No, you can't.

Our son calls via Skype from his Android phone to our iPad mini - our iPad mini also runs Kindle app, Nook app, and Overdrive app

Please answer me. Thanks.

@Karin: Isn't Facetime an Apple app? If yes, then that is the answer. iPads and Kindles use a completely different operating system. So unless Apple writes a Facetime app for the Android operating system, it will not happen.

Because Apple makes Facetime and they only make it for their own products.

Because you didn't pay the special facetime Kindle fee...

Apple makes Facetime for Windows also
but its not supported on Kindle

Well duh, Kindle isn't a Microsoft device either! Again, totally different operating system.

So, go pester Apple to make you a FaceTime app for your Fire.

Karen, where do you see Facetime for Windows available ?
I don't think it exists, but merely listed as a joke ?

Many things make me sad. Suffering, cruelty, death of loved ones. Lack of Facetime on Kindles, not so much.

Clowns make me sad.

What? Facetime has ZERO to do with Kindles. Facetime is for iThings only.
