iPhone 4: Facetime and Skype? – Wait and See

Following on from the unveiling of Apple’s new Facetime service on the iPhone 4 handset, it has been reported that a number of major online chat providers are interested in the new open-standard technology, but none are yet to commit to using it within their own services yet.

As reported from Apple Insider, Skype has been confirmed as one of the services which may use Facetime in the future – although the company are keen to see how the technology develops first before making any decisions on it.

A spokesperson for Skype had this this to say on Apple’s new video chat service: “Just to be clear, we are not considering FaceTime as a technological platform for video calling in our own products. Based on Apple’s statement about FaceTime being open platform, we are looking forward to see how this process unfolds.”

Don’t forget that Skype and Apple already work together for the mobile version of the Skype app, so it seems that there is no rush to get the ball rolling with Facetime yet.

We can’t wait until June 24th to see what you guys think of the new service. Would you like to see Facetime integrated into Skype or not?
