Google Puts More Voices In your Head with Latest Android Text to Speech Update


Google has added a variety of new voices in its latest update of the Google Text to Speech App. According to Android Authority version 3.8 offers several variant choices for each language. In our initial tests of the English version, 6 additional voices, 3 male and 3 female, were selectable, though all of the voices used similar speech patterns. One might compare these differences to variant settings offered in other screen readers. That being said, male and female options are now available for a variety of languages and should work on any recent version of Android. Get the update now from Google Play.

Google still has no US male voice. All they did, was make the female voice deep so she sounds like a male.
