Today was the day that Facebook was supposed to make their announcement about the “something awesome” which CEO Mark Zuckerburg teased about. We later found out it had to do with adding a video chat feature.
Did the announcement happen? It sure did – via their Facebook blog!
Facebook has introduced video calling, as well as other improvements to their chat. Here’s a breakdown of the new features:
- See The Friends You Message Most – A list of friends you chat with the most
- Create a Group Chat Instantly – Multi-person chat. Simple to use – just add more people to the chat
- Bring Your Conversations to Life – Facebook teamed up with Skype to create a video chat feature. To call your friend, just click on the button at the top of the chat window
Check out this video Facebook put together which shows you what the video chat looks like.
What do you think? Will you use these features?
