Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg today announced video calling, powered by Skype.

The video functionality has been built it right into Facebook Chat, so all your conversations start from the same place. To call your friend, just click the video call button at the top of your chat window (though there is a one-time setup you will have to go through first).

Facebook is making this new feature available in over 70 different languages to everyone over the next few weeks. If you don’t want to wait until Facebook gives you video calling, you can get it now by going to facebook.com/videocalling.
