dWeb.News Article from Daniel Webster dWeb.News

BASKING RIDGE, N.J. – Starting today, Verizon customers can get Number Share – Home, a new feature that allows customers to make and receive hands-free audio calls through their supported Amazon Alexa-enabled devices, such as Echo, Echo Dot, and Echo Show. Customers who sign up for Number Share-Home and buy an Alexa-enabled Verizon device will get three months free. Number Share – Home is a convenient tool for Verizon customers that allows them to make phone calls using their smart speakers. This gives them another option to ensure they have the right tech for their needs.

Number Share – Home reinvents what it means to have a home phone.

Convenience is a common thread for today’s diverse households. Single families, multi-generational families, empty nesters, individuals and even work-from-home professionals benefit by using Number Share – Home to complement their unique needs and make their lives easier:

Hands-free calling means you can make calls even when your phone is out of reach, turned off, or out of battery.

Call your contacts by name or dial numbers hands-free by saying “Alexa, call Daniel” or “Alexa, dial XXX-XXX-XXXX” to place a call.

When receiving calls, Alexa will tell you who is calling by saying, “Michael would like to talk to Emma.” To start your conversation, just say “Alexa, answer.”

Safety is paramount. Once your account is linked, say “Alexa, call 911” to place calls to emergency services1 or ask Alexa to call an emergency contact.

Caller ID displays your phone number. Your Verizon mobile number will be displayed on the receiving device even though it was placed using an Alexa-enabled phone.

You can stop incoming calls on your Alexa-enabled devices when you’re away from home by setting up Alexa Routines. To disable Verizon calls from your supported devices, create Routines in Alexa. This will allow you to say “Alexa, leave home” or at specific times such as 9 AM to 5 pm each weekday. To control when your Alexa-enabled devices receive calls, you can turn off or on Do Not Disturb mode.

Live calls can be moved from your Alexa-enabled device to your Verizon-distributed Android mobile phone at any time.
