The news was confirmed by Skype’s consumer boss Neil Stevens as the next thing planned for the partnership between two of the world’s most identifiable tech names.
If one of your Facebook friends is online and has their phone number listed, you’ll be capable of call their handset in the same way that you would begin a text chat.
Just like when using your usual Skype app, voice calls to mobile phones will be charged, but it is not yet clear whether members can use Facebook or Skype credit for the service.
The exposure isn’t accurately ground-breaking as Skype has been offering this service forever, and Google Voice offers cheap worldwide calls during the web browser and smartphone apps.
However, according to Business Insider, users will also be able to create inter-client calls between Facebook and Skype in the future.
Facebook engineer, Philip Su, who worked on the video chat feature, told the publication that Facebook-to-Skype calls would be the next logical step for the partnership.
Earlier on Wednesday Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg unveiled the link-up between the two companies, which will permit users to video chat using the social networking site.
