Google Assistant now has a male voice option


Google Assistant is including a little dimensionality to its voice characterization: The digital AI spouse were given an replace that provides a voice option known as “Voice II” which sounds decidedly male (by the use of Engadget). The second one voice option is to be had in Assistant’s settings (no longer but are living for all, so your mileage would possibly range) and applies to the House app in addition to in your telephone’s assistant.

It kind of feels like the extra voice option is restricted to US English simplest relating to language compatibility, however I’d be expecting Google to roll that out to further markets in time. It’s no longer a massive replace, and I’m certain we’ll pay attention lots extra about this and different adjustments to Assistant at Google’s tournament later lately (which kicks off at nine AM PT / 12 PM ET) but it surely’s a great addition for the reason that gendering those assistants completely feminine is tremendous problematic.
