How to make calls to a mobile from a speaker with the Google assistant


We explain how you can make free calls to any mobile from a Google assistant Home or Nest speaker with the Google assistant. While nothing compares to smartphones, a few categories of consumer electronics products have caused such a stir in recent years as smart speakers. These small devices allow us to listen to music, interact with other elements of our home or answer questions quickly.

Google assistant is one of the companies that is investing the most in this market, and it does so not only by renewing its products, but improving them with functions that many do not yet know about.

One of them is the possibility of making voice calls through the speakers, using the Google Duo service. And we already have it available in Spain.

How to make calls to mobiles from a Google Home

The first thing we have to make clear is that the calls we make will be to mobiles, but using a specific application, Google Duo. Many terminals have it pre-installed as standard but if not, we will have to download it. The phone number will be necessary to receive an SMS, although the calls will be free via Wifi. It is expected that soon you do not need to have a phone number to use Google Duo .

Once that is done on the mobile we have to register with our Gmail account, as well as configure it on our speakers. For this we must:

  • Open the Google Home app.
  • Click on Settings.
  • Let’s go to Voice and video calls.
  • Click on Voice and video applications.
  • We activate the speaker with which we want to make calls.

If we want to restrict that a loudspeaker allows this service we have to:

  • Open the Google Home app.
  • We click on the speaker that we want to use to call.
  • Click on the gear icon in the upper right corner.
  • We go to the More section and select Duo Call.
  • Click on Unlink Duo from this device.

Required voice commands

Obviously, the orders to the speakers will be by voice, so we will have to ask to call a person.

  • * OK Google, call Juan Pérez »

If we specify the contact well, the system will give us a list and we will have to say the full name of the person with whom we want to speak.

To finish we will also need a command, in this case:

  • OK Google assistant, end the call.
