In a report by the Wallstreet Journal both Google and Amazon are actively working on integrating phone capabilities into their popular devices. For many, a home phone is a thing of the past, having been replaced by multiple cell phones. Having the house phone integrated into our Google home would be a nice feature for us because it would allow our younger kids to call their grandparents and cousins.
Google already has the groundwork lain for this service via google voice. If you didn’t already know, you can use almost any old Android phone as a free home phone. I am currently working on an Article about how to set this up, so that you can cancel your home phone service and use this free option instead. Keep checking back or follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Google +.
