How it works
Booking an appointment
If the customer wants to book an appointment, Assistant will confirm specific details like the customer's preferred time, type of service, or size of party. Once this information is confirmed, Assistant will try to book an appointment with your business by using an online booking partner (if available) or by calling your business using the automated voice-calling technology from Google Assistant (calls are monitored and recorded for quality assurance). At this time, appointment bookings with Google Assistant are only available in the United States.
Checking business information
To ensure that Google shows accurate information about your business, like your business hours or the status of in-demand inventory, Google may call or text your business to confirm information that you've not yet confirmed. These calls or texts may use the automated voice-calling technology from Google Assistant (calls are monitored and recorded for quality assurance) and may result in updates to your business profile on Google Search and Maps.
Checking restaurant wait time
If the customer wants to get the current wait time for a table at your business, Google may call your business to get the information and share the wait-time information with the customer. These calls may use the automated voice-calling technology from Google Assistant. Calls are monitored and recorded for quality assurance. At this time, checking the wait time with Google Assistant is only available in the United States.
