Google UK recently made a tweet using it’s Google UK Twitter handle stating that there will be a new update coming to all Google Home UK devices which allows you to make hands-free calls to a UK landline or mobile phone for free.

This is certainly a good news for most people in the UK who owns a Google Home or a Google Home Mini.
If you compare Google Home with Alexa’s Echo devices, Google Home is definitely the obvious option to buy in the UK right now as it is much cheaper and at the same time Alexa’s Echo devices does not come with this free landline and mobile phone calls. At the moment, Alexa’s Echo devices only supports messaging and calling to other Echo devices and calls through the Alexa app.
In other words, if you are having trouble deciding which powerful voice assistant speaker to buy in the UK considering that you have not got one, we are going to ask you to stick with either the Google Home or Google Home Mini.
