After the app starts, tap the account icon at the bottom right and tap “Other Settings” in the “Google Assistant” item.

Swipe the screen or tap the circle to switch between red (female) and orange (male). If you select each, you can listen to the sample voice.

Settings are saved when the screen is switched while the selected audio is displayed.

The added sound is based on ' WaveNet ', which was created by Google's artificial intelligence project ' DeepMind ' and can generate natural sounds like humans. By the way, in the United States, 11 types of voices are available, including the voice of John Legend , who has a history of winning all Emmy, Grammy, Academy and Tony Awards.
