While FaceTime calls are much more interactive and personal than regular old voice calls, you may find a time that you need to pause a video feed but continue talking to the person on the other end. Whether it’s kids running around or you need to tend to something around the house, you can easily convert a FaceTime call into an audio only call with one simple tap. When you’re ready to restart the video stream, you can do that just as easily.
- While on an existing FaceTime call, press the Home button.
- You’ll be returned to your Home Screen and you’ll now see a green bar along the top of the screen.
- Your FaceTime video feed will be paused but audio will continue to work.
- To return to the FaceTime call and resume a video chat, just tap the green baralong the top of the status bar.
