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.
