Skype through Facebook Official

Again another set of rumors that turn out to be true this week, the other being LoveFilm to come to PS3, this one is about Facebook and Skype to integrate with the release of Skype 5.0

The latest software release of Skype 5.0 will integrate with Facebook and will allow users to update their status and comment directly from Skype, and also get access to their Facebook friends list phonebook.

Skype 5.0 will also bring video conference capable of having up to 10 people at currently its still in beta mode and its free to test and try for the time being. When you use the video conference services the window of the person talking increases so you can see who is talking and be in track of the conversation, its a smart feature by Skype but very welcoming as you can get lost in a conversation when you have 10 people in a video conference.

Now that Skype have fully integrated with Facebook this should broaden their horizon of attracting new people and another way of keeping in touch, lets hope that we can start using some of these features in our smartphones.
