Google Assistant offers six new voices, can make appointments for you

The Android P Beta is now smarter and simpler and is more open to the future while the Google Assistant is better with new voices, custom routines, and multiple actions among others.

Back in October 2017, Google announced that it would be releasing a male voice to accompany the female Google Assistant voice.

Normally, each new request with our devices begins with "Hey Google".

"Hey Google" - exhausted of repeating this?

To review, the Google Assistant is now able to understand both "OK Google" and "Hey Google". The users can directly ask "What's the weather today?" and other multiple questions without any repetitive words.

Need an appointment? No problem. The digital assistant called on some famous voices (like Gordon Ramsay, Cardi B, Rebel Wilson and Sir Anthony Hopkins) to help her out, with some pretty hilarious results. The new offer will arrive this summer and aspires to assist not only users but also small businesses who don't provide online booking. Aside from the six new voices, the Google Assistant will soon be available in about 80 countries and will support 30 languages before the end of the year. It's a futuristic feature that could really set the company apart from its rivals Siri and Alexa. John's voice will be the only famous one added to the Google devices - the other five, consisting of both male and female tones, are created to sound more natural, thanks to the use of WaveNet technology. Soon, the American singer could be wishing you A Good Night on your phone, around the house or in your auto. Thanks to Family Link, the Assistant offers free games, activities and stories from content partners like Disney. Over at the I/O conference, the tech giant's CEO Sundar Pichai showed off the latest Google Assistant features, as well as, played clips of the new voices.
