Google Duplex uses Google Assistant to do things like making appointments and dinner reservations, using a voice call. The Google Assistant robot can have a conversation in the process. Leo says that Duplex passes the Turing Test, that means one can't tell the difference between a human and a computer, but there is a little bit that isn't "quite right." It keeps getting better though, and Google plans to roll out Duplex by the end of the year.
