Google Home users can call companies listed in Google Maps or somebody in Google Contacts with a single “OK Google, call whoever you want.” It also connects Google Contact’s link knowledge and Google Home’s multi-user support, enabling people to say something like “Call my mom” and hold the system correctly look up and dial the right person.
Calls are open to anyone in the US and Canada. For maximum people, international calls and premium numbers are not approved, and the recipient will see “Unknown” or “No Caller ID.” Subscribers to Google’s Project Fi MVNO setting or Google Voice products get a whole other experience, though: there’s an opportunity in the environments to have caller ID show your Google number, and general and 900 numbers can be billed to your account at the usual rate. For everyone else, Google states that “by the end of the year,” you’ll be capable to link any mobile number to the Google Home for caller ID. 911 calls aren’t approved, and it doesn’t seem like it can receive calls to your number.
Google has nearly made good on the Google Home guarantees it made at I/O in May. We’ve noticed it launch help for creating calendar events and multi-user support which can tell users alone just by their voice. But at the show, Google also agreed the ability to create reminders, a “proactive announcements” system, generic Bluetooth speaker abilities, and TV weather combination. So far, these features haven’t launched.
We haven’t seen telephone call support pop up on any of our Google Homes yet and that’s with all of them being obtained in the new beta firmware program.
