Apple iPod: How to set up FaceTime on iPod Touch

Want to get connected to your FaceTime friends just by using your iPod? No problem. All you need is your Apple ID and you’re good to go.

What’s Your FaceTime Phone Number?

Unlike the iPhone, the iPod touch doesn’t have a phone number assigned to it. Because of that, making a FaceTime call to someone using a touch isn’t just a matter of typing in a phone number. Instead, you need to use something in place of a phone number to allow the devices to communicate.

In this case, you’ll use your Apple ID and the email address connected to it. That’s why logging into your Apple ID during the setup of the device is so important. Without that, FaceTime, iCloud, iMessage, and a bunch of other web-based services won’t know how to connect to your touch.

Setting Up FaceTime

In recent years, Apple has made getting started with FaceTime on the touch much easier than it was when the 4th-gen. touch was first introduced. Now, FaceTime is enabled as part of the process of setting up your device. As long as you log in to an Apple ID as part of the set-up process, you’ll automatically be configured to use FaceTime on your device.

If you didn’t turn on FaceTime during set up, just follow these steps:

  1. Tap the Settings app

  2. Scroll down and tap FaceTime

  3. Enter your password and tap Sign In

  4. Review the email addresses configured for FaceTime. Tap to select or remove them, then tap Next.

How to Make a FaceTime Call

To start a FaceTime video call on your iPod touch, you’ll need a device that supports it, a network connection, and some contacts stored in your touch’s Contacts app. If you don’t have any contacts, you can get them by:

  • Syncing them to your iPod touch

  • Entering them manually

  • Syncing them from online sources like Google Contacts and Yahoo Address Book.

Once you’ve met those requirements, follow these steps:

  1. Tap the FaceTime app to launch it

  2. There are two ways to select the person you want to chat with: By entering their information or by search

  3. Entering Their Information: If you know the phone number or email address of the person you want to FaceTime, type it into the Enter name, email, or number field. If the person has FaceTime set up for what you entered, you’ll see a FaceTime icon. Tap it to call them

  4. Search: To search the contacts already saved on your touch, start typing the name of the person you want to call. When their name shows up, if the FaceTime icon is next to it, that means they’ve got FaceTime set up. Tap the icon to call them.

How to Answer a FaceTime Call

​Answering a FaceTime call is much easier: when the call comes in, tap the green answer call button and you’ll be chatting in no time!
