Apple device users sometimes use FT to refer to FaceTime, the video call software bundled with iPhones, iPads, and Macs. FT is most often used when asking someone if they want to conduct a FaceTime call.
For example, consider the following exchange between a parent and child:
Parent: "I don't know how to connect to the Internet at this hotel. Can you help?"
Child: "Sure. You probably just have to pull up the Wi-Fi login. Have you connected to their network?"
Parent: "... What button do I click to do that?"
Child: "It might be easier if we just FT."
Parent: "What's FT?"
Child: "FaceTime, mom. I'm going to video call you, just a sec."
Only Apple devices have FaceTime installed, so only Apple device users are likely to use FT to mean FaceTime. If you don't have an Apple device and you've been invited to FT, you'll have to explain that you don't have access to FaceTime.

Ft means featuring. It is an abbreviation often used in the music industry to highlight every artist that contributes to a track.
When 2 or more artists collaborate on a song the main artist receives the artist label and then the ft abbreviation follows with the other collaborating artists. While the ft abbreviation is most commonly seen on songs it may also appear in concerts headlines, talk shows with special guests, and gaming streams with multiple gamers. Featuring may also be abbreviated as feat too.
