I don't know how useful (if at all) this will be for the Google home device users (I have never used one so don't know how you interface with the settings) but I may be onto something with phones.

I changed phones yesterday and noticed today that GA was speaking in a very robotic and lifeless generic American accent. Proceeding to GA settings I found the language was set to English US so I changed that to English UK. This didn't solve the issue - I was still being presented with the same set of US voices in GA voice settings. I then however checked the actual system language settings (for the phone itself) to find they were English US by default (I'm from the UK so that was a bit odd but perhaps my fault during initial set up). Having set it to UK and rebooted, low and behold, the nice English GA is back.
