FaceTime video chat has been around for years, but iOS 7 adds an audio-only option that's a prudent choice when you're not fit for public viewing. Sure, FaceTime's Apple-centric nature limits its usefulness in a multi-platform world -- you'll need another VoIP service such as Skype for audio calls to your Android- and Windows-lovin' friends and colleagues. (Of course, you could try a cellular call as well.) FaceTime Audio currently works only via Wi-Fi on the iPhone and iPad.

re: 10 Epic iOS 7 Tips
The advantage of a facetime audio only connection is that you can talk to someone that is out of your calling area if you are on Wifi or data.  Think of it like built in Skype.  We use this all the time as one of our offices is in EU and we are in the USA.  Its a free connection.

Too bad, so sad.

One article gets a read; seven pieces of listicle in a slide show? Not so much.

You lose.

Isn't a FaceTime audio call just a phone call? LOL
