Telecom Italia (TIM) has teamed up with Google to launch a new service called TIM Voice Smart, allowing customers to make calls through Google Home voice-controlled devices including smart speakers and Nest displays even if their phone is switched off or out of range. The operator has already activated a number of Google Home skills including customer service support and bill top-ups, with TIM customers now able to make calls to any landline or mobile number using the "OK Google, call…" voice command.
