    Rather silly and unimpressive.

    Indian CEO….(proud moment)

    Google has some great stuff, and I love a lot of it but it´s turning (an already flawed and perfect in its flaws) Human into a 100% Google Dependant Being.

    Is this real?

    Make me happen ,what other choice do you have humans.

    Brazil is so surpassed that if someone had a phone call with so much respect and polite words, they would think it is a joke or will believe there’s something wrong and would never go forward with the appointment.



  8. Andrew Stevens on December 24, 2018 at 8:28 am

    It’s like an episode of black mirror



  9. Sebastien Carlus on December 24, 2018 at 8:30 am

    Sarah Connor ?



  10. Jesus the Purple Demon on December 24, 2018 at 8:31 am

    Its scary

    When will the industry of court reporters be replaced? At this time it is filled with mistakes.



  12. Mayravixx on December 24, 2018 at 8:35 am

    Just gonna say this now, this is freaky.



  13. Noob Fury on December 24, 2018 at 8:36 am

    Is this some sort of ad for Black Mirror Season 5?

    Is this the first successful Turing test?



  16. Jose Bonilla on December 24, 2018 at 8:40 am

    Why did the Assistant wait till half the conversation to specify the time window? Not terribly efficient.



  17. Tsunami Barrier on December 24, 2018 at 8:41 am

    Calling bullshit on this. It’s just someone using a soundboard. Look up Arnold prank phonecalls.

    I had to watch this for homework

  23. crazieeez on December 24, 2018 at 8:46 am

    Sundar Pichai, an Indian, looks like one of those IRS phone scammers. Google Assistant is one of those technologies to improve the efficacy of the scam.



  24. Rembo on December 24, 2018 at 8:47 am

    Not having an ‘AI’ TELL the person it is communicating with that it is an ‘AI’, is unethical.



  25. Audrey Nilsson on December 24, 2018 at 8:47 am

    People find it creepy.
    But we are in 2018, what will happen next?
    Androids in our home?
    Brain connected devices?
    Its futur.
    And I dont see myself go back to the time we didn’t have electricity.

    I am really excited to see what’s next!



  26. Andrew Stevens on December 24, 2018 at 8:47 am

    I wonder what would happen if you had phone sex would it



  27. zoe073 on December 24, 2018 at 8:49 am

    Piece of shit we don’t want



  28. kk ren on December 24, 2018 at 8:49 am

  32. Lara Sevian on December 24, 2018 at 8:54 am

    Now women can use a men’s voice without paying for an assistant and be taken more seriously lol



  33. Klin-Klin on December 24, 2018 at 8:55 am

    That thing sounds like a psycho imitating "social skills".



  34. CRANcrDOTax on December 24, 2018 at 8:55 am

    But what happens if a restaurant uses Google Duplex for Reservations and stuff and gets called by another Google AI? Secret information exchange about conquering the world? Woooosh



  35. Wahide Eda E. on December 24, 2018 at 8:58 am

    AI Technology is slowly starting to be able to do more things that we humans can do…

  50. Swe Dish on December 24, 2018 at 9:16 am

    All the telemarketing people will be out of a job. YAY and NAY! Now it will never stop, so I think I have to set up an AI answering machine.
