Although Facetime is only available for Apple devices, some Roku users are looking to get this app on their devices. But, you can’t find the FaceTime app on the Roku Channel Store. Instead of installing the app, you need to screen mirror/AirPlay the Facetime app from your Apple device.

With Facetime, you can make a seamless connection with friends over video calls. It has features like Mic modes that help you with noise cancellation and portrait mode that helps you with blurring your background.
