Google Assistant gets new voice options in nine more languages

Google Assistant gets new voice options in nine more languages Google Assistant users outside the US haven't had much choice when it comes to voice options -- until now, as Google launches a second voice for Assistant in French, German, Dutch, Japanese, Norwegian, Korean, Italian and English for India and the UK. The new voices have been built with DeepMind's WaveNet technology to help them sound natural, and will be displayed in settings as a color, rather than as a gender. Users selecting a voice in one of these languages will be able to choose from "orange" or "red," and when you set up Google Assistant for the first time you'll be randomly assigned one of them.

So it's Cher , Dancing Queen. And all of these are ABBA songs. Yep. That 's, I mean, what a brilliant--. are you going to do more remixes of songs? I don ' t want to hear my voice . How do you feel about hearing your voice ? Yeah, I feel the same way. OK, well, that 's how I feel about watching myself.

Cher is a global icon who's entertained millions over the decades, but she's not lining up to listen to herself sing.

"In general, I'm not a huge Cher fan, I'm really not. I'd rather do the singing than listen to it," she told The Sun on Sunday. "I don't want to listen to what I do, I don't want to see it and I don't want to hear my voice."

She even struggled to sing in front of her late ex-husband Sonny Bono.

"I'm really not outgoing and I never have been. I'm kind of shy. When I'm on stage that feeling goes away, but right before I go up I feel like I am going to pass out," she said. "I couldn't even sing in front of Sonny."

Jackson where he is from.""Alexa, ask Sam to wake me up at 7 a.m.""Alexa, ask Sam Jackson to sing happy birthday." But Jackson wouldn't be who he is if he weren't a little explicit, right? Don't worry. Amazon is leaning into the actor's essence.

California-born singer Cher , 73, has revealed she cannot bear to listen to her own music and would be shy when it came to singing in front of her former husband Sonny Bono. ' I don ' t want to listen to what I do, I don ' t want to see it and I don ' t want to hear my voice ,' she told The Sun On Sunday.

She recalled Sonny writing their massive hit "I Got You Babe" in the middle of the night and wanting her to sing it. She told him she didn't want to.

"He said, 'Cher, it's only me, just sing it,'" she recalled. "So I did and afterwards I said 'I don't think it is very good, I am going back to bed'. It wouldn't be the first time I was wrong."

She was also wrong about her career… several times.

"I've had many times when I thought my career was over. I have gone up so high and then fallen down so low. I did the films Witches, Moonstruck and Suspect in a row, then I made an album. Then I went on tour to publicize all of those things then I came back and just fell apart," she said. "I was sick for two years."

Now, though, Cher sees the end in sight.

"This is my last tour. I'm 73. I skip across the stage then once I get around it I walk," she said. "My mom is 93 and she keeps going, 'Cher, age is just a number. If you don't bother it, it won't bother you'. I keep going, 'Mom you are crazy'. It is so embarrassing because I keep on having these farewell tours. I'm not 100, but I'm close."

"I, honest to God, think this is the end," she continued, "not because I can't do it any more, but because I'm older than glass and people are just going to get tired of coming to see me."

Google Voice users can start calls and send messages with Siri .
Following its latest iOS update,Google Voice now works with Siri. You can use Apple's assistant to start calls or send messages through the service. You can enable Siri control by going to the Google Voice options and marking a default account for calls outside the app. Then, you'll have to activate the Use with Siri option for the app in the iOS device settings. It'll surely be a welcome update for Google Voice users who have an iPhone or iPad, particularly since Siri can learn your calling and messaging preferences, but it leaves the service in a strange place on the voice assistant front.
