Apple has released the first beta of macOS Mojave with Group FaceTime -- a feature that the company promised it would bring to iOS 12 and macOS. According to a report in Cult of Mac, the release also brings with some bug fixes and a good news for those enrolled in the Apple Developer Program. Apple used to previously charge $99 a year for access to the OS but now, the company is offering a free sign-in for this update. Also, those who previously joined the program, there is no need to sign up again to get access to masOS Mojave betas.
Group FaceTime was first announced at the company’s WorldWide Developers Conference in June and allows up to 32 people to participate in a video call simultaneously. The feature was scheduled to be released on iOS 12 and macOS Mojave but the company decided to delay it during the beta-testing process because it was reportedly not ready to ship with the official release. Apple said that the feature will be rolled out to both iOS and macOS later this year.
Recently, Apple made macOS Mojave available to download for all MacBook and iMac users. The new operating system has features like Dark Mode and Continuity Camera that allows iPhone users to photograph an object or scan any document using their iPhones to automatically make it appear of their Macs. The Mac App Store also gets an overhaul with macOS Mojave and Safari browser gets an Intelligent Tracking Prevention feature. macOS Mojave also brings Apple News, Stock and Voice Memos apps from iOS.
