Google Home AI Smart Hub To Gain Hands-Free Calling In The U.S.
At first, calls made from the Google Home device will be reported as a private number, but Google has plans in place that will allow users to link their mobile number to Google Assistant. Once linked, that mobile number will show up on the recipient’s caller ID. The hand-free calling feature will also sync contacts with multiple users. Once granted permission and set up, multiple sets of contacts can be synced, and the Google Home device can distinguish one voice from another and call the proper contact.
Hand’s free calling from the Google Home AI hub will initially be available to customers in the United States when the update hits, but calls can be made to locations in the U.S. or Canada. No word yet on when Google plans to roll the feature out to other regions.
