Dear Jarkko,

Godfather of IRC, WiZ! We seek your advice. As one of Founding Fathers of Internet, we would appreciate if you get in touch with us. We are a small startup, who is trying to bring back IRC, from the ashes and find its place in the modern way of communication. We believe that you are still passionate and proud about what you have once created.

You once said - "It does not necessarily require a large team to make significant progress. Just one person can make a huge difference" Its five of us, but we need your help...

We really hope that you will see this and scratch a note to team@cuckoo.chat

Sincerely yours,
Your fanboys

Phone calling is now available in all hangouts!
 
Graduating another extra: making phone calls from inside Hangouts

In the past few months, we’ve graduated two widely-used features from Hangouts with extras to the main Hangouts experience: screensharing and Google Docs. Today, we’re excited to announce that we’re graduating a third and very popular feature -- the ability to call a phone number from Hangouts. Calls to the US and Canada are free, and international calling rates are super, super low (www.goo.gl/TWv2L)

To dial in someone:
- When you’re in a hangout, click on the “Invite” button and then on the “+telephone” link.
- Enter the number you want to dial, and hit “Add.” (Note: You can only call one number at a time. Dialing a second phone number will replace the existing call.)

As always, let us know what you think in the comments, or via the “Send feedback” button!
