Too bad it isn't available on cells (yet). .
I've had this call screen feature on my Pixel 4 cell phone since I bought it.

Pixel Call Screening.

When I look back at the transcripts of the calls it's screened (yes it converts voice to text and keeps a log of all calls including the responses that the google-assistant makes), some of the conversations are amusing since it's sometimes just two computers talking to each other.

I can't prove it as I haven't found a confirmation but I'm confident "covid 19 Walmart ordering" can be added to the list of scams.

I received to calls yesterday, in a heavy dialect that had an odd pacing. The message was that covid 19 has everyone staying at home where Walmart was offering grocery ordering on the phone will delivery in 24 hours or less. The listener was directed to press one on the phone to place their order.

I understand Walmart is looking for delivery people so the claim of delivery in 24 hours or less plus the other factors make me think it's a scam.


Cheers

They want to confirm that your contact info is active. Then they put you onto the active scam list to get money in subsequent calls.
