Skype adds Facebook video chats
Internet phone service Skype said Thursday that it will let users of its software make video calls to their Facebook friends and receive them, too. The free feature, released Thursday in a “beta’’ test version of Skype’s software for Macs and PCs, expands on an existing partnership between the companies. Since July, Facebook has allowed users with webcams on their computers to make Skype-powered video calls on the social-networking site. And it had already been possible to chat with your Facebook friends through Skype’s instant-messaging feature, though there wasn’t yet a video component.
