    My friend tells me to google and learn more of Ben Carson. I say: Yes, I'll do that

    My friend tells me to google and learn more of Ben Carson. I say:

    Yes, I'll do that/it right now.

    What's the difference here?

    I am not a teacher.

    There's no real difference.

    I would probably use 'that', but 'it' would be my choice if my friend later asked me whether I'd done it yet. 'No, I'll do it right now'.

    I agree with Roman. They are interchangeable.
