Google Duplex is Now Live in 43 States

Google Duplex is Now Live in 43 States

Google Duplex, which was the hit of the Google I/O event previous year, allows a phone user to use the voice agent to tell it to book a table at a certain restaurant.

At the time of this writing, the Google Home support page regarding Continued Conversation doesn't list the Home Hub just yet, but the company has already confirmed to Android Central that the feature is making its way to all Smart Displays.

Google Duplex is an unbelievable system that lets an artificial intelligence place phone calls and makes reservations at restaurants.

It remains to be seen when support will go live in the remainder of the non-supported states as it's possible local regulations may prohibit the use of a feature like this for various reasons. But Google made some progress since then, addressing concerns in the process. In most U.S. states, the Google Assistant can now help you out with that. 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.

Victoria's Secret store closures planned in Canada, U.S.
Gap announced the closure of 230 stores in a news release that projected the locations to shut down over the next two years. In recent years, sales have slipped and the brand has struggeld to resonate with shifting consumer demands.

CNBC recently tried Duplex to book a table at a restaurant in New Jersey and it worked perfectly.

Although Duplex can only make restaurant reservations for now, Google's first demo of the technology, back in June 2018, showed how it could also be used to make an appointment at a hair salon. Google also offers businesses an option to opt-out of the AI-powered calls. You can ask Google Assistant to book you a table at a restaurant. All you need is to wait for the notification of a successful booking either on your phone, in your email, or directly in your Google calendar even.

It should start rolling out over the next few days to users in the United States.
