Telefonica offering 'Movistar Home' voice-controlled hub for EUR 49

Friday 5 October 2018 | 10:07 CET | News
Telefonica has begun taking orders for its voice-controlled "Movistar Home" physical hub, which will be available from 15 November at a cost of EUR 49 for the first 5,000 units. The consumer device unveiled at Mobile World Congress earlier this year has a large 8-inch screen that's designed to act as the hub for services integrated with the company's 'Aura' voice-activated assistant. Telefonica described Movistar Home as the evolution of the traditional fixed phone, acting as a second screen for users to make voice and video calls that can be projected on to the TV.
