In the future, more voices for Assistant will be available as Google during the I/O conference made it official that six new voices, accompanied by John Legend’s voice, are going to be part of the Google Assistant voice list.

No doubt lots of users will be happy to have their favorite singer voice as Google Assistant app voice running on their devices.
