We look forward to continue to connect with our customers and will be hosting our next Aspire event in Australia at the end of May and then one in New York during mid-June. As part of our overall strategy, we continue to evolve our core chat products. We are in the process of launching a new connection framework that combines chat with full integration of voice, video, screen sharing and even real-time language translation.
