where people within Google circle network can

host a call. This project has two related goals:

1. To understand and explore new protocols

for increasing the efficiency and quality of

calls based on VoIP protocol

Similarly an increasing number of people are

spending their time on social media. Therefore

an ability to host meetings seamlessly from a

social media platform with VoIP technology is

gaining popularity. This would allow people
