Facebook and Skype will soon announce a partnership that will allow users to make calls to their friends via Facebook.
In what looks like a challenge to Google phone-in service, Facebook is all set to partner with Skype, leading Internet telephone service provider, to allow Facebook users to make calls to their friend via their Facebook profile.
The report which is yet to be confirmed by both the parties will bring in cheers to users of Facebook around the world. If the deal does comes through Facebook users will have the facility of texting, having video chat and voice chat with other individuals on their Facebook network. This deal will help Skype’s 560 million users to link with 500 million members Facebook.
This feature though will be available only through the new Skype 5.0 which is in the beta stage and will be in market within the next two to three weeks.
