So here you can find that “How to get all of Google Assistant’s new voices right”
Tuesday, at the Google I/O 2018 conference, Google announced that users would soon be able to choose among six new voices, including the voice of John Legend. These new voices are powered by WaveNet, an AI-based voice synthesizer created by DeepMind, a subsidiary of Google UK.
You might be tired of Google Assistant’s standard, robotic voice, But now you’ll love to know that you can change it right now. Here is how.
- Open the Google Assistant app on your Android or iOS device.
- Tap the three dots in the upper right corner of the screen and go to Settings > Preferences > Assistant Voice.
- There, you can choose from all eight voices currently available and you can preview each one by tapping the speaker icon to the right of each option.
The voice which you select in this menu will be the voice that plays back to you when you use Google Assistant on your Android or iOS device, as well as on your Google Home speakers. And this voice selection works with multiple users, so each user in the household could select a different voice preference.
It’s important to note that John Legend’s voice is not yet available. Google tells us it will be rolling out separately later this year. Also, depending on your language settings, the additional voices may not be available on your devices.
