OS X Mavericks 10.9.2 beta brings FaceTime Audio to the Mac

Apple recently shipped the first beta of Mac OS X 10.9.2 Mavericks to developers around the world. The update carried that anticipated slew of bug fixes and other enhancements, but it also brings at least one interesting feature for everyday users: FaceTime audio.

Apple’s VoIP solution shipped with iOS 7, and has been received very well, as it offers great sound quality and reliability. As other VoIP solutions — notably, Skype — are seeing losses in terms of reliability and call quality, it seems that Apple is trying to make strides to move into the market, at least for its line of products. Being overseas, I use FaceTime Audio almost daily in order to call friends and family, as the quality and reliability is much improved compared to Skype.

Do you use FaceTime Audio?
