In these times, a whole world is working from home. Our family time is spent over digital tools such as iMessage groups, FaceTime and Skype. And for me, that has also changed. The purpose of video calls has widened and become something more.
Video calls are becoming accepted as a place we can do stuff together rather than just have small conversations or sharing PowerPoint slides.
We, humans, need togetherness, and just now, we need to find it via digital channels. Beyond a computer screen and PowerPoint presentations. What would happen if Apple TV got support for a FaceTime app and an external webcam?
