Social Hangouts Brings Group Video Chat to Facebook

A few weeks ago Facebook added video chat to the social networking site. But the move failed to create a splash because rival Google+ had launched just days before with group video chatting feature with up to 10 people. Facebook’s Skype powered video chat is just one-to-one.

Now a new Facebook app called Social Hangouts has stepped in to bring group video chat to Facebook. They have even upped the limit to 20 people. Take that Google.

Social-Hangout

In the developers’ own words:

Social Hangouts is a simple, easy to use application; you access the app without ever leaving Facebook, invite up to 20 of your contacts from your friends list and you could all be having a live video chat in no time! This might prove to be in Facebook’s favor, who to-date has managed to stay on top due to application and developers such as these and add to its arsenal against Google+.

Once you installed the app to your Facebook account, you can choose up to 20 friends from your friends list and invite them for over for a chat.

Of course, this is not an official Facebook app but I wouldn’t be surprised if Facebook starts endorsing it.
