Google Home gets free phone calls in the US and Canada
At I/O 2017, Google promised that Google Home would get the ability to make phone calls. Today, the feature is rolling out to users in the US and Canada. Google Home users can call businesses listed in Google Maps or people in Google Contacts with a simple "OK Google, call [whoever]." It also combines Google Contact's relationship knowledge and Google Home's multi-user support, allowing people to say something like "Call my mom" and have the system accurately look up and dial the right person.
