    How would FaceTime on Mac and PC benefit you?
    Share about how you would use FaceTime differently and share in what situations you would use it for.

    I personally would love it if FaceTime came to Mac and PC platforms. As of today, I don't have many friends that have iPhone 4's so I hardly ever use FaceTime.
    But in the near future, I would be able to video chat with my friends that have the 4th Generation iPod Touch and anyone who has a Mac or PC.
    This wouldn't just be an Apple service anymore. Anyone would be able to do PC-PC video chats with this new technology.
    I can't wait for this to become popular, then this will finally solve our problems with other video chat clients.
    I would be starting to use video chat on regular basis. Can't wait!

    You can get FaceTime for the Mac. I have it on my MacBook Pro right now.

    Have they updated FaceTime for the Mac yet? I know when I first got my iP4, my daughter tried installing FT on her Mac, but her os was too old. I haven't tried installing it on my Mac because I have an iP4 and don't need it on my Mac.

    I would love to be able to FaceTime from my iPhone 4 to my mother on her PC, so she can see her granddaughter. Gramma will not be getting an iPhone (or any non-feature phone) so that would be her only opportunity to use FaceTime. I have found the quality far superior to Skype.

    FaceTime is on the Mac. I have it as well. Doubt it would go to the pc though.

    I would probably use it similarly to using the video chat in iChat right now, or in place of Skype when wanting to talk to someone who I know has an iPhone or iPod touch, or vice versa using my own if I was on vacation or something similar with people at home. I don't see myself moving back to PC any time soon, but perhaps in conjunction with some family or friends who still have them?

    I use it pretty regulary actually. I like it, theres no real "account" needed like with skype and it seems that the video and audio is a better quality than when we use skype. We use it to talk to our parents and my daughter loves it because she likes to take the phone into the other room to talk to talk to grandma and show off her new toys lol (she's ten) and when we are at gymnastics i can FaceTime my parents and they can watch her do her routine in pretty darn good quality. Just wish we could use it over 3G better than with skype.

    Last time I checked, it still required Snow Leopard... I have it on my MBP, but use it only to demonstrate FaceTime to my non-Mac, non-iPhone4 friends...

    Skype works just fine. Facetime is more like a toy.
