The exclusive VoIP service Facetime is the real glamour of Apple. Apple users love this VoIP service as it lets them make video and voice calls among other Apple users regardless of the devices they are using. Also, you can communicate with them from anywhere in the world without worrying about carrier charges.

However, although Facetime is very easy to use, it’s a bit difficult to find the call duration of Facetime. So, are you looking for an outgoing or ongoing call duration on Facetime? Is it possible to see the duration?

Well, the answer is both Yes and No. But don’t worry. We’ll briefly explain everything. So, keep reading the article.

Recognizing Facetime Video Call

Facetime is a friendly application that makes audio and video calls easier. You can use Facetime on any kind of iOS device. All you need is to set your Apple ID and check the data usage of your mobile to make video calls. 

Undoubtedly, this is one of the best apps that you find in the app library. It also comes by default with your Apple iOS devices.

Is it Possible to Check Call Duration on an Ongoing Facetime Call?

Unfortunately, it’s not possible to check the ongoing duration of Facetime video calls. Instead, you can check the time of a Facetime audio call. 

In this case, you’ll see the call duration on the corner of your iPhone’s screen in a little green bar. 

If you’re using iOS 13 or above, then it’s impossible to see this green progress bar. But before iOS 13, it was possible to see the video call duration with a big green progress bar. 

But if you’re using iOS 14, the only option to check the Facetime Video call duration is after the call ends.

How Can You See the Call duration on Facetime?

As mentioned earlier, if you want to see the video call duration on Facetime, you need to wait until the call ends. 

Step 1: Open the “Phone” app

Once the call ends, go to the home screen of your iPhone and search for the Phone app. You’ll normally find it at the bottom of the home screen. 

Step 2: Search for the specific Facetime call 

Once you open the Phone app, it will display a list of all your video and audio calls on the screen. 

Now, all you need is to move down to find out the specific Facetime call whose duration you want to check. 

Keep in mind that you’ll find all your recent calls in this Facetime call history. 

Step 3: Tap the “i” icon

After you find the specific call, tap on the “i” icon located beside it. This will lead you to the call duration screen. 

Step 4: Check the call duration and more

In this screen, you’ll find every detail of the specific calls, such as call duration, data usage, contact name, etc.

That’s it. In this way, you can check the duration of Facetime calls. You can also check our article on How Many Times does FaceTime Ring.
