The North Pole, Earth —  Hello Santa? If you’ve always wanted to call Santa just for fun, this is the year that you can do it. And the call to the big guy at the North Pole is free.

“Hey Google, call Santa” is all you have to say on your phone using the Google Assistant or using the Google home device. After saying “Hey Google, call Santa” you should hear dialing sounds after which an elf will answer eventually transferring you to Santa.  

Santa answers while he’s in the middle of rehearsal for a holiday musical. You can’t ask for gifts or share a list. Santa upon answering will ask you questions to help him in creating a musical number to play for you.

After you answer the questions, Santa will speak with his Elf, and they will suggest a song for Santa to sing for you. You can read the lyrics on the phone while Santa sings them.

It is all quite fun and only takes a minute or two. There are no commercials, and you can call as often as you wish. Changing your answers to Santa’s questions gets you a different tune.
