Owners of Google’s smart speaker, Google Home, will soon have John Legend’s voice setting their schedules and providing recipe instructions.

Google announced on Monday at Google I/O, its annual developer conference in Mountain View, California, that Google Assistant, the company’s virtual assistant service, and Google Home would be adding six voices, including Grammy Award-winning singer Legend, according to CNET.

Legend and his wife, Chrissy Teigen, have recently starred in commercials for the search giant showing off its Apple Facetime competitor, Google Duo.

Teigan, who is expecting her second child with Legend, seemed happy that the singer would be one of the new voices.
