With today's conference came the announcement of FaceTime for Mac. While some expected it to be part of the new OSX or even a part of iLife, that didn't turn out to be the case. The beta is available right now, by following this link: FaceTime for Mac
We gave it a shot and found it to be pretty straight-forward.
1) The first thing you will want to do is download the application, which is linked above.
2) After downloading, you will need to install the application on your computer.
3) Upon installing, FaceTime for Mac will be available in your 'Applications' folder.
4) Click to launch.
5) FaceTime will ask you to enter your Apple ID. If you already have one, you simply enter the email and password associated with you Apple ID. If not, you will have to create one.
6) After doing that, you will be sent a verification email:
7) Click on the "Verify Now" Link to take you to the verification page. There you will login with your Apple ID (you may already be logged in if you frequent Apple's website)
8) Facetime will make sure that you want to use that email address as a way for people to reach you for video chats.
9) Your contacts list will show up on the right side, and you can call anyone who has a FaceTime device. However, one particular contact we tried fetched us the message "___ must update their version of FaceTime."
10) You call your contact, and when they answer, you are using FaceTime for Mac
Special thanks to our friend Carl for letting us examine his keyboard.
