Google—a word that has defined itself. The word that no one has stopped uttering since the birth of 21st century. Google has become the chanting of every human being on Earth looking for an answer. Every query regardless of its nature has been promptly answered by Google and those answers give us the drive to decide almost everything in our life. But wouldn’t you be surprised to hear that there are several communities who are yet to experience this addictive silicon wonder? There are, indeed.
Google’s reach has escaped the citizens who are still in love with the legacy phones—the phones with outdated tech and void of any modern features. The primary reason why we value Google and Google Assistant is the same as why we value our smartphones. You know it. It has become that neither can survive without the other. In this case, the country Google has got on board is Columbia. The rural residents of Colombia did not have an opportunity to get a good taste of Google Assistant until now, but how? Did Google provide them with smartphones? NO. Instead, it gave them myline.
In Colombia, if you call 6000913, you might encounter the legacy version of Google Assistant. You may completely lack internet connection or a smartphone or a PC, but still, if you call that number, you’ll have the Google Assistant at your beck and call. Confused? It’s quite simple actually. When someone calls 6000913 and asks a question,
- That question is processed
- It’s connected with Google Systems in Cloud
- myline receives the response and speaks it back to the caller.
The procedure is the usual one—the same old customer care experience, but with Google Assistant on board. If you call that number, you’d hear a welcome greeting, an invitation to ask any question and the prompts go on and on as long as you would want. This utilizes Google Assistant SDK for this purpose and to be exact, this has opened up another world to the Columbians, by simplifying the solution without altering their lifestyle. As per public assessment, myline enables the entrance of technology to the remote parts of Columbia.
And of course, there are indeed a lot of other “Colombias” in this world, still without the means to access the Google. If this initiative booms as to become a success, then we could expect this approach to be extended to other nations as well. Anyway better remember that number. Might come handy in future!
