Google assistant is an artificial intelligence-powered virtual assistant designed by Google and it is available in both Android smartphone and smart home devices. Since the initial release of Google assistant two years ago (May 2016), this feature has experienced many updates.
One of such update is the ability for you to switch the voice to have either an Australian or British accent. You could always do this in the past, but it involved changing your system language to another region like English UK or English AU. But now you can keep an accent while still keeping all the text and spelling as English US.
How to do this…
Step 1: Open the Google app on your phone
Step 2: Click the “More” tab to access the settings.
Step 3: Hit the “Assistant” tab and click “Assistant voice”
When it opens, two new voices for Google Assistant will appear. “Sydney Harbour Blue” is for the Australian voice and “British Racing green” is for the British accent.
But just in case you try it now and the new voice option didn’t show up right away, just chill for a while because the feature is still rolling out gradually.
