Facebook and Skype Hook Up
Whether you have Skype or not, all you need is a Facebook account to use the app for the software application that enables users to make video and voice calls for users. Skype released the two new models of the app, Skype 5.4 for Mac and Skype 5.7 Beta for Windows, today. The two new versions will add your Facebook friends to your Skype contact list.
We all remember when Facebook announced Skype-powered video chat months ago, but originally you could only video chat with others who were also on Facebook. Now, you can send out video calls from Skype to those on and off Skype but on Facebook. You can also use your Skype dashboard to see when your friends are on Facebook, read their status’ and instant message them. Skype said in a blog post, “We are on a mission to connect over one billion people and our continued partnership with Facebook brings us one step closer to this goal.”
