How to restore call phone button in Gmail

At some point a button to call phones disappeared from from my GMail. With that nice new "Hangout" I can video call to another computer but not the phone numbers. After spending some time googling (that's the Google support for you) I found a solution:

New "Hangout" removes that functionality for you. Switch back to old ugly Google Chat and you have "call phone" button again.
On the left side of GMail there is a list of your Hangout contacts. Click down arrow next to you image there and select "Revert to old chat".

Some guy even put a video explanation:
