NOTE: When you make a video call, you have the option of using your front or back camera. If the person you're calling doesn't have a camera or chooses not to turn on their video, their video won't be viewable, but you can still hear them. The other person can still see your video even if they don't turn on their video.

Receive a video call

Tap Accept to accept an incoming video call. Tap Decline to decline the incoming video call.
