You knew it was coming and if sources interviewed by TechCrunch are to be believed, the Video Chat service might be unveiled at an event planned by Facebook next week in Seattle. Considering Microsoft’s acquisition of Skype and its stake in Facebook($270 Million invested in the year 2007) , it would come at no surprise that a logical extension of Facebook Chat was in the works.

To add fuel to fire you can also see the chat icons that are present on the invites shown above, from which we can conclude that something related to chat might be unveiled by big Zuck. Although the service would be an in-browser affair , TechCrunch also reports that a desktop counterpart might also be unveiled. So are you ready to Skype on Facebook ?
