How to Change Your Google Home and Assistant Voice

This guide explains how to change the voice of your Google Home, also known as Google Assistant. A few years ago Google added a male voice, and these days there are now about ten voices to choose from. If you want to get rid of the robotic tooth, now you can.

It only takes about 15 seconds in the Google Home app. Originally the second male voice was very robotic, but now all 10 voices called different colors within the app are awesome.

How to Change the Voice on Your Google Home

The new voice options are available in both Google Home and Assistant simply by opening the Google Home app on your phone. Then follow our steps below.

  1. from your app tray
  2. Tap the picture button at the bottom right
  3. Scroll down and select
  4. Tap and select the column
  5. a sound (color) you like

When you get to the sound screen, you will see a series of circles, all in different colors. For now, this is how Google displays and names the voice options. Swipe or tap each color and listen to the audio sample. Choose which one you like and leave that color selected. It’s that simple.

At Google I/O in May 2018, Google confirmed multiple new voices, including singer John Legend. Expect more features, sounds and options throughout 2019.

Previously there were different instructions for changing the volume on your Google Home devices, Google Assistant or phone. Now everything is under one roof in the Home application.

Other details

Traditionally all bots and assistants have a female voice. Everyone from Siri, Alexa, Cortana, Google Maps and Google Assistant. Studies show that both men and women respond better to female voices. People find him more feminine and trustworthy than a domineering and masculine man. Google is trying to change that.
