Google has announced that your can now make free voice calls with their Google Home device. The feature is now available to Google Home users in the US and Canada.
All you need to do to make a call is say ‘Hey Google, call … and a call will be made to the person of your choice over WiFi.
Hi, hello, hey, howdy … no matter how you start a call, your Google Assistant is ready to help! You can already ask your Assistant on your phone to make a call and soon, you’ll be able to do the same on Google Home—hands-free—in the U.S. and Canada. Call anyone (at their home, on their mobile or at their office). It’s easy to use, and it’s free.
Busy in the kitchen and in need of help? Just say “Hey Google, call Dad” to ask about that one ingredient you always seem to forget (salt? baking powder? who knows!). Because the Assistant on Google Home recognizes your voice, you’ll reach your dad instead of just any dad.
