John Legend Is Now a New Voice for Google Assistant
Published May 08, 2018If you've ever dreamed of waking up and having John Legend's velvety voice sing you the forecast and your morning schedule, you're in luck. It was revealed earlier today that the R&B star is one of the new voices coming to the Google Assistant.
Yes, the next time you need to know a sports score, recipe or random fact, you can just ask your Google Home or Android device, and John will give you the answer.
Need directions to the nearest gas station? John's got you covered. Want to hear the latest John Legend single? John Legend himself can make that happen.
The latest update was revealed by Google CEO Sundar Pichai at the annual I/O developers conference earlier today in California. He explained that Legend will provide one of six new voices coming to the Google Assistant thanks to WaveNet technology.
The best part? Google Assistant users won't have to wait very long to start conversing with Legend and the other new voices — they'll hit devices later today.
