How do I change the assistant voice? 1 Recommended Answer 15 Replies 20 Upvotes

I’m trying to change the voice on my google home hub, it’s recently rebooted itself and gone to an American voice, which is lovely but I’d prefer to go back to the English voice. Looking through all of the help it says there should be an option in he settings but it’s just not there.

That’s perfect - exactly what I needed. Thanks so much. A bit nuts that I have to change the language to American so that it will speak English but there are worse things

Well the side benefit is that most of the feature updates are released to English (U.S.) users first, and it can be quite some time before they're available in other countries. As a user based in the UK, I can tell you that the setup you have now will mean that you may see some features working that are not yet officially deployed to UK users. For example, Continued conversation appears to be working on my Google Home devices, yet isn't officially available to me yet.

When will the voice options be made available in Canada?

You have to also change it in the phone's settings for the voices to appear.

And the selection of voices is pretty limited with only a couple having much appeal at all to me personally.

I still haven't worked out what all the fuss is about with these devices. The AI is terrible when going off script, and it's often quicker to just type a question rather than stuff around with "sorry I don't understand that". I am lazy but not lazy enough to make use of the home automation given the price.
