Google's smart speakers can now answer incoming phone calls, but probably not where you live

Google Assistant-enabled smart speakers have been able to make calls for a while now in countries like Australia, Canada, and the US. But the functionality was limited to outbound calls placed from the speaker itself. Now it looks like inbound call support is coming to Google's smart home products, but only on a single carrier in Australia.

Get a Pixel 4a for as little as $216 with Google Fi's new subscription program

Get a Pixel 4a for as little as $216 with Google Fi's new subscription program

Google Fi has just launched a phone subscription plan that is actually a pretty sweet deal. For $15 a month over two years, you can get a Pixel 4a plus a device protection insurance plan. That works out to just $10 more than the current unlocked retail price, plus theft and accidental damage protection. In two years, your phone is paid off and yours to keep, but you can also keep paying that monthly fee to upgrade to a new device. But there's also an even better deal available. If you don't care about insurance, the subscription is $9 a month — that's just $216 over the two years requried and way less than $350 up-front and unlocked price.

Verizon starts rolling out support for its low-band 5G to some phones

Verizon may be pushing its 5G mmWave network hard (even if it's of doubtful utility), but it's not actually the only 5G tech on big red's roadmap. Like T-Mobile, it's pushing a lower-band "Nationwide" solution as well, and an update will soon be rolling out to select 5G phones delivering access to that more far-reaching network. Furthermore, new 5G phones on Verizon will have it at launch.

The Motorola One 5G UW is the latest Verizon phone with an inflated price thanks to mmWave

The Motorola One 5G UW is the latest Verizon phone with an inflated price thanks to mmWave

Earlier this year, Motorola launched the Motorola One 5G internationally, and we all thought it looked like a nifty phone that we'd like to see in the US. Motorola obliged and even said it would offer the device for under $500. The AT&T version launched some weeks back for $444.99, but Verizon isn't bound by Moto's promise. Big Red just unveiled the Motorola One 5G UW, and wouldn't you know it, it's priced at $550.
