Here, we have another AI project launched by Google. It is a new project and an Upgrade version of Google Assistant.
In this article, we will go on what Google Duplex is? where it is available? which devices support this feature? some live examples, and what it’s future in India?
What is Google Duplex?
Google Duplex is an Artificial Intelligence-based system. It was announced in May 2018 by Google I/O Developers. This is designed to talk to the individual user without letting them know that an AI system is talking to him.
It can talk in the same way that we humans do. We talk, like while talking to another one we use some different signs of language like Hmmm, ooooh, Hahaha, etc. If a new user talks to this system, it will feel like they are talking to any person, not an assistant. Because it will react the same sign of language that humans do.
Google Duplex can make appointments for any person, organization, or business with the help of a smartphone. When we ask any question to our assistant. The assistant replies only for one time, but Duplex can reply more than one time, like a conversation.
Google has practiced and released some videos and audios that how duplex booked a reservation for a user.
Where Google Duplex is available?
Well, this system is still developing by Google I/O developers. It is available in some states. Currently, It is available in 48 states in the US. Only seven states are remaining in the country US. Google has not given an update about duplex outside the US (India). It does not support in India currently, but trying to implement it in India. It will make a better future in India.
How To Use Google Duplex?
If you want to use Google Duplex, You can start by just saying “Hey Google”, “Ok Google” or long-press the Home button to make any reservation.
So, to make any reservation, you need to say to your assistant “Make me a reservation at” followed by the restaurant, hotel name.
After these all, Google will ask you to provide some details like day, time, place, party size, etc. Then Tap confirm.
Google Assistant will then confirm your bookings or reservation on the basis that you had given details. The Assistant will call the restaurant and it will book for you.
