Facebook unveils Skype powered video chat

Much rumored Facebook video chat product powered by Skype has just come out.

It is where future is heading. Video calling will not longer is a product that needs to live in some labs. It is the thing for real world.

The social networking revolution which as on now seems to be led by Facebook goes a step further with this feature. Already there were apps like TinyChat which could be used to video chat with Facebook.

But now you can start your conversations right inside Facebook without having to install anything.

From Facebook blog,

“Video chat has been around for years now, but it’s still not an everyday activity for most people. Sometimes it’s too difficult to set up, or the friends you want to talk to are on different services.

So a few months ago, we started working with Skype to bring video calling to Facebook. We built it right into chat, so all your conversations start from the same place. To call your friend, just click the video call button at the top of your chat window.

For those of us who have been working on this, it’s particularly exciting to bring video calling to over 750 million people. We’re making this available in over 70 different languages, so friends can stay in touch all over the world.”

Facebook will be rolling out soon to every user. But if you can’t wait then head over here and start videocalling.
