Since May, users have been awaiting the Google Duplex AI in the hopes that they'll never have to make a dentist appointment themselves again. On Nov 21, the company confirmed to VentureBeat that Duplex is finally arriving for public use, but only for a handful of Pixel users. 

As Google already outlined over the past couple months, the Duplex AI is being created to take and make phone calls on behalf of its users. In May at the Google I/O developer conference, there was a demo of the tech in action scheduling a hair appointment with a hairdresser and booking a table with a host, neither of whom appeared to realise that they were speaking with an inhuman machine.
