John Legend will be one of the new voices added to Google Assistant.
Google made the announcement at it’s I/O conference today, saying that using a technology called “WaveNet,” they’ve crafted Legend’s voice to not only respond to standard questions, but virtually any query.
This means that you’ll virtually be able to have an actual conversation with a virtual John Legend, if you so choose. Reports say Google is also expanding the features that Assistant is capable of, allowing Legend to live in over 5000 different devices, from your cell phone, to your dishwasher, to your doorbell.
Not enough? Virtual John Legend will make appointments on your behalf at the doctor, hairdresser, or wherever. Why suffer through one of the most painful cell phone experiences when you can just let Grammy Award-winning Singer/Songwriter John Legend do your minute tasks for you? He’ll even be able to order you a pizza!
Legend, as well as his wife, Chrissy Teigen, have worked as spokespeople for Google for some time now, so putting Legend inside everyone’s phones is frankly a no-brainer for the company.
