Google Assistant Now Offers Male Voice Option Too

Google event stats

Google Assistant is finally expanding the languages it knows. Google Assistant is getting more integrations with Nest, which is also owned by Google. There is an inclination towards smart assistants among different platforms as Cortana, Siri and Google Assistant all started with female voice assistants.

Ever since the original Google Home launched, Google has marketed the device as the flawless home companion - a device that can help the whole family with searches, schedules, recipes, alarm clocks, music playback, et cetera.

The Cards news vice president of athletics met with the school's head coaches on Tuesday night. Tyra has been a long-time supporter of Louisville athletics.

Apart from the new feature of changing the voice, Google's Pixel event also unveiled some new ways in which the AI's voice assistant can be used, for example, by reading out stories to children, playing games and also for broadcasting messages to multiple Google Assistant devices at a time. All the major AI assistants, for one reason or another, use a female voice, whether it sounds robotic or not. So, it only makes sense that Google adds the voice assistant in the Chromebook.

The Google Home platform looks like a flawless match for Nest's series of smart home products and the newly announced partnership is yielding some interesting new features. So if you have a Nest camera set up, you can ask Home to show the live feed on your TV via Chromecast. It was announced that the Google Assistant will now be able to tackle 100 million new questions, all of which have been added to its repertoire over the course of the past year. Let's take a look at some of the more significant improvements to Google's own AI assistant announced at the Made By Google event. But before you go wild about that, it's actually not a standalone app for Assistant. For now, Google Chrome OS is compatible with Android apps and is already available on the Pixel phones.
