  • Finally, these small things do change the user experience and actually helps ppl feel more connected with each other. Great stuff from Apple, they still have so much work to catch up from an AI/ML standpoint vs Google. Glad Tim Cook's adding of a SVP of Machine Learning and AI Strategy is paying off.

  • Fairly major update to how remote communication is evolving. Eye contact is a big part of conversations and that disconnect between where the camera is and where you are looking is impactful! I can’t wait to use this new technology as it becomes more widespread.

  • As someone who doesn’t like using video because of not liking that the camera and the person aren’t aligned, this sounds really cool! Sounds like it doesn’t work on older devices though.

  • For this feature, in my opinion, Apple is actually setting the standard in both AI usage driven by Data Privacy Storage... The real question here is: when are ISP going to take seriously the next steps in 5G common goals stablished long time ago?

  • So now I will be able to “multitask” while seeming interested in the person(s)on the other end of the “convo” LOL

  • Wow, this is one subtle update that has so beautiful impact for the user (though I'm sure it'll become second nature 2 months into the roll out). I hope this gets ported across OS once IOS releases it. The experience of having a video call completely changes with this feature. Now this is innovating. 👍

  • A great feature. I hope more vendors will now follow suit.

  • There is culture to consider. Studies comparing eye contact during conversation show that it can have quite as much effect as content. Hold your lover tightly and look them in the eyes and say,”I love you!” Now do the same thing but look away when you speak! Quite different. In some cultures eye contact

    There is culture to consider. Studies comparing eye contact during conversation show that it can have quite as much effect as content. Hold your lover tightly and look them in the eyes and say,”I love you!” Now do the same thing but look away when you speak! Quite different. In some cultures eye contact is used when lying and aversion is used when being strongly truthful. Ai could potentially eliminate lying and bring extinction to politicians! How boring would life become?

  • A small feature in FaceTime for iOS 13 could be a big win for video conferencing. If this really works then Apple will have solved one of the most annoying things about video meetings.

  • I think it is a small thing. But such improvement give people who use FaceTime comfortable experiences.

    When I will use FaceTime next time, I will be easy to talk to.
