This seems as though it’ll be the constraint of Duplex’s inclusion in the US until further notice, as Google reveals to The Verge it has no course of events to dispatch the help in the last hold-out state — Louisiana — because of undefined neighborhood laws.
Adjusting to neighborhood enactment is one reason Duplex has taken such a long time to carry out across the US. Google discloses to The Verge it’s needed to add certain highlights to the help (like contribution a get back to number for organizations reached by Duplex) to make it legitimate in certain states. In others, it’s essentially trusted that enactment will change.
