Google wants to kill your phone

Mike Elgan | July 3, 2017
Every smartphone is both a phone and a computer. Google is working to get rid of the phone part.

It will give customers bleeding edge telephony, including high-quality VoLTE calls provisioned by multiple carriers; WiFi-based calls — and the ability to seamlessly switch back-and-forth between them; and RCS, unlimited data plans, global roaming and more.

Eventually, Project Fi phones will lack only one thing -- the ability to connect to a mobile voice network.

Smartphones won't be "phones" and "computers." They will only be "computers." And all communication between them will travel over the internet.

The implications are vast -- improved quality, security and programmability for all business communication.

Yes, Google is out to kill the phone -- and replace it with something much better.
