Stay connected and get things done with Hands-Free Calling on Google Home.
Who can I call?With just your voice, you can call phone numbers in the U.S. or Canada. Call millions of businesses, thanks to built-in Google Search, or your own personal contacts. For example, “Hey Google, call Bob’s Pizza,” or “Hey Google, call mom.”
Note: Calls to 911 or 1-900 numbers are not supported on Google Home.
If there’s more than one person in my home, can we each call our contacts?Yep! Multiple people can connect to one Google Home and call their own personal contacts. With your permission, Google Home can distinguish your voice from others in your home, when you say “Call mom,” we’ll call your mom. Here's how to set up multiple users on Google Home. Note: This feature is only available in the U.S.
How much will calls cost?Calls to the U.S. and Canada are free. If you are signed into Google Voice or Project Fi, you can call internationally using Project Fi or Google Voice credits. Note: Google Voice and Project Fi are only available in the U.S.
In what countries will it be available?Hands-Free Calling will be available in the U.S.and Canada soon.
Will it show my phone number when I place a call?At first, we will support calling out with a private number. If you have Google Voice or Project Fi, you can use your Google Voice or Project Fi number. Later, we will also have the option to link your mobile number to the Google Assistant, and we’ll use that number whenever we recognize your voice. So whoever you call will know it is coming from you.
How does Google Home know my contacts?Google Home can place calls to your Google Contacts. If you use iOS, double check that your contacts are synced with your Google Account.
