I understand that Telus/Koodo will be integrating with Google Home so we can check our account information, send texts, make calls, etc. Supposedly it is happening this month for Koodo. Anyone know when this is going to be announced? If you have info already, please share, Thanks.

Afraid not. We have no news about it for now. Koodo will announce it here and elsewhere when it's ready for launch though.

Late April is what we are looking at given the back and forth with Google taking longer that originally anticipated.

Would be nice to have this enabled for Siri on iPhone and HomePods

Apple environment is too restrictive at this point for easy updates/changes. Google Assistant can be downloaded on iPhones as well which is an easier way to solve the problem. :-) However our own virtual assistant is going to be the best for all users with Koodo as it will have more bells and whistles. i.e. authentication for deeper level personal info, ability to have a rep call you back etc.

The lawyers are taking longer than anyone anticipated. Until the agreement is signed and delivered we can't implement. I don't want to provide false hopes again so let me just say that we are close but not quite there yet. :-(

Same here Michael. :-( I'm being told we are close to finalize the agreement papers. Finger crossing it will happen this month. Then again, I promised something like that before, so don't wan to be the cause of disappointment if it gets pushed out. :-(
