Google Duplex, the impressive AI digital assistant, will become available to more people as the company opens it up to addition group of Pixel owners…
At the Google I/O conference back in May, the search engine unveiled its most impressive AI tool yet, called Google Duplex. For those unfamiliar, this is a digital assistant which makes phone calls, with a very convincing human voice. In fact, it immediately caused quite a bit of controversy because it sounds so real.

Google Duplex shook the world when the company debuted it in May. It not only sounds just like a regular human voice, it also paused and used “crutch words,” such as “uhm” and “ahh.” However, it didn’t alert the person receiving the call it was in fact, a robot. Now, that’s changed, as the search giant promised.
Google is making it available to more people, in-particular, Pixel owners. However, not everyone who owns the handset will have access.
Although, there’s still other catches. For instance, it’s only rolling out to a limited group of cities. These include: New York, Atlanta, Phoenix, and San Francisco. And, not all businesses are part of the program as there’s an opt-out.
But, for Pixel owners who live in one of the above listed markets, it’s possible to try it out. Venture Beat posted a brief demo video.
