Google on Tuesday 27th December 2016 unveiled a new landline telephone service aimed at helping consumers stay connected in the Internet cloud.
The new Fiber Phone service will be made available to a few US markets and later expanded to other cities where Google offers high-speed Internet. The service will provide unlimited local and nationwide calls for $10 per month (around Rs 660).
The new service adds a few high-tech features to the landline, such as transcribing voice mails and delivering them as written messages, and connecting with mobile phones when consumers are away.
“While mobile phones have pushed us toward the future, home phone service is still important to many families,” Google’s John Shriver-Blake said in a blog post.
