FB video chat powered by Skype.

Today, we are excited to announce that Skype's partnership with Facebook goes even further, as we are now making it possible to video chat with your friends right from within Facebook. This is an exciting step for us as it represents Skype's first big step on the Web, and because we know this has the potential to unlock even more conversations and make the experience on the Web even more social.

To get started connecting face to face using Facebook video calling, powered by Skype, it's quick and easy. Just ensure your Facebook Chat status is set to "online" and you are ready to go! You can initiate a Facebook video call right from the Chat box or you can click on your friend's Profile and if they are online, a "Call" button will appear at the top right of their Profile page. If your friend does not answer, you can leave them a video message. Your recorded video message will be waiting in your friend's Inbox the next time they check their Messages.

That's good news, though I don't care about FB's chat at all ..because I hardly ever use it.
What weird is that I didn't find the option to make video calls. There's no call button at te top right of any FB profile.

Su was on hand at the unveiling and gave a walkthrough of the video chat application, which requires a free update download from Facebook to get the feature up and running
You have to download it first.

where do you download it?

Also, if this works good, then Google+ is definitely not going to succeed haha. Good timing on Facebooks part, that's for sure. I'm guessing that its not a coincidence.

I'm not at home to see how well it works. But from the screenshot it sounds like it's an amazing idea. !!

I'm starting to feel excited!

I can't find anywhere on my facebook chat to have skype on it. I've been really confused because everyone has been moaning about their chat changing, but mine hasn't changed. :s
