  • Google and Target Release Voice-Activated Coupon

If WiFi calling is a feature that you've always wanted from Google Voice, you'll be pleased to learn that according to a post on the Google Voice Help Forum (via Droid-Life), it looks like the feature is now being tested which means that it will most likely be making its way onto compatible devices in the near future. As for iOS, Google says support is coming soon, but did not offer up a specific date.

Through the beta program, users can make calls over Wi-Fi on any compatible device that has Google Voice installed, or on the web.

Beta tests are for Android users and folks using Google Voice on the web.

The beta test is open now, so if you want to participate in the pre-release tests you can do so by filling out this form.

Unable to use earpiece mode when a Bluetooth device is paired.

Beyond those caveats, you're good to go, if this is something you have been waiting for. Also, there's a chance calls might get dropped when switching from Bluetooth and speakerphone.

Target and Google teamed up for a voice-activated coupon on Google Assistant, a first for the tech giant's digital assistant, according to Adweek. Firstly, Google says Obihai devices won't work with calls over Wi-Fi.

The above mentioned caveats are real bummers, but keep in mind that this is just a beta test, the goal of which is to help iron out the kinks and lead to a much more stable version of the feature. Support for Firefox, Safari and Edge coming soon!
