Manage FaceTime Calls

Multitask during a call. Press the Home button, then tap an app icon. You can still talk with your friend, but you can't see each other. To return to the video, tap the green bar at the top of the screen.

Juggle calls. FaceTime calls aren't forwarded. If another call comes in while you're on a FaceTime call, you can either end the first call and answer the incoming call, decline the incoming call, or reply with a text message. You can use call waiting with FaceTime audio calls only.

Use call waiting for audio calls. If you're on a FaceTime audio call and another call comes in— either a phone call or another FaceTime audio call—you can decline the call, end the first call and accept the new one, or put the first call on hold and respond to the new call.

Block unwanted callers. Go to Settings > FaceTime > Blocked > Add New. You won't receive voice calls, FaceTime calls, or text messages from blocked callers.
