Google Home now supports free wifi calling for UK users

If you own a Google Home, the smart device has just been updated to add support for free wifi calling to any number - including usually costly 0870 and other premium rate numbers. It appears to support every number except emergency calls on 999 and related emergency numbers.

We've given the new feature a quick test and it appears to work perfectly with nice clear audio at both ends of the call. There are some configuration options available via the Google Home app on your phone to enable Caller ID and to set up contacts.

Expect privacy groups to pop up any minute telling us that Google could be listening to all of our calls!
