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

What Duplex lets you do is to make reservations without actually talking to the restaurant you've chosen.

Once you have told the assistant what you want from the booking - the restaurant name, size of the party, and preferred date and time - the assistant makes the call on your behalf and completely without your involvement.

It remains to be seen whether the functionality will be appreciated and adopted by users. That said, Continued Conversation is available only to USA residents who have their Assistant languages set to English (United States).

I first spotted Continued Conversations on my Google Home Hub, and to no surprise, it works just like it does on other Assistant speakers. But Google made some progress since then, addressing concerns in the process.

Are you interested in using Duplex? Duplex can be used if users are planning to book with a restaurant that allows of online booking.

Meanwhile, the 43 states involved in Google's Duplex expansion are looking forward to the development since the system was only available to a limited number of cities before the expansion was announced. You can ask Google Assistant to book you a table at a restaurant. The assistant makes the phone call, and once the reservation is successful, you'll get a notification on your phone, an email update, and a calendar invite.

As for the states that where Duplex now isn't available - Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska and Texas - Google says that it is working with local and state laws to ensure that it bring the service to residents.
