It's no joke... John Legend really is lending his voice to an upcoming Google Assistant update. The search engine giant announced the Grammy Award winner's involvement at a recent developers conference.
According to this report, Google is using a new technology called WaveNet to create a natural sounding fully voiced ai assistant using short recordings of the primary voice as opposed to endless months in a studio recording every last phrase.
Legend's voice will hit Google Assistant as one of 7 new voice options later this year.
Just imagine it now "Hey Google... show me ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL my emails!!!"
