Facebook has just announced the previously rumored full integration with Skype, which finally brings video chat to the social networking giant.
“A few months ago, we started working with Skype to bring video calling to Facebook,” Facebook announced on its blog. “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.”
The new chat product, according to Facebook’s blog, will allow users to call their friends right from Facebook. The revamped chat system now includes a sidebar with “the people you message most.” It automatically appears when your browser is big enough.
Facebook has also announced Group Chat which easily allows multi-person, instantaneous chats, and simultaneously overhauls the entire design of chat, and shows your most messaged friends in a sidebar.
