Non-Pixel Google Duplex support is now available on phones running Android 5.0 Lollipop or newer, along with iPhones, in the US…
Less than a month ago, we learned Google Duplex would be added to non-Pixel devices. It also expanded to work in forty-three more states in the US. Now, Google has quietly expanded its support to non-Pixel phones, as well as iOS devices.

The search giant first debuted Google Duplex at its I/O event in May of 2018. It initially ran in a very limited test, only available to Pixel phones, at first.
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.
The newest experience begins with various disclosures, alerting the person receiving the call they are interacting with a machine.
Although it’s not ubiquitous yet, this most certainly another step to make it more commonplace. Right now, it appears to work with the Samsung Galaxy S10 and iPhone, too.
