On Thursday, AT&T confirmed plans to become “less strict” regarding user access to the FaceTime video chat feature made possible through Apple’s iPhone over cellular – a feature that left Wi-Fi only territory with the update to iOS 6.
Before the announcement, AT&T had limited FaceTime over cellular to subscribers with shared data plans.
“AT&T today announced it will enable FaceTime over Cellular at no extra charge for iOS 6 customers with an LTE device on any tiered data plan,” the carrier revealed.
AT&T will also continue to offer FaceTime over Cellular to customers with any AT&T Mobile Share plan, as well as FaceTime over Wi-Fi, which has always been available for all customers.
AT&T says it will introduce this functionality to customers over the next eight to ten weeks.
