Apple Releases Updated Version Of macOS Mojave 10.14.3 Which Carries Fix For The Prevailing Group FaceTime Bug
If you're up for it, the new macOS Mojave 10.14.3 update can be downloaded by navigating to the "Software Update" section from System Preferences. As far as release notes are concerned, they only specify security updates which point to the bug in Group FaceTime feature.
If you're unfamiliar with the issue, the Group FaceTime bug basically allowed an individual to make a call on FaceTime and then enter their own number again to force a Group FaceTime call. When the Group FaceTime interface was initiated, the individual would hear everything on your end even if the call was not attended. On your end, the interface would simply show that the Group FaceTime call had not been activated while the other person could hear everything being said.
The issue was discovered last Monday and Apple took its FaceTime servers offline until a proper fix was devised. Well, the issue is now fixed and FaceTime will function properly. We would totally recommend you to update to the latest build as soon as possible.
