    I still wish Apple kept the "Answering Machine" feature in one of their Leopard beta's in 2006. It allowed for a video away message and for friends to leave video messages.

    Would be a great feature for FaceTime, especially with iDevices and OS X using FaceTime more frequently. Wonder why they dropped it.

    Hmm, I'm thinking we should all go to apple.com/feedback and put in this request. I'm serious, I think this would be an awesome feature to have working with todays iOS and OS X features.

    Missed FaceTime call appears in OS X 10.8 notifications center with a "voicemail".

    Sent to Apple's feedback. This would be a great addition!

    I may get a "Time Out" or slap on the wrist, but with the closing discussions on OS X 10.9, this feature request is gaining more momentum, soooo forgive me for reviving it.

    More have been writing Apple (developers and consumers) about adding this feature and/or combining FaceTime with iMessage in OS X. I highly recommend if you believe you'd benefit from this to write Apple here or here. :)
