How to make phone calls with Google Home

Googles smart speaker can now pull double duty as a phone for voice calls. The company just confirmed that its rolling out Google Homes calling feature in the US and Canada beginning today. Users can dial anyone in their contacts and local businesses for free so long as the call recipient is in one of those two countries. The calling feature was first announced back in May.
In turning its speaker into a phone, Google is taking another step to challenge Amazon and its Echo devices, which introduced calling and messaging features earlier this year. But the two companies take a significantly different approach in how the feature actually works and who youre able to communicate with.
