Facebook announces video chat

Added on by TEK.GADG.

Facebook announced a new feature. Video chat. Facebook partnered up with Microsoft Skype to offer this free video chat service. According to their blog, you can chat with your friends with just one-click in the chat window. This is a good strategic move for Facebook, as it keeps them competitive against Google+. Google+ has every Google service linked to it, including Gchat video and Google Voice. Though it is not clear whether Google+ will actually catch on, Facebook needs to include features and prepare to fight against anyone.

We sure do hope that this service doesn't clutter up Facebook's UI again.
