Google is using the Assistant to call businesses and check stock

Google is putting its AI concierge voice service technology, Duplex, to further use.

An update to the Google My Business Help listing about phone calls from Google Assistant indicates that businesses will be contacted about stocking levels for popular items. The relevant entry reads (with our emphasis on the new text):

Google Assistant will only call you when a customer wants to book an appointment or when it needs to check your business hours or the status of in-demand inventory. Assistant will avoid calling you during late night and early morning hours.
