Facetime group audio calling issue

iOS & iPadOS

Hello everyone. I am having a problem with FaceTime group audio calling. I tried to call a person on faceTime, then added another. The Merge Calls button is dimmed, why is this? Thanks for your help.

Hey Everyone,

Since Group FaceTime has been enabled, my friends and I have ran into some glitches that need to be addressed. My friends and I talk on the Group FaceTime all the time now. The glitches we are having are sometimes we have people being kicked off or disconnected from the call without hitting the end button. The other issue we are having is that sometimes we can not hear each other. We have to leave the call to fix the audio issue. Otherwise, the Group FaceTime works well for the most part.

The best workaround for making a group facetime call is to first create a group in your text messages with those people in it then start the call within that message thread.
