You can make a voice call in three ways: (1) you can say “Hey Google, call XXX-XXX-XXXX.” In other words, you can speak the specific phone number you wish to call; (2) you can say “Hey Google, call [the name of the person].” To do this, the person you wish to call must be in your contacts on your smartphone; or (3) you can say “Hey Google, call (the name of the business, school, etc.].”
You cannot receive regular voice calls on your Lenovo Smart Display.
The person you wish to video call must have Google Duo installed on their smartphone. Almost all new Android smartphones have Google Duo pre-installed. iPhone users can install Google Duo from the App Store for free.
