BT has launched a new touch screen home phone that includes access to app store Google Play.

The Home SmartPhone SII is said to provide "easy access" to a wide range of social media, games and "a raft of useful applications".

BT claimed the "stylish handset" gives customers another connected device around the home so that all of the family can get online instantly.

"Customers will be able to link up to their home Wi-Fi and keep themselves up to date and entertained with Twitter, YouTube and Tune-In Radio," BT explained.

"It’s also easy to call straight from selected numbers on websites, saving the need for dialling or jotting numbers down."

The Home SmartPhone SII comes with a 2GB expandable memory, front-facing camera, answerphone and hands-free capability.

It has a range of up to 50m indoors and 300m outdoors, with the capacity to store up to 1,500 contacts.

The phone offers BT’s Nuisance Call Blocking technology, which allows users to block up to 80 per cent of unwanted calls, and a 'Do Not Disturb' feature.

Erik Raphael, Director of Wi-Fi and Devices at BT, said the firm is "extremely pleased" to be adding Google Play to its Home SmartPhone SII, which opens up access to "the biggest app store available".

"The home smartphone provides an excellent solution for getting everyone in the family online whenever they need access," he stated.

"The Home SmartPhone SII makes the home phone central to family life again, allowing you to look up numbers online and communicate with friends and family via email, Facebook or calls."
