Setup Pairing iPhone Calls in Mac OS X Yosemite


Mac OS X Yosemite included various new features that make it easier for Mac hardware to interact and share information with each other. One of the most interesting features in Mac OS X Yosemite is the ability to make and receive phone calls right on Mac when paired with iPhone.

Requirements:
– Mac running OS X Yosemite
– iPhone running iOS 8
– Both devices connected to same Wi-Fi network
– Both devices sign in the same iCloud account

Setup Mac Running OS X Yosemite:
1. Open FaceTime app located in Applications Folder.
2. Click on FaceTime in the menu bar on the upper left-hand corner of screen.
3. From the drop down menu, click Preferences.
4. Check the box next to iPhone Cellular Calls.

Setup iPhone Running iOS 8:
