Google Duplex to soon be made Available for Web!

Mountain View, Calif. is the home to Google’s annual developer conference, I/O. Last year during the event, the Tech Giant gave a demonstration of Duplex, an Artificial Intelligence Assistant. The assistant can perform simple tasks for you, such as make reservations on your behalf via phone.

However, this year’s Google I/O featured Google CEO Sundar Pichai announcing that the Tech Giant is working on introducing Duplex to Web.

It should be noted that as of this moment, Duplex is up and running in 44 states. Now, its scope will be expanded beyond the phone and voice to the web. According to Pichai, the web version will initially take care of simple tasks such as car bookings and movie ticketing but with time, its focus will shift to more broad use cases.


As an example, consider that you have a business trip planned out on a date which is closely approaching. Once you get a calendar reminder about it, you can simply request Google to book a car for your trip. This is where Duplex will come into play, as it will open a car rental company’s website, fill in all the required details on your behalf and ask you to verify the details before they can be submitted.

However, this is just the tip of the iceberg and Pichai assured everyone that more details about the web version of Duplex will be revealed over the next few months.
