Can FaceTime be answered on ATV4?

Been thinking about an AT4 for awhile - I have 2 ATV3's - and was wondering if there is a native FaceTime app for it.

This is the deal breaker for me and the ATV4. It just not compelling enough to upgrade to it from my ATV3.
Just saw this product
Something like that would make a lovely complimentary device for ATV & all iOS & Mac OS devices using Facetime.
I'll settle for a small camera sitting on top of my TV working with the ATV4.

I've facetime via airplay plenty.
That's interesting. For some reason I assumed airplay wouldn't work.

That makes sense though.

Do you answer and then start airplay? That would work with the ATV3 then, too, I assume.

Yeah, answer or call out, then mirror to ATV3. I don't have a 4, but I figure this should work there too.
