Vodafone UK customers can now make and receive calls via Amazon Echo devices from any of their contacts using their existing mobile phone plan.

By simply linking their mobile phone number to their Alexa account, customers with Vodafone OneNumber plan can enjoy hands-free calling – without needing to stop what they are doing and pick up the phone. Vodafone says the new service could be the replacement for landlines. 

Alexa calling with Vodafone OneNumber also gives customers peace of mind, meaning they can still keep in touch if they lose their smartphone or run out of battery. What’s more, if they need help they can call emergency service numbers directly through their Alexa speaker. Customers can decide which of their Echo devices will ring and they can turn inbound ringing on or off, any time they choose.

With Vodafone OneNumber, customers can share their mobile plan’s allowance of data, minutes and texts with multiple devices such as their Alexa or smartwatch. As Vodafone OneNumber can connect multiple devices, customers have both the freedom to use the device which is most useful to them at any given time.

Vodafone UK customers can now tap into their mobile call allowances, doing away with their landlines, and through an integrated address book make or receive calls over Alexa devices in the home.

Every day Alexa connects customers with the people who matter most to them and today we’re making it even easier to do that with the introduction of Alexa calling with Vodafone OneNumber.
