FaceTime for Mac has just come out of beta and is now available in full release form for $0.99 in the Mac App Store. Originally pre-released during Apple's Back to the Mac event it's interesting to see it go on official sale right before the rumored MacBook Pro update which could occur as early as today -- with FaceTime HD being a rumored feature.

FaceTime for Mac makes it easy to talk, smile and laugh with friends and family on their iPhone 4, iPod touch or Mac. Getting started is quick and easy — simply enter your Apple ID and you're ready to go. Whether you're talking to someone on an iPhone or on another Mac, video calls with FaceTime look great. There's no better way to stay in touch with all your favorite faces.

Still no word on a Windows version but if you want to talk over FaceTime from your iPhone 4 or iPod touch 4 to your Mac using friends and family, you're good to go! Anyone try it out yet and notice anything different from the beta? Let us know!

UPDATE: Macworld says Apple has to charge something (hence $0.99) due to the way in which they account for their revenue (same thing happened with the 802.11n update a couple years ago). Our guess is it goes free with Lion...
