Google Assistant to get six new voices

The company's digital concierge, known only as the Google Assistant, is getting new voices - including one based on that of musician John Legend - later this year. This feature is something the company is calling Google Duplex - a virtual assistant that was able to speak to a human working in a hair salon without any issue.

This new version of the Assistant is built on a tech machine learning technology called Wavenet, which the company started building out some 18 months ago. Users will be able to have a natural back-and-forth conversation with the Google Assistant without repeating "Hey Google" for each follow-up request.

The new feature lets Google Play users instantly play select titles direct from the digital marketplace, meaning players can jump into the action without having to wait on a lengthy download.

The new powerful Assistant can now distinguish between two sentences that are joined by "and" and can reply with two different query-specific answers in one go.
