Google’s smart speakers can now answer incoming phone calls
Google Assistant-enabled smart speakers have been able to make calls for a while now in countries like Australia, Canada, and the US.
But the functionality was limited to outbound calls placed from the speaker itself. Now it looks like inbound call support is coming to Google’s smart home products, but only on a single carrier in Australia.
Telstra customers in Australia are being notified that they can now receive inbound calls on Google Assistant speakers and smart displays linked to their mobile number.
