Google Assistant to Get a New Male Voice “Jay”

Google has been working on adding additional voices to the Assistant. I use text to speech a lot to listen to articles and books on my phone. I occasionally switch to different voices, just for a change. Soon, Google Assistant also will provide this flexibility.

According to 9to5Google, an upcoming version of the Google app will add a new voice named “Jay”. Users will be able to select from Jay or the existing female voice “Holly”. These voices are also called US Voice 2 and Use Voice 1 respectively.

I am not sure if I will be changing the voice on Google Assistant, but if the same voice becomes available o Android’s Text To Speech, I will definitely try it out.
