However, have you ever wondered about changing the voice of your assistant?

At today's Made by Google event, Google made pretty clear that they were completely invested into the Google Assistant and, especially, into the Google Home, which formally became a product lineup today. All the major AI assistants, for one reason or another, use a female voice, whether it sounds robotic or not. Once you do that, your cameras should show up in the Home Control section to be assigned rooms.

Google Assistant now also speaks other kinds of languages, too. Allowing the home assistant to ring phones in the home. It was announced that the Google Assistant will now be able to tackle 100 million new questions, all of which have been added to its repertoire over the course of the past year. The tech eschews unintuitive, unconvincing, and cumbersome reliance on word libraries to generate speech and instead employs machine learning to do the same. Both free and premium Spotify clients will have the capacity to utilize the voice commands, similar to, "alright Google, play some rock music on Spotify". Now available on nearly all of Google's different devices and platforms, not to mention integrating with third-party platforms, it has the potential to become what pundits and even conspiracists have been looking for: Google OS.

You can Pre-order the Google home mini from here! The assistant has also been improved to work well with kids, starting off with improvements to the voice recognition algorithm to play well with children. Amazon also has a kid-friendly account for the echo line.

Virtual assistants are the new big thing in the smartphone business, with every OEM nowadays pushing its take on it and it is now becoming a crowded market already, with Google's assistant and Apple's Siri being at the top of the pyramid.
