Verizon announces you can use your phone number on Alexa, but it’ll cost you

Verizon introduces a new feature called “Number Share – Home” which allows for Verizon subscribers to pair their phone number up with an Alexa-enabled speaker. The carrier implies the feature is like a reinvention of the home phone and calls placed will show a Verizon number on the recipient’s caller ID.

You’ll be able to use Alexa to dial your contacts either by name or by phone number. When a call is incoming, Alexa will tell you something along the lines of “Maria would like to talk to Chris”. You’ll be able to make or receive calls even if your smartphone is offline.

For those…

Very interesting. Check out our latest tone…
