How To Use Grid View In FaceTime With iOS 15

Virtual group hangouts have been revolutionized since the introduction of group FaceTime. FaceTime group interface is confusing, with bubbles floating around in random sizes, and no clear indication as to who is speaking.

FaceTime With iOS 15


We have been gifted with Grid View with iOS 15, which eliminates the small but irksome problem with FaceTime. When you switch to Grid View, your video chat participants are arranged into neat squares across your screen, and they are highlighted with a white outline.

What's the best part? There's no need to exit the call to rummage around in the settings, as navigation is right there in FaceTime itself.

To activate Grid Mode, make sure you're in a group FaceTime.

FaceTime is technically available in Grid Mode on solo calls too, but it looks the same. Be sure you have three other people in the FaceTime with you in order to get the maximum effect.

Everyone here should be familiar with the FaceTime group feature. In case you need a refresher, you can either find the FaceTime icon in the upper right corner of your favorite group chat and call everyone or click "New FaceTime," select the person you'd like to call, and then tap to video call them.

Once on the call, tap on the screen to pull up the tool bar.

You can mess with the various settings at the top of your screen, such as mute, video on/off, and SharePlay. All of the settings should be displayed above any personal information (such as FaceTime links) or the names of those in the call. Once you've done that, a new screen will appear with additional call settings.

Tap on "Grid Layout," and the button should turn white.

In order to turn Grid View on, the button must turn opaque and white. When you're done, just click "Done." and enjoy your carefully crafted FaceTime conference.

There is a minor annoyance when you like Grid View better than the usual group call view. The feature can be turned back off in the call settings if, for some reason, you prefer chaotic bubbles.
