Skype integrates Facebook friends
The move comes after the two companies announced a partnership last month that would allow Facebook users to make video calls to each other. Now, users can make those calls from the Skype client.
"Initiating a Facebook-to-Facebook call from within Skype is quite easy; all you need to do is connect your Skype and Facebook accounts. Then, select a Facebook friend and hit the video call button in Skype – your friend simply picks up the call from Facebook," Skype said in a statement.
"This new feature lets you maintain social connections with your Facebook friends and complements previously announced features such as being able to see when your Facebook friends are online, read their status updates and IM them all from Skype."
