You can now use Google Duplex on the Galaxy S10

Google Duplex — an AI-driven robot, who can call facilities like restaurants to make reservations on your behalf — has begun its much-anticipated rollout for non-Pixel-branded handsets in the United States, starting with the Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+, according to XDA-Developers.

The feature first launched alongside the Google Pixel 3 and Google Pixel 3 XL in October 2018, when it was restricted to just four cites in four different states in the United States. Now, six months later, it’s still only available in the region — but has expanded to a total of 43 more states.

Google Duplex is one of the most interesting developments to come out of Google’s Mountain View HQ in a while, letting users instruct Google Assistant to contact a restaurant, among several other local businesses, and make a reservation on their behalf for their desired date and time.

Duplex retrieves the contact number from Google Search, then uses AI to have a real-time conversation with the establishment’s receptionist, as showcased in the video below. It’s all a bit eerie, with the lady on the other end of the line being none the wiser to the fact she’s speaking to a robot.

But that’s the future, right? Soon enough there will be a robot on both ends of the line.

I checked the Samsung community. Apparently there needs to be some specific hardware that isn’t on Note9 or S9 to handle reverse charging. It’s not just software. That makes sense to me but maybe that information is wrong. We put reverse charging options on some of our control panel batteries, they’re not wireless but they need a chip to reverse the power. I’d be very surprised if software alone can do it, unless Samsung built it in the Note9, which is possible I suppose. We will see. It would be very handy to have for my watch!

It could be set just for show purpose.

Guys, have you seen the manual for PowerShare on the Galaxy Buds, it show cases a device, with an S Pen, dual camera and rear FPS with the ability to power share!? Is this a software update for the Note 9 or a new Note device?! 😱
