Please Put In A Permanent Picture Button

I absolutely love FaceTime. From the video to the audio, everything works smoothly and stays connected better than any other video chat. With that said…

Before iOS 15, you can tap the screen to bring up the audio option menu, and if you tap mute then tap mute again to unmute, the menu as well as the button to take live or still photos from the other person’s phone would stay on the screen. Well, now with the iOS 15 update, the button and menu disappears after a few seconds forcing you to tap the screen to bring up the menu and button briefly.

I coparent with my ex and I’m on FaceTime with my son every single day. He started soccer this year and I would capture goals he would score with live shots and can always count on that button being up because it didn't disappear with iOS 14. Now, the button disappears with iOS 15 and it always manages to disappear at the wrong time. I missed a lot of goals. I managed to catch a few but your timing has to be impeccable, and with soccer games, things are just unpredictable.

Can you bring back a way to at least give us the option to leave the picture button up. And while we are at it, maybe move that menu down to where your thumb would be rather than having it at the top of the screen and making it unmovable. Thank you

This really helps though the update..

I really love calling with this, and parts of the new update. Though, one part of the update really messes with me while playing.
Though I’m not sure if this has to do with the app itself, it may be just an update with Apple, but I don’t really enjoy having to click just once in order to make the call full screen. I keep clicking on it accidentally, and I keep getting kicked out of the app I’m in, and sometimes it won’t save my progress.
This feedback is about me suggesting making it so that when we click on the call, it has a “main menu” where you can end the call, make it full-screen, mute, etc., just like before the update. Though, I really enjoy being able to share screen, and the better quality of the call.

Love the app, hate the update

I’ve always used FaceTime and love it but the most recent update really ruined things. I love that you can have a bubble of the screen if you exit FaceTime to use other apps at the same time, but the thing that I absolutely hate the most is that the end call button got switched to the top of the screen instead of the bottom. The button is half the size, I almost always miss it and it has made it 2x more difficult to end a call. Literally there is always an awkward silence at the end of every single phone call because neither of us can reach or tap the button quickly enough. Please change it back
