Skype Functionality Comes to Vizio TVs

The company is also launching a $150 camera built just for the purpose.

Skype is an increasingly common feature on connected TVs, allowing people to connect with one another through calls or video chat on the big screen. Vizio is the latest maker to announce a Skype app - a feature which is live now.

The app is free, but to use it you'll need the Vizio Internet Apps TV Video Camera which will run you $150 directly from Vizio. The company says that most of its connected TVs will be compatible, but not all. They've created a handy search if you have any question about whether yours will work or not.
