Skype to get Deep Facebook Integration in Version 5

Skype is rumoured to be heavily integrating Facebook features in to the next version of Skype. The information reveals that Facebook Connect could be pushed in to version 5. It will allow users to log on to Skype via their Facebook username and password.

By doing this, you’ll get all your Facebook contacts in your Skype list. You will then be able to SMS, voice or video call your Facebook contacts.

This, for both companies looks to be a good thing as there are many Facebook users that could start using Skype, and for Facebook it provides another method for users to contact each other.

It isn’t clear when version 5 will be launched. We currently do have Skype 5 beta which enabled 10 way video calling, but when this is finalised, it isn’t known.
