All this can be done with voice commands, using the same telephone number and rate that you have contracted on your smartphone.

In addition, to use this function it will not be necessary to pair the phone to the speaker via Bluetooth, which gives greater freedom of movement and makes the process easier.
For the users, the experience will be the same as when they perform a mobile call, with all associated services, with the exception of emergency calls, available. These emergency calls are the only feature that is not available when making or receiving calls through Alexa with this OneNumber service. It will be able to be activated from the Alexa app on the phone, where the Vodafone number can be added.
From today, users in Spain who are Vodafone OneNumber customers will be able to share their mobile line with Amazon Echo devices. The price of Vodafone OneNumber with Alexa is 1 euro per month, although on the occasion of its launch, the operator has confirmed that customers will be able to enjoy this service for free until December 31, 2020.
