Google also last week updated actions that its assistant can perform on smartwatches powered by its Wear OS software. Simply put, it allows the Google Assistant to speak on your behalf, to say, make an appointment at the salon or book a table for your gang at a restaurant - all with a natural, friendly voice.
Updates to Assistant are meant to help the user look less at their smartphone, spending more time addressing the device out loud, Google said.
Nonetheless, everyone is excited about the new Google Duplex, with Engadget even saying that the Google AI Assistant may have beaten the Turing test. Moreover, Google has made the voicesmore realistic and has added the support for continued conversation for a more human-like experience.
The CEO did his best to elaborate the nuances of Google Duplex, which visibly got the audience interested.
Also, it isn't just about the voice quality as it can pose the right questions, besides also putting in the right answers as well. Like the smart speakers, you'll be able to give a variety of voice commands, and like the Show you'll be able to see, as well as hear, the results. By all accounts, the assistant spoke nearly like a genuine human, with only a few hints that the speaker was even a machine. We mentioned earlier there will be six new voices for the Assistant and later this year, John Legend will be lending his voice.

The assistant will send it across as a message. During the keynote, Pichai showed an example how the digital assistant can actually make a haircut appointment with a time slot and day given to Google initially. All you need to do is open Google Assistant and swipe up.
