Just when you thought you’d be off the hook to touch up your makeup before making a phone call, now you can video chat via Skype from within Facebook. The new video calling features are live now, and allows any friends on Facebook initiate video calls with only a few clicks. Skype is powering the video calls as the app is installed directly in the Web browser and allows no other program to download, which is really nice and reduces much of the headache involved in video chat.
The video chat option will appear as an icon in Facebook’s chat window and on each user’s profile page. Users can now visit a video calling page on Facebook to get started.
