It's no secret that for a long time users have been asking (demanding, rather) for a group option on FaceTime, Apple's video calling feature. And just this week our prayers have been answered, with Apple announcing that we can finally FaceTime multiple people at the exact same time. But wait, there's more! You can now FaceTime up to 32 people at once. That seems like a lot of people considering I only ever FaceTime 2 people. But each to their own.
Upon hearing this announcement, Twitter got to talking, and the buzz generated was HUGE. Group FaceTime is expected to function with a moving tile display of faces connected to the call, and when someone starts talking, their face will float to the forefront of the screen. Along the bottom will feature a scrolling bar of the users also on the chat, and you can choose who you want to see. Naturally, the twitter-sphere exploded.
