The conversation will be transcribed real-time to show what the caller is speaking. The caller will be alerted that Google Assistant is screening the communication and the caller will be required to state their name and purpose of calling, which will be relayed to you. Then you will have the option to either answer it or end it, and report the number to spam.

Spam calls have been on a rise and telemarketers have been aggressive with their calls. With the recent advancement in technology, companies don’t require real humans on the phone, but can instead rely on a voice-recognition assistant to keep on a conversation going with a person.

Google has been implementing such features to reduce the number of spam calls. With the implementation of Google Duplex, a feature that lets Google Assistant talk on your behalf, Google is moving towards automating phone calls with A.I.
