I’ve only just recognised by pressing video chat on messenger I can get a FaceTime conversation much clearer than if I use the FaceTime app has anyone else used this method

Yes I video call via Messenger all the time. It's very efficient, including calling someone overseas.

I have been using it recently (first time a couple weeks back) to chat to my Uncle. He's in 12 weeks isolation and on his own so is finding it difficult. Used to being out and about most days it's not easy.

Yes, use it a lot to DD and DGS's, just finished one actually, so good to see/hear them all.

Yep, for years.

I love WhatsApp video calls with my family. I’m maybe telling you about something you already know but we’ve just recently discovered it’s possible to make a group video call on WhatsApp with up to 4 households on the split screen. To see my 2 sets of grandkids who live 140 miles apart excitedly chatting to each other on the screen gives me a great boost 💔
