Telecom Italia (TIM) said it has become the first Italian operator to offer landline customers the possibility of making and receiving phone calls via voice-controlled Google smart devices. After launching TIM Voice Smart for mobile numbers earlier this year, the operator has now extended the service to home landlines. Customers with a fibre connection simply have to connect their landline to a Google Nest Mini or Nest Hub to make and receive calls with a simple voice command such as "Hey Google, call mum" or "Hey Google, answer the call".
