Why Can’t I See How Long I Was On FaceTime? 

The very common reason is that you have not terminated your FaceTime call. You must know that you must end the call to check how long you’ve been on FaceTime.

Although there are not many reasons for which you are not able to see how long you were on FaceTime, we picked some crucial ones that can leave an impact on your call duration on FaceTime or vehemently on your notifications.

1. iOS 13 And 14 Above

If you are an iOS 13 and14 user,  you are most probably uncertain where your call duration can be seen.

Well, previous models of Apple’s iOS devices had a green rectangular bar that ran from right to left side at the top of the screen, and it was visible even when you were on FaceTime. 

But this time, Apple wanted to make the top screen clearer and clean in their latest version.

Therefore, it is simply your iOS version; if you update the version, you will not be able to see the duration like before.

2. Technical Glitches

In this case, you have followed either of the above methods, and still, you are not able to see how long you have been on FaceTime.

 Do not worry; this is just a technical glitch. At times your device is not able to pick up signals or sync notifications in the form of bars, pop-ups, or even store them.

3. Not The Same IOS Operating System

You will be able to connect with other Apple users for FaceTime on the condition that you have the same operating system as you.

If the other person uses a different operating system, it may cause a hurdle when it comes to checking out the green oval bar to see how long you have been on the call.

In other words, having a different iOS version and the person you are on FaceTime has a different iOS version might, at some point, you or the other person will not be able to see the green oval bar.

To check if you have any pending software updates. Go to Settings and click on the option General and Tap on the second option, which is Software update.
