ICQ 7 Now Supports Facebook Chat

ICQ, who recently announced stream updates through Facebook Connect, has now gone the extra mile and integrated Facebook Chat into its client. This means that you can login to Facebook from within ICQ, and then see all your friends that are online, and then instant message chat with them.

This is cool little feature that makes ICQ all the more useful to people who have been finding it again after all this time. In our previous coverage, we talked about its UI and effectiveness as a chat program in an instant messaging world that has changed dramatically, but one of the drawbacks at that time was the fact that you could only read Facebook news feeds and status updates, and not actually chat.

Well that has been solved now, so go give it a shot and let us know what you think in the comments section. Screenshots are below.
