Skype introduces Facebook integration, group video calls beta
Posted on 15-Oct-2010 11:19. | Tags Filed under: News.



Skype has announced the launch of the new Skype for Windows, which brings people together through voice and social networks.

The new Skype introduces integration with Facebook News Feed and Phonebook directly inside the software. It also adds a new group video calling feature available in open beta.

For the first time Skype users can keep up-to-date and interact with their Facebook News Feed, including posting status updates, commenting, and liking, directly from Skype.

The Facebook Phonebook in Skype allows users to call and SMS their Facebook friends directly on their mobile phones and landlines with just a few clicks. If your Facebook friend is also a Skype contact, you can make a free Skype-to-Skype call.

The company says video calling accounted for approximately 40% of all Skype-to-Skype minutes in the first half of 2010.

People who download the new Skype will receive a free trial of group video calling in beta for a chance to try out video calling with more than two people. The dynamic view makes it easy to follow along on group video calls by automatically moving the focus to the person speaking on the call.

Skype users have spent an average of 520 million minutes every day talking to people on Skype, whether doing a Skype-to-Skype call for free or calling any phone for very little cost.

With a focus on increased call quality, the new Skype introduces automatic call recovery, which helps users quickly reconnect calls that are interrupted due to Internet connection problems. Plus, a call quality manager gauges audio and video quality during calls, providing guidance on resolving problems and improving the call experience.
