Apple has released the first post-launch beta of the macOS Mojave operating system. And there’s confirmation that the unofficial version re-enables Group FaceTime.

Apple rolled out macOS Mojave 10.14.1 beta to developers on Tuesday, which is just a day after the public release of the new operating system for Mac devices.

Release notes for macOS 10.14.1 beta are still not available, but AppleInsider already calls it a minor update. The beta bears the model number 18B45d and it is believed to contain general performance improvements and bug fixes.

Interestingly, one developer who already tested the new update confirmed via MacRumors Forums that Group FaceTime is officially back. The marquee feature that was originally scheduled to launch with iOS 12 and macOS 10.14 was removed from betas last month.

The inclusion of Group FaceTime in macOS Mojave 10.14.1 beta suggests that the feature could go live when the first point update for the new Mac operating system is released. The feature was also spotted in iOS 12.1 beta last week.

Group FaceTime is a feature that allows up to 32 users to join a single video conference call on iOS and macOS devices. The feature was announced by Apple during the Worldwide Developers Conference in June.

When Apple demonstrated Group FaceTime to attendees of the conference, it did not reveal the release timeline for the new functionality. It only indicated that the feature will most likely debut later this fall.

Apple’s macOS Mojave is the newest operating system for MacBooks and other Mac devices. It comes with features like Stacks, Continuity Camera and Dark Mode, as well as two new built-in apps—Home and Voice Memos.

As indicated in its Support page, macOS Mojave is compatible with most Mac devices introduced in 2012 or later. Devices running OS X Mountain Lion or later can upgrade to Mojave directly.
