Google's reservation-making artificial intelligence system is coming to the iPhone and other devices, the firm announced on Wednesday. You can then ask a follow up question without the Google wake words, such as "What did Rami Malek win", and you'll get your answer, with Google using the context from the previous question to know what you're talking about.

Upon its announcement, the feature raised concerns to many who argued that the Google Assistant was far too convincble to being a real person, really freaking some people out. You can also remove photos from the device easily with your voice.

What it basically does is that it calls a restaurant and then proceeds with a conversation and gets a table (or tables) booked for you.

Google is continuing to roll out new features for the Google Assistant on all of its platforms.
