The human voice as API: Google Assistant call to Google Assistant

Last May, at Google I/O 18 they demonstrated Google Assistant calling a hairdresser, talking to the hairdresser and making an appointment, i.e. pretending to be a person and fooling the hairdresser. I would have believed it too.

The natural evolution of this demonstration would be another one that I am already proposing for Google I/O 19 in which a Google assistant calls and another Google assistant picks up the phone and pretends to be the hairdresser, both agree on an appointment and this is reflected in their Google Calendars.
This is not magic but making voice an API, a communication interface between machines, only that this way of communicating machines is natural to us.
