Books – Assem Al-Ansari:
Visetime is the preferred video calling application for many Apple users, but a software error has been detected that forces the user to listen to another when he makes a video call, even before answering it.
In addition, a program error not only results in recording the call recipient’s sound, but also trying to mute the call by pressing the volume down button or the power button turns on the camera, although the incoming call screen continues to be displayed on the receiver screen. But in fact, the caller will see and hear the interlocutor.
