Need a Reservation? Google Duplex Can Do It in 43 States

Need a Reservation? Google Duplex Can Do It in 43 States

AndroidPolice spotted that the support page still instructs owners to find a walk-in fix location, but the support page states that Google now accepts the two phones for fix.

Google Duplex, which was the hit of the Google I/O event a year ago, allows a phone user to use the voice agent to tell it to book a table at a certain restaurant. What Duplex lets you do is to make reservations without actually talking to the restaurant you've chosen.

Google Duplex is really exciting, particularly for busy people who don't have a personal assistant. You can see the full list of supported states by clicking the following link.

Since then Google has been working on those concerns.

Weather forecast: United Kingdom braced for 13 inches of snow
Sunday is going to be another "very cold day", with a mix of sunny spells and wintry showers of rain, hail, sleet and snow. According to Met Éireann, Saturday is going to start off "mostly cloudy" as showers moving eastwards across the country.

Until today, Google had limited Duplex to its own Pixel devices but now, it's expanding the tech to iOS devices as well.

The Google Assistant will call restaurants and salons to make reservations on your behalf. In case you are not familiar with Duplex, it is an AI which sounds like a human and it can call a restaurant and reserve a table for you!

For users interested in getting started with the restaurant-booking AI feature, simply ask the Google Assistant book a table somewhere. "Once your reservation is successfully made, you'll receive a notification on your phone, an email update and a calendar invite so you don't forget". For example, the AI now declares to the person that it is an automated system and that the calls are being recorded before attempting to make the requested reservation.

The feature is only available to Pixel phone users right now, but will roll out to the iPhone and other Android devices in the "next few weeks", according to a blog post from Scott Huffman, vice president of engineering for Google Assistant.
