Celebrity star Issa Rae recently (Tuesday October 8 precisely) spoke about being Google Assistant’s next celebrity voice,.... “It’s one of the coolest things to happen to me in recent times,” she said.
And just like that, users can switch from the classic Google Assistant voice to the sweet celebrity voice by saying, “Hey Google, talk like Issa,” or by going to “Assistant voice” in Assistant Settings. Regular stuffs like giving updates on the weather or telling a joke is still done, #but with an added feature- motivational advice when needed... It only gets cooler in Rae's voice!
The star expressed her excitement as she said: “Being in the recording studio and being able to be myself and be such a helpful presence, and a voice, and being a black woman who gets to help you day-to-day navigate your life and make your life easier is just the dopest thing to me and I’m honored to be thought of and to be a voice.”
