John Legend will be the voice of some Google Assistant queries
Sorry, Siri. Back off, Alexa. Cortana, just… don’t even.
John freaking Legend — the honey-voiced man who is basically the dictionary definition of “dulcet tones” — will be one of several new voice options on Google Assistant, the company announced Tuesday.
Legend spent some time in the Google studio recording his voice, so he can be part of your home life. Honestly, it’s just so generous of Chrissy Teigen to share.
Google CEO Sundar Pichai announced the hot collab as the cherry on top of his keynote at Google I/O, Google’s developer conference. Google is rolling out six additional voices for Home Assistant, too.
But TBH we only have eyes, er, ears, for John.
Legend’s voice won’t be fully integrated as Google Assistant. The capacity will be limited to standard queries, such as “Good Morning, Rachel,” or, “I Love You, Rachel.” Just kidding on that last one! Right?? Totally just kidding!!!! (SUNDAR CAN HE DO THIS?)
But Legend can be the voice of your Google Assistant wake up message, tell you about your appointments, recipes, and more. Let’s just say, the demo featured the smoothest damn weather report we’ve ever heard.
John Legend Assistant will reportedly come out later this year, and only in these limited capacities.
Oh, and Chrissy is excited, too.
