Google becomes the first tech firm to offer free calls to UK mobile and landline numbers through its Home smart speaker. The feature was initially announced in 2017 and was launched in the US in August last year.
The feature allows Google Home and Home Mini smart speakers users to place calls to ordinary UK number using their WiFi connection. Google Assistant has been powered to call any number in users’ Google Contacts, as well as millions of business. By saying, Ok Google, call (recipient name), Google Assistant will place the call. Users will also be able to set up a caller ID for their Home voice calls to make their mobile phone number if they wish.
Google is going head to head against Amazon and Apple in a battle for voice control in the Home. The three giant tech companies are betting on voice being the future of computer interaction and continuously invest in providing customers with improved features and value-added services as they fight to entice more consumers.
