Last week CEO and founder of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg announced on the brink of Google plus, that Facebook will be unavailing something “awesome” very soon.
Today “awesome” was announced. Google has been working with Skype and have unveiled their new video chat instalment. Facebook’s blog announced that “A few months ago, we started working with Skype to bring video calling to Facebook. 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.”
A couple changes have also been made to the Facebook chat, in order to face their new competition Google+. One of the most notable changes is a group chat feature, that will allow Facebook’s 750 million users to chat together in groups up to seven. The group chat does not apply to the new video installment, which is only for one-to-one calls. More announcements may come today from their headquarters in Palo Alto, California.
