Google will probably be the first one, and they desperately need it. It is almost impossible to reach someone at Google support, think about how many people they would need to hire. Billions of people use their services literally everyday.

I feel like its already happening, receiving annoying robo calls isn't unusual these days. 20 years is a long time - telemarketing needs to evolve (no idea how) or it will be gone.
