Google had announced that its new Duplex feature would be distributed among Pixel-line phone users in 43 of the United States at the start of March 2019. This service uses the Mountain View giant's AI and audio processing neural network to hold entire conversations with humans. Its main stated use-case is to secure bookings or reservations for a device's owner so they don't have to. This seems like a particularly living-in-the-future level of convenience, although some may find it off-putting.
In its March 6 blog post, Google also mentioned that it aims to port Duplex to non-Pixel phones and to iOS devices in the near future. It appears that one part of this goal has come to fruition. Max Weinbach, an XDA contributor, claims that Google Assistant had booked a table at a restaurant for him using Duplex on his Samsung Galaxy S10.
Google Duplex on more Android phones and iOS may help with its current level of accessibility and uptake. On the other hand, many users with older models may find that it may not work on their phones due to a lack of dedicated AI processing capacities.
