FaceTime is coming to Macs.

"The number one request we've gotten," said Jobs, "is can we please do FaceTime calling with these devices and the Mac?" With that, Jobs rolled out FaceTime for Macs. Answering a major request of many Mac users, today Steve Jobs demoed a FaceTime application for Mac OS X, a development that will rapidly expand the growth and usage of the video chat functionality made possible by FaceTime.

"We're really excited by this," said Jobs, reference the ability of iPhone 4 and iPod touch users now having the ability to video chat with Mac users via FaceTime, a new service available today on (in a beta). With nineteen million FaceTime users already spread around the world, it isn't hard to imagine that millions of new FaceTime users will be ushered into the era of video chat by way of today's revelation.

"I think people are going to like this based on the requests we've gotten," Jobs told the media gathered at Apple's Cupertino campus.
