How to Enhance Your FaceTime Experience: Adjusting Volume and Music

Imagine you’re enjoying some great music on your iPhone when suddenly, you receive a FaceTime call. The volume of the call is overpowering your music, and you wonder if there’s a way to turn down the FaceTime volume while still enjoying your favorite tunes. Well, you’re in luck! In this article, we will explore how you can adjust the FaceTime volume and increase the music volume simultaneously.

Adjusting FaceTime Volume and Music: The Solution

To turn down the FaceTime volume and boost the music volume, you need to adjust your FaceTime microphone setting to “Wide Spectrum.” This simple tweak will make a noticeable difference in your audio experience.

Note: If you’re using headphones during a FaceTime call and listening to music on your iPhone simultaneously, the music volume will automatically increase. So, if your music sounds too low, try using headphones to fix the issue.

Now, let’s dive into the details of how to listen to music while receiving a FaceTime call.

1. Listening to Music During a FaceTime Call

If you only want to enjoy your music while on a FaceTime call, here’s what you need to do:

  • When you receive an incoming FaceTime video or audio call while listening to music, pull down the control panel.
  • Look for the “FaceTime Microphone” option and tap on it.
  • You’ll see three options: Standard, Voice Isolation, and Wide Spectrum.
  • Choose “Wide Spectrum”, and your music will become louder.

Please note that completely reducing the FaceTime audio while increasing the music volume is not currently possible on iPhones or any other Apple devices. The purpose of the Wide Spectrum mode is to enhance background noises around you. Therefore, when you’re playing music on your iPhone and receive an incoming FaceTime call, selecting Wide Spectrum will amplify the sound from your music player along with the voice on your FaceTime call.

It’s essential to remember that the music might not be as loud as when you’re not receiving calls or experiencing any media interruptions on your iPhone.

2. Sharing Music During a FaceTime Call

If you want the person on the other end of the FaceTime call to hear the music as well, you can utilize the share option:

  • During a FaceTime call, tap on the screen to open the FaceTime menu.
  • Look for the “Shareplay icon” and tap on it.
  • Select Apple Music from the options.
  • Tap on the Apple Music icon, and it will open the music app.
  • Choose the song you want to play and hit the play button.
  • The person on the other end will see the option to “Join Shareplay”.
  • They can accept the request and tap on the “Open” button to listen to the song.

Please note that the person must have an active Apple Music account with a subscription to fully enjoy the shared music. Without an active subscription, they will only be able to listen to the song once. Other songs you play will not be accessible until they subscribe to Apple Music.

When it comes to adjusting FaceTime volume and music, these are the only options available at the moment.

How to FaceTime and Listen to Music Simultaneously

If you want to enjoy a FaceTime call while listening to music, follow these simple steps:

  • Minimize your music app and make your FaceTime call.
  • Ensure your FaceTime microphone is set to “Wide Spectrum”.
  • That’s it! With the microphone set to Wide Spectrum, you can listen to music and be on a FaceTime call simultaneously.

Please note that setting your FaceTime microphone to Standard or Voice Isolation will prevent you from listening to music while on a FaceTime call. So, remember to select Wide Spectrum, available on all Apple devices, for the best experience.

The Versatile Voice Isolation Feature

While Voice Isolation is not exclusive to FaceTime, it is available for all VoIP services like WhatsApp, Skype, Messenger, Viber, and more. You can find the Voice Isolation option when using these apps, allowing you to isolate the voice during calls.

It’s important to note that Voice Isolation and other features like Standard and Wide Spectrum are only available for FaceTime calls and other Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) calls. Cellular calls do not have these options.

In conclusion, adjusting FaceTime volume and music volume together is possible by setting your FaceTime microphone to Wide Spectrum. However, making music louder while on a FaceTime call is not feasible as the FaceTime audio will take precedence over the music. Enjoy your enhanced FaceTime experience with optimized audio playback!
