I just download Facetime from the Mac Store today (April 21).  I'm on Snow Leopard (10.6.8) and when I try signing in, unable to.  Anyone else have this problem?  I thought the bug was fixed.

Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    Hey there JLOK,


    It sounds like you are unable to make a FaceTime call on your computer. Use this info from the following article to update the application first:

    Install the latest FaceTime update available from the Updates pane of the Mac App Store to resolve this issue.

    From: OS X: FaceTime calls no longer connect when using Snow Leopard



    If this does not resolve the issue, use this troubleshooting from the following article:


    FaceTime for Mac: Troubleshooting FaceTime


    If you encounter issues making or receiving FaceTime calls, try the following:

    • Verify that FaceTime is enabled in FaceTime > Preferences.
      • If the issue persists, or if you see the message "Waiting for Activation", try toggling FaceTime off and then on.
    • Verify that the Date, Time, and Time Zone are set correctly:
      1. From the Apple () menu, choose System Preferences > Date & Time > Date & Time.
      2. Enable "Set Automatically".
      3. Click the Time Zone tab and confirm the closest city is correct.
    • Verify that both parties are connected to an active broadband Internet connection.


    Thank you for using Apple Support Communities.

    All the best,
