How to Chat With Your Facebook Friends Using Skype?

facebook video call on skype
Facebook is all about connecting with your friends. It might not be the best chatting client, but it is the largest database of people online, since around 901 million people use Facebook actively. Many of you might know about Skype. It is one of the best chatting and IM, and the best voice chat services in the world. It so happens that now, you can integrate the best chatting service in the world with the world's largest database of profiles, and you've got yourself a powerful recipe to connect with the people around you that you love. Yes! You can now use Skype to chat with your Facebook friends and video call them without visiting!
Skype added this functionality ever since Skype 5.5 was released for Windows. A Mac version was also released. Previously, Facebook only allowed you to initiate calls if both people were on Facebook. But now, you can simply do that through your Skype desktop client.

Get the latest Skype

For this feature to work properly, make sure your Skype is up to date. Simply go to the Skype website, and download the version of Skype appropriate for your platform. currently, tis feature is only available for Skype on Computer. But Skype is working on adding more devices and platforms, so hang in there while you connect :)

Connecting Skype With Facebook

To connect your Skype to Facebook, simply Click on View on the Skype Menu bar, and click on Skype Home. A new Skype windows will open up. Click on the cog icon as shown in the image below.

Connecting Facebook

Once you click it, you'll see an option to 'Connect to Facebook'. It you don't see it, that means you're already connected! Now, go over to your Skype main view and click on the Facebook icon next to Contacts.

Facebook on Skype

Once you click it, you'll see all your friends who are online on Facebook. You can talk to them or call them just like you would on Facebook. Cool, huh?

This is a very useful piece of functionality. It will expand the contact lists of many people, hence making it easier for them communicate with their friends, and that is what Skype aims for. here's what they said: "We are on a mission to connect over one billion people and our continued partnership with Facebook brings us one step closer to this goal."

I wouldn't say one step. Rather, Skype is 901 million steps closer to their goal, since there are so many people on Facebook. I would recommend one thing though. Don't turn on notifications from Facebook on Skype, because people are always coming and going on Facebook, so they might irritate you :)

  10. Actually I tested it once and it was pretty awesome. Straight from skype to be able to call people and video chat with them. It would be cool if facebook opened up their api more to allow other facebook video chat apps to do that.

  11. Great idea boy... you have a creative mind....... Thanks for sharing.
