You Can Now Make John Legend Your Google Assistant Voice

John Legend Google Assistant Voice

We're in 2019 now and John Legend is finally here. But if your device doesn't have always-on Assistant enabled, launch Google Assistant (long-press the Home button or press the Assistant button on your phone) and say "talk like a Legend". Open the Google Assistant app on your device, then tap the button with three dots, and tap Settings. Google lists various commands that will work with Legend's voice, although most of your Assistant interactions will still go through the default voice.

This week's rollout of John Legend's velvety voice on Google Assistant has me seriously considering an AI swap. But there are specific things you can say to get him to respond, instead of one of Google's more generic Assistant voices. Thanks to Google's DeepMind artificial intelligence and speech synthesis model WaveNet, Google can easily sample human speech, thereby cutting down on studio time, and still create realistic-sounding voices. And Google says there are some "surprises" too, including for answers to questions like "Hey Google, serenade me" or "Hey Google, are we just ordinary people?".

Bernie Sanders will appear at town hall hosted by Fox News
This shift largely reflects politicians reacting to a progressive base that looks with suspicion and distrust on big-money donors. Sanders's campaign manager, Faiz Shakir, said the total came from 525,000 donors and 900,000 individual donations.

If you've ever dreamed that you would one day wake up to John Legend giving you the weather report, you could be in luck; Google has announced that John Legend's voice is now available "as a cameo on the Google Assistant for a limited time in the US". It's a nice twist on the standard Google Assistant experience, and it seems we might be in for more of these in the future from Google. According to Google, John Legend will be available for select Assistant interactions starting today. Ask the Assistant to sing you a song, sing happy birthday, if it is John Legend, about Chrissy Teigen, or to tell you a joke.
