This is what Skype wrote on its blog :

This new development in the Skype-Facebook partnership is the latest example of how Skype is removing communication barriers and making it easier to connect with friends, family and business colleagues. Our approach to social is about personal connections with people. 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.

According to skype all you need to do to setup a facebook to facebook call from skype is to connect your facebook account with skype. Then you can just hit the video call button on skype and your friend can pick up the call from facebook. With this new feature you can stay connected to your facebook friends via skype, read their status updates and IM them, you also get to know when they are online.

These applications also include video rendering which is available for Mac users to get a smoother video call experience. Windows users can get a group sharing screen with a premium subscription. This move will definitely add up to the heat between Google + and Facebook.

You can download the Pc version of the application here and Mac version here.

We leave you with an official video posted by skype, but do tell us will you download these applications? Have you been waiting for this?
