How it Works
According to the Cha-Cha website, you can ask anything; check out some examples of questions and answers sorted by category.
You don’t need an account to use Cha-Cha; however if you choose to create one and register your mobile phone, all of your questions and answers will be saved in your account. To learn much more, read Cha Cha’s FAQ page.
If you are interested in learning who invented the printing press, try calling Cha-Cha; you should learn that Johannes Gutenberg created his printing press in 1440. However, to learn a bit more about the history of moveable type, you’ll need to find other resources and do some reading (Cha-Cha’s answers can only contain 160 characters).
