How Microsoft plans to fix its mistake- Facebook-to-Facebook Skype call features?

Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) missed that chance to buy Facebook few years back so do Aol (NYSE: AOL) and Yahoo! (NASDAQ: YHOO) but Microsoft started to rectify it by Facebook-to-Facebook Skype call features. Now, SKYPE is to allow users make video calls to their Facebook friends and receive them, too released today in a “beta” test version of Skype’s software for Macs and PCs, expands on an existing partnership between the companies.

Skype was bought by Microsoft Corp for $8.5 billion earlier this year. Microsoft owns a small stake in Facebook.  Skype recently launched Skype 5.4 Beta for Mac and Skype 5.7 Beta for Windows. With this update, the VoIP giant allows one to have a Facebook-to-Facebook call within Skype, itself.

Jonathan Rosenberg, Skype’s chief technology strategist, said the company wants to help a billion people communicate, particularly with video. Working with Facebook “is really taking us a big step closer to that goal,” he said.
