time" is an application that lets you talk to your pals and relatives "face-to-face" in "real-time." Hence the name!
So well yeah it's a video-calling app that much has been established. But how come Apple thought of going with this project considering the fact that the market is already over-laden with such applications?
Well, the reason is Apple was confident enough that Facetime does have some features and options that the other companies don't! And of course, "Apple" has significant branding and marketing edge, which push all of its releases right on the Top list!
So here's what makes Facetime unique:-
Group Video Calls - Facetime on Windows PC (just like it's native iOS app) supports Group video calls! A lot of video calling apps out there either don't support conference calls or charge something in return!
Individual one to one calls - Of course that's the prime objective of Facetime! To let users connect to each other directly! So yeah you can call your friends and family directly.
Call to Facetime Switch - There's this super awesome option available! I mean how many times are you just calling your friends or someone and then feel like it's draining too much of the money?
Or anyway, the traditional voice calls are so old fashioned are they not? You need something more. Something like "seeing" the other person. And that's where Facetime comes in.
Guess what; that's not all! I mean of course Facetime lets you video call but that's not what I started this section for, the reason for me writing this special section is the special feature from Facetime.
The feature that lets you 'switch' from a traditional call to a Facetime call with just one touch of the screen! Well yeah if you're calling someone and suddenly change your mind, you can just hit the Facetime button and it will get converted to a Facetime call!
Background Runtime - The one other great feature about Facetime is that you don't need to be logged in or running Facetime 24X7 in order to receive calls with it.
In fact, Facetime allows you to receive calls with it even when it isn't running! How cool is that, right? Yeah I mean, unlike the other apps, for eg. Skype or Google Hangouts, you won't be wasting unnecessary data waiting for calls to happen!
Call from Pc's - Didn't think it was possible? Well, it is! If I'm going to show you how to download Facetime for Windows Pc 7/8/10,
The reason being that you'd be able to make calls directly from your PC once you've downloaded and installed Facetime on it. Yeah, I mean the Facetime app will be using your laptop webcam in order to make the calls, but yeah that's totally possible!
So that was why Facetime is in-demand and the reason for the world going crazy for it! So yeah now let's work on getting Facetime for your Windows computer.
How to Download Facetime for Windows PC
In order to download Facetime for Windows PC, you'd need an Emulator. An Emulator is a piece of code or software that you run on your native system.
Upon being run, it creates a separate box, section or area inside your OS, that newly created area consists of the OS environment of the required OS.
For eg. Facetime is an iOS application and it won't run anywhere else except iOS. So what we will be doing is we would be creating the virtual environment of iOS on our Windows PC's and after that would be running the application.
- Download iPedian! iPedian, as the name suggests is the iOS emulator for Windows! It creates the environment of iOS on your Windows' devices.

Let me make clear that, using iPedian isn't illegal. When you download and install iPedian on your Windows system, you're literally installing a new "device" inside your windows system . Hence it's like you just got a new Apple device.
So it's not illegal to use Facetime on a new Apple device, is it? The same applies here.
