This also means that users can use the Google Assistant via a phone call. This service is available in Hindi and English for only Vodafone Idea users. However, Google is willing to partner with other telecom players (Reliance Jio, Airtel, and BSNL).

The company will initially run a pilot program in Lucknow and Kanpur, reports Indian Express. This initiative by the search giant will help a large number of people who are not highly educated to understand the internet and apps on phone.

Meanwhile, TRAI subscriber data reveals that Vodafone Idea is leading with 38 crore users in July, while Reliance Jio has 33.98 crores, and Airtel 32.85 crore users.

In fact, Vodafone Idea is also leading in the market share segment with 32.53 percent, while Reliance Jio has managed to garner 29.08 percent in July. Airtel has 28.12 percent. On the other hand, the state-run telecom operators BSNL and MTNL garnered 9.98 percent and 0.29 percent, respectively.
