Q: Hi, I was wondering if FaceTime can work with Yahoo Messenger on a computer or can FaceTime connect to a computer at all?

- April

Q: Can a person download FaceTime to their PC so an iPod touch can call that computer?

- Kevin

A: At this point, FaceTime is only compatible with other devices running the FaceTime app. Apple has released a version of FaceTime for the Mac that allows Mac users to connect to iPhone, iPod touch and iPad devices running FaceTime, but there is not presently a FaceTime app for the Windows operating system. Apple does not typically announce its software release plans, so it is impossible to know whether a FaceTime app for Windows will eventually appear.
