This would be extremely useful, especially for in-vehicle use cases. 'Alexa, tell <my app> to dial into the conference call'
Marco Tibaldeschi commented
Yes, that would enable a lot of interesting scenarios!
That'll be very useful!! Please add this feature

I would like a skill that would provide a list of objects via audio, and at the end, if the user is happy with these objects, the skill offers the option to make a voice call to me.
I would have this feature to develop skill where friends in a given app could launch a discussion about a given subject.

I would like to make a skill that would repeat making a phone call. For example if the call was busy or no answer you'd set the skill to hang up in a specific time and then call again and if the call was answered there would be a command to not hang up. Any ideas if this could be done

I would like to be able to place a call from within a skill, where the consumer can say, "call customer service" and have the number not be known to the consumer.

I need this feature to connect people with their legislators.
I think it would be nice if i could trigger a call directly from my skill if the user need more information !

Would love to see Alexa be able to call a number or do a drop in via the lambda function....
Is this under radar of Alexa team. It would be great to get this feature.
