The stakes for the best digital assistant were raised significantly by Google after it announced Duplex.
Rather than answering your questions about the weather, traffic conditions, or location of the nearest coffee shops – as the Assistant does currently – Google Duplex does something quite different: it makes phone calls and books appointments for you.
Did AI just became genuinely useful, or are things getting weird way too fast?
Does Google Duplex make phone calls?
Yes. And it seems to do it rather well.
Google Duplex is an extension to the Google Assistant app that you may currently have on your Android or iOS device. It allows you to ask the Assistant to arrange a simple task that will involve calling, for example, a store, salon, or restaurant. This could be for the purposes of making you an appointment or just finding out when the place will be open.
