If you do not like the default voice of Google Assistant or you simply think that it does not make sense that by default it is that of a woman, you should know that you can change it. Google already allows you to choose between the voice of a man and a woman. And depending on the language in which you have it configured, the options will be more or less varied.

We do not want to open any type of debate or controversy related to machismo, but we do want you to know that if you do not like that the voice of Google Assistant is that of a woman, you will be able to change it.
Google long ago announced that more voices would be coming to its voice assistant. It is logical that not the same to each of the languages that they support, but yes that the users were going to have more options.

- Select the one you like the most and voila. Of course, at any time you can change again if you wish.
Finally, you have to know that these new voices are available for the moment on speakers with the integrated Google Assistant, Devices with iOS 10.0 or higher, tablets, Chromebooks and Screen with the Google Assistant. And remember also that depending on the language settings of your device, not all voices may be available.
More voices for Google Assistant
As we have said, Google Assistant offers a greater or lesser number of voices depending on the language in which it is configured. Being, logically, English the one that has the most varied options. If you use the language and want to see each and every one of them, some even famous, you should know that you can.

If you say “Hey Google, talk like John Legend” you will be pleasantly surprised. And if you want other celebrities, you can also choose Sydney Harbor.
Finally, there is also an option that could be very interesting for all those who use the voice assistant in English: the possibility of answering with the voice of a man or a woman depending on the user who speaks to him.
To achieve this you must activate the voice recognition option, Voice Match . Once done, it will be a matter of setting the preferences and training the assistant himself so that recognition is more precise. Thus, for example, to the little ones in the house she could respond with a woman’s voice if she wants to and with a man’s voice to you. It’s up to you.
