Change the Sound of Your Google Assistant’s Voice

If you’re using Google Assistant Voice to manage your everyday tasks, hearing the same robotic sound throughout the day can get tiresome at times.

So if you’re someone who hates the default voice of Google Assistant, you’ll be happy to hear that you can change the Google assistant’s voice with just a few taps of your finger. 

Initially, Google Assistant started using the voice of Kiki Baessell, the same actress behind the voice of Google call forwarding and voicemail services. In addition, the company introduced Issa Rae as an optional voice of the Assistant and then launched additional six new voice options at Google I/O 2018, followed by another three that made public last year – John Legend, Sydney Harbour Blue, and British Racing Green.

Now users have the option to choose assistant voices from a number of male and female ones including celebrities like John Legend or Issa Rae.
