Google Duplex was first announced at the Google I/O developers conference in May 2018 by company CEO Sundar Pichai. He showed how the service worked with an AI-driven voice, which was designed to help people make appointments to businesses over the phone, but without any interaction from the user. Pichai’s demo showed the AI voice could not only understand the voice of the human on the other end of the call, but it could respond back with correct answers to that real person’s inquiries and questions as well. Google Duplex’s voice even put in words like “um” and pause breaks to make it sound even more like a real human.
The company later released a video showing how a user would tell Google Assistant to set up a restaurant reservation, and then it showed how the Google Duplex AI voice went into action, as it called the restaurant and interacted with the employee to get the reservation book. After the call was made, Google Assistant sent a notification to the original user stating the reservation was all set up.
In November of 2018, the company announced that Google Duplex was rolling out to a select number of public users in a few U.S. cities. Google put in a few changes to address the security concerns of some users. Those changes include the AI voice system starting the voice call by identifying itself as being from Google. It also tells the receiver of the call that it is being recorded. If the receiver says they don’t want to be recorded, Google Assistant then transfers that call to a non-recorded line
Where can you use Google Duplex?
Google Duplex was available first in Atlanta, New York, Phoenix, and the San Francisco metropolitan area in the fall of 2018. However, in early March 2019, the company expanded the use of Duplex to 43 states in the U.S.

Google has said that owners of its Google Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, and Pixel 3 and Google Pixel 3 XL phones can access Duplex. It is not currently available on any other Google Assistant-based devices, like the Google Home smart speaker. However, the company stated it does plan to roll out Google Duplex support to not only more Android-based devices but Apple’s iOS products in the very near future
What can you do with Google Duplex?
At the moment, the only thing that Pixel phones owners can do with Duplex is to make a reservation at a restaurant. In the future, the AI-based voice service could do a lot more, such as make reservations for your doctor’s appointment or set up a time and day to get your hair cut.
In a related feature, there’s also call screening. It’s not exactly Google Duplex, but it does use Google Assistant to interact with a call — making it obviously somewhat related
How to use Google Duplex to make a restaurant reservation
Assuming you own a Pixel phone, and you live in one of the few cities that supports Duplex, you can use it to make a restaurant reservation. Here’s how to use Google Duplex:
On your Pixel phone, activate Google Assistant by saying “Ok Google” or by tapping and holding down the Home icon.
Ask Google Assistant to make a breakfast, lunch or dinner reservation. That should be enough to trigger the Duplex service. Asking Assistant to just make a reservation may not be enough to activate Duplex.
Once you have found a restaurant that does accept Duplex calls, Google Assistant will ask you what day and time would you like to set up at your chosen eatery, along with how many people will be included. It will also ask you for an alternative time frame in case your first choice is not available.
Finally, you confirm with Assistant to let Duplex make the call to the restaurant.
Duplex’s AI voice should do all the rest, and after it finishes its call, Assistant should inform you within 15 minutes that your restaurant reservation is all set up. If Duplex can’t reach the restaurant, Assistant should inform you of that as well. If for some reason you can’t make it, you can ask Assistant to cancel, and Duplex should then call the restaurant back and tell them to cancel your reservation
How to use Google Duplex – Limitations

.Perhaps the biggest limitation at this early beta stage is that you cannot hear the recording of the Google Duplex calls that’s made on your behalf afterward, nor can you get a written transcript. There’s no word yet if Google will allow Duplex users to get that information in the future
Also, if you do decide to cancel a reservation, you cannot use Duplex to make another reservation at the same restaurant for at least a day. In fact, if you make reservations at several restaurants using Duplex, and then decide to cancel them, Google will disable your use of Duplex for an unspecified amount of time. Google says these limitations are to prevent Duplex from spamming restaurants with cancelation calls.
