Google's Fiber Phone Bridges Home and Mobile Service
Google today announced the Fiber Phone, a home-phone service for its Google Fiber internet customers. The service includes unlimited nationwide calling, caller ID, voicemail, privacy controls, spam filtering, and do-not-disturb tools. Customers can keep their preexisting home phone number, use a Google Voice number, or switch to a new number. Fiber Phone can be set to ring mobile phones so users don't miss home calls, and will transcribe voicemails and send them to mobile devices via email or text. Fiber Phone costs $10 per month. Google is making it available slowly in markets where it already provides fiber home internet service.
