Google has announced a handful of new features for Google Assistant, including the ability to find iPhones using a Nest device and faster takeout orders on the web, thanks to Duplex technology.
Google Duplex has now made its way to other countries including the U.K., Canada, and Australia. The conversational artificial intelligence was previously available only in the U.S. and New Zealand.
Google has announced that Duplex on Google Assistant can now place orders for movie tickets. Just ask Assistant for a movie and Duplex will handle the ticket purchasing process automatically.
Google's slow rollout of the Duplex-based restaurant booking capabilities has reached a new milestone. It's now available for all Pixel devices across 43 states in the United States.
Google has started rolling out is restaurant-booking Duplex feature to more Google Pixel users. Duplex can only make reservations at restaurants in select cities right now but Google will expand this.
Google Assistant will be able to talk to other real humans at your behest starting next month in the form of Duplex, the service the company announced at I/O earlier this year in May.
Google Duplex is a technology capable of carrying out human-like conversations for specific tasks. Its first audio demos are staggering and the company will soon integrate it into Assistant.
