How To Change The Google Assistant Voice On Your Android Phone

The Google Assistant is a Google’s own voice controlled AI assistant that can make using a smartphone easier for consumers. This was first made available on Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL before being introduced to other Android smartphone models. You can activate this feature by long pressing on the home button of the phone or by saying “Ok Google”. There are a lot of things that you can do with this feature such as getting answers to your question or interact with the apps installed in your phone just to name a few.

Just recently google announced that it has made available eight voices that you can use for Google Assistant. If you want to test out which among the voices you would like to use then just follow the easy steps listed below.

  • Open Google Assistant by long pressing the Home button or saying “Hey Google”.
  • Press the blue icon in the top right of the Assistant window
  • On the Google Assistant app tap the hamburger menu in the top right of the screen, denoted by three vertical dots.
  • Tap Settings.
  • Choose Preferences.
  • Select Assistant Voice.
  • You can preview each of the eight Assistant voices by tapping on each one.

If your phone does not have Google Assistant installed then I suggest that you get it first from the Google Play Store. Your phone must be running on at least Android Lollipop for you to be able to get the app. If you are using a tablet then it must be running on at least Android Marshmallow. The other requirements are a 1.4GB of storage space and a 720p screen.
