Yesterday we heard a rumor that Facebook would announce that they would be bringing Skype video chat integration to the worlds largest social network, and now Skype video chat for Facebook is official.
You can made video calls direct to your friends from within Facebook, and Skype has also integrated Facebook into their Skype desktop program, this means that more than 750 million Facebook users will now be able to use Skype for video chat.
Microsoft’s recent purchase of Skype for $8.8 Billion seems like a smart move, as Skype has over 100 million users who use the service regularly, and now they have 750 million potential new users.
You can find out more information about how the integration between Skype and Facebook works on both platforms over at the Skype Blog.
