Part 1: Introducing Google Duplex: The Dedicated Google AI Assistant

Google’s CEO Sundar Pichai first announced the launch of Google Duplex at the Google I/O Developers Conference in May 2018. Duplex is an AI-based technology that assists users in making general appointments or reservations.

Google’s main aim with Duplex was to make AI interactions more lifelike. The AI can make calls and understand the receiver at the other end. Duplex can also insert pauses and filler words like “ums” and “ahs” in its conversations. This makes the interaction sound more natural. The core of Duplex can cater well to understanding and interacting with humans while maintaining a natural timing and speaking manner.

Devices Supporting Google Duplex

Duplex AI was first seen in Google’s Pixel phones. These included Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, Pixel 2XL, Pixel 3, and Pixel 3XL. The feature is now available on almost all smartphones, including Android and iOS. You only need the Google Assistant App and Google Search or Google Maps access.

Use Cases of Google Duplex

Google Duplex was launched as a conversational AI to speak on behalf of individuals. Duplex can imitate the speech patterns of real-world humans for human-to-computer interactions. Some use cases of Google Duplex include:

  • Booking Appointments: One of the main use cases of Google Duplex is booking appointments. You can provide details such as the type of service and your preferred time. Depending on your requirements, Duplex will book an appointment with a business, such as a restaurant or salon.
  • Checking Wait Times at Restaurants: Google can call restaurants to check for wait times. These calls use the automated voice-calling technology by Google. Google monitors and records the calls for quality assurance.
  • Reviewing Business Information: Duplex can check stores for in-demand items or inventory details. Google can also call businesses to obtain information about their business hours. This information can result in updates to the business profile on Google Search and Maps.

Hold For Me – A Flagship Feature of Google’s AI Assistant:

It is quite annoying when you call a business and are put on hold, usually for hours on end. Long waiting times in various businesses can take an eternity until a customer support representative finally picks up. Meanwhile, users are forced to listen to repetitive messages and music.

Luckily, Google’s AI assistant can take away some of this trouble. Using the “Hold For Me” feature, Google Assistant can wait in line on your behalf. You can continue with your everyday tasks during this time. When someone on the line is ready to talk to you, Google will notify you. You will see a prompt on the screen along with sounds and vibrations to let you know your turn.

This feature is available on Google’s Pixel 3 and later devices. For now, the “Hold For Me” service is only available in the US, Canada, and Australia. It is important to note that since the technology uses AI, it might sometimes fail to detect when the call is taken off hold. Audio from other apps is also turned off when the feature is active. Currently, the “Hold For Me” feature only works with toll-free numbers.

Part 3: Booking an Appointment with Google AI Assistant

Duplex by Google offers its services to make appointments on behalf of users. It can hold conversations that sound just like real humans. To book an appointment with Google Duplex AI, you can follow the steps below:

Step 1

Launch Google Assistant on your phone or smart display powered by Google. Then, ask the AI Google Assistant to set up the relevant appointment. You can say stuff like, "Book an appointment at Dorsia." If you provide vague instructions without naming a particular place, Google will provide you with a list of options.

Step 2

After you select the business, Google’s AI Assistant will inquire about the details, such as the date and time. After specifying the details, confirm the call and let Duplex do the rest. After Duplex makes the call, it will let you know whether the reservation was made or if the AI failed to reach the business.

While the process is relatively simple, it has some limitations. Google Duplex is not universally available. In addition to this, not every business supports calls from Duplex. It is primarily focused on specific use cases. The AI can also face challenges handling complex conversations as it lacks emotional intelligence.

Moreover, Duplex may face challenges in understanding and responding to diverse regional accents and dialects. The AI relies on an internet connection for its functionality. It also raises privacy concerns, especially when making calls on users' behalf.
