BREAKING NEWS: Facebook’s “Awesome” Feature is Now Live

The long anticipated alliance between Facebook and Skype is finally bringing forth its fruit with the rolling out of Facebook Video Chat.

There are 3 new features that Facebook is now rolling out:

  • Group Chat
  • Video Calling
  • and new design

 

However, the most anticipated one is Video Calling. Even though Facebook is one step behind Google in terms of the release date, I’m looking forward to see how Facebook Video Calling is compared with Google+ Hangout.

If you are so eager to try this new feature, you can now go to http://www.facebook.com/videocalling to activate the new feature. If everything works like it normally does. You should see this screen below.

What do you think about Facebook’s latest move to compete with Google+? Do you think the mighty social media giant would triumph? I don’t know. Let’s give both Facebook and Google+ sometime to prove themselves. Meanwhile, we, as their customer, would gladly accept this new addition to our social media tools disposal.

If you enjoy this post, please like it on Facebook and share it with others. Thanks!

    The video chat feature isn’t as good as Google+’s, in my opinion. The quality of the video isn’t that great; I was never really too impressed with Skype’s quality compared to iChat’s video quality. I also like how Google Hangout has more than one video and it rotates who’s in the main seat depending on how the conversation is going. I’m definitely looking forward to see how Google develops this come public release.

    • I, too, favor Google+ Hangout more than Facebook video chat. I think FB is too late to introduce their video chat capability to the public. It would be fine if it is better than Google+, but the fact that Google+ Hangout would allow up to 10 people in video conference + video sharing (I think Google will expand this beyond Youtube only) + chat, FB video chat looks pale compared to Google+.

      I look forward to Google+ future update where it will integrate all Google’s services under Google+. Just imagine the possibility to have Google Cal, Docs, Music, etc. in Google+. It will surely kick FB’s ass LOL
