Google has announced that Google Assistant is getting a range of new features and also some new voices.
You will not be able to choose from six different voices for your Google Assistant, you can hear these voices in the video below.
Other new features will include Continued Conversation where you will be able to ask the assistant to perform tasks without having to say ‘Hey Google’ between each task. You will also be perform multiple tasks at the same time.
One of the most important parts of the Assistant is its voice—it needs to feel both personal and natural. Up until now, creating a new voice took hundreds of hours in a recording studio. But with advancements in AI and WaveNet technology from DeepMind, we can now create new voices in just a few weeks and are able to capture subtleties like pitch, pace, and all the pauses that convey meaning, so that voices are natural-sounding and unique. Starting today, you can choose from six new voices for your Google Assistant. And John Legend will lend his melodic tones to the Assistant later this year—who wouldn’t want him wishing you A Good Night?
