Google Duplex arrives on iPhones, most Android devices

However, it has been confirmed that Google Duplex will be a feature on iOS and all Android devices running Lollipop or above in the U.S.

Google Duplex is now arriving on non-Pixel Android devices and iPhones with the Google Assistant app installed. The extent to which Google's digital assistant sounded like a real human was unreal. However, Android Q Beta 1 changed things by limiting users to right to left to dismiss the alert.

For now, it can only handle reservations at restaurants.

Duplex Assistant is compatible with restaurants with no online presence. It's still limited to the USA, but instead of being only on Google Pixel phones it's now available on other devices - according to XDA developers it's definitely on the Galaxy S10 series but according to other sources, it's available on phones running version 5.0 or later.

Android Q Beta 2 brings Scoped Storage for new app installs, enabling apps to use a private sandbox without permission, but requiring them to get permission for access to shared collections. Instead of continuing to sell the two models, Google outright discontinued them, but that might also mean the company is getting ready to introduce new products in the near future.

When Is The Roll Out?

Until today, the feature was exclusively available on Google's Pixel smartphones. This is the first time the Google Assistant app has supported Duplex, with the feature having been an Android-only affair until now. Duplex also does an incredible job of understanding the real human on the other line, and it nearly seems like a full generation ahead of the voice technology now in the Google Assistant or Siri.
