News of Facebook and Skype hopping into bed together broke the other week but now it’s official. Skype just announced that Facebook’s News Feed and Phonebook would be integrated into the latest update of Skype for Windows. Sorry, Mac owners, we’re left in the dark on this one.
Besides News Feed and Phonebook integration, Skype users can call and SMS their Facebook besties on their landline or cell phone. And, as always, Skype-to-Skpye calls between Facebook friends is free. A beta trial of group video calling is also bundled into the new update. Get thee to the new Skype.
