Download Facetime For Android: Install Facebook Messenger
Although Apple has not “shared” its proprietary video calling app with android users (yet), there are other ways to enjoy the “Facetime” experience on your Android devices. For this update, we are going to install “Facebook Messenger” on your Android device.
I chose this app because you may already have Facebook installed on your gadget but you haven’t installed its essential “partner“.
Follow the steps below to download and install a Facetime “alternative” for Android.
Step 1. Using your Android device, open PlayStore and search for “Messenger“. It will be the first in line.
Step 2. Simply tap the apps icon to download and install the program to your device.
Step 3. After installation, open “Messenger” and you will see all your online Facebook friends.
Step 4. Now you start a video call with your friends using Facebook Messenger similar to Apple’s Facetime.
Facebook Messenger, in my opinion, is the closest you can get to Facetime. It’s absolutely free and the quality of the video call is excellent (depending on your internet connection). An internet connection with a download speed of at least 500 kilobytes per second (kbps) is recommended.
The video below shows the complete installation process of downloading, installing and making a video call using Facebook Messenger.
Very easy, isn’t it?
As a bonus, I will also show you how to install another video calling app for your Android device. This time I will use Google’s latest release, Duo, to show you how to do “Facetime” on your Android gadget.

Developed by Google, Duo is a mobilevideo chat app released by the search giant on August 16, 2016. The app is available for both Android and Apple (iOS) operating system.
