This is because Facetime only works with Apple devices only. Therefore, any Apple users who have Apple devices would definitely have an Apple ID. From the list, just choose any person that you want to add on Facetime. You can also search the name, email or number of the person in the search bar at the top. It will then find the contact person that you have listed in your contact list. Once you find that person, just click on that person’s name and it will then appear on the Facetime history contact list. So, each time you open your Facetime, the name of the person that you have a history of Facetime video or audio call will appear. This will make it much easier for you to connect using Facetime in the future. Another way of adding people on Facetime is by asking the contact person’s Apple ID. The Apple ID is in email format and you can have it manually entered into your address book.
