Imagine if each one of us had an A.I as powerful as JARVIS or FRIDAY, as seen in Marvel Cinematic Universe.
How cool that would have been!
But coming to the reality, the only thing close to JARVIS or FRIDAY we have is Google Assistant.
Talking about Google Assistant, it is undoubtedly the most powerful and feature-rich virtual assistant as compared with its other counterparts. And it just keeps getting better, thanks to Google, who is known to be adding new features to Google Assistant every now and then.
By default, the Google Assistant has a female voice. But Google gives you the ability to change its voice and also the accent.
Here’s how you can change the Google Assistant voice on Android.
How To Change Google Assistant Voice on Android
Step 1: Go into your device’s Settings. Scroll and look for Google. Tap on it.
Step 2: You’ll see a number of Google’s services. From that list, tap on Search, Assistant & Voice.
Step 3: On the next menu, tap on Settings sitting right at top of the menu.
Step 4: Tap on the Assistant tab or simply swipe left. Under the Assitant tab, tap on Assistant voice.
Step 5: You will be presented with a carousel-style list of voices and accents that you can pick.
There are 10 different voices that you can select. Google has named all the voices after different colors. And FYI, colors were picked randomly. These colors do not represent any gender or accent.

The ten colors are – Red, Orange, Amber, Green, Cyan, Blue, Purple, Pink, British Racing Green, and Sydney Harbour Blue
By default, the voice of your Google Assitant will be ‘Red’. Now go through the carousel by swiping left or right. Stopping on a color will play a sample voice to give you an idea about how your Google Assistant is going to sound if you select that color. And yes, stopping on a particular color will automatically make that voice the voice of your Google Assistant.
Go ahead and listen out all the voices and pick the voice that better suits your personality. My favorite is Pink.
Remember that you need an active internet connection to change the Google Assistant voice.
