Google Assistant launches first celebrity cameo with John Legend

first_imgGoogle also hinted that more celebrity cameos could be on the way thanks to the company’s WaveNet tech — a speech synthesis program that helped bring John Legend to your countertop smart speaker. In the meantime, here is Google’s list of questions you can ask to hear a reply from John Legend: Easter eggs: “Serenade me.” “Sing me a song.” “Are you John Legend?” “Do you know Chrissy Teigen?” “How are you?” “Sing Happy Birthday.” “Tell me a joke.” “Who’s your celebrity crush?” “What’s your favorite song?” “What’s your best pickup line?” “Compliment me.” Ordinary questions: “What’s the weather?” “How far away is the moon?” “What are jazz hands?” “How do you cook bacon in the oven?” “Is there an atmosphere on the moon?” “Is Venus the same size as the Earth?” “Why is the sky blue?” “What’s the temperature outside?” “Do I need an umbrella today?” $99 Smart Home Culture Share your voice Preview • For your consideration: Google Home seeks employment as your family’s Rosie the robot Google Assistant is everywhere at CES 2019: Here’s everything announced so far 6:59 See it Walmart Aug 31 • Best smart light bulbs for 2019 (plus switches, light strips, accessories and more) Google Home News • Black Mirror season 5 has three new trailers to stress you out today CNET Smart Home Aug 31 • Alexa can tell you if someone breaks into your house $79 reading • Google Assistant launches first celebrity cameo with John Legend CNET may get a commission from retail offers. Google Almost a year ago, Google announced a bunch of new voice options for the company’s digital helper, simply known as Google Assistant. Singer and songwriter John Legend headlined the group of voices, which were otherwise of the AI-generated variety. The rest launched shortly after the May announcement, and finally, starting Wednesday, Google’s first celebrity cameo for Google Assistant goes live. John Legend’s voice will be available in English in the US on any device with Google Assistant — smart speakers like the Google Home, smart displays like the  Google Home Hub and smartphones. You can enable it in the settings of the Google Assistant app or by telling your device to “Talk like a Legend.” (Here’s more detail on how to give Google Assistant John Legend’s voice.) Note that your default Google Assistant will still respond to most of your queries. John Legend’s voice will respond only to certain relevant questions like, “What’s your favorite music?” as well as some more general ones like, “What’s the weather?” And apparently, John Legend’s voice will be available only for a limited amount of time. $69 Now playing: Watch this: • See It Mentioned Above Google Home Comment Aug 31 • The best coffee grinders you can buy right now See It Google Assistant makes your Android texts smarter Aug 30 • Battling bot vacs: iRobot Roomba S9+ vs Neato Botvac D7 Connected How To • Make Google Home get your groceries CNET Smart Home Review • Google Home is better than ever, but you probably shouldn’t buy it 1 24 Photos Tags Crutchfield See All Google Assistant Googlelast_img
