Google is beta testing Wi-Fi Calling for Google Voice

On the Google Voice Help Forum, Google's announced that it's running an open beta for Wi-Fi/data calling that's integrated directly into Google Voice.

We don't always focus our attention on Google Voice but that feature has been around for some time now. Wi-Fi calling now supports Android and web, with iOS support coming soon, Google said.

Google and Target have released a voice-activated coupon, a first using Google Assistant. Just recently, call recording was updated to work again while an update delivered web calling and deleting conversations among others.

Google has green-lit a beta test for Wi-Fi Calling in Google Voice.

If you're a loyal Google Voice user, feel free to register your account now for beta access. It could also mean that what you see in the current build might not necessarily make it into the final build, something to take into consideration.

Calls use approximately 0.2MB of data per minute, although this may vary - depending on the bandwidth available and network quality.

If you still use Google Voice, the service is getting a new feature soon, and Google is now in the process of beta testing it.

You can now control the Nest Secure alarm system using Google Assistant.
