This is how the new voice of Google Maps sounds

Google Maps he will finally stop talking like a robot. The company has announced on Twitter a future update in the application, which will have as its main novelty a change in the female voice of Maps. No dates have been given, but it has been shown what this new voice will be like, much more fluid and “humanized”.

Finally a new voice for Google Maps

Although Google Maps has gradually improved its voice prompts, it has stayed away from, for example, Google Assistant itself, which has a more natural tone of speech, more similar to what we would find in a conversation with a human. From the Google Twitter account they wanted to show how the new voice of Google Maps will sound in Spanish.

The voice, pitch and cadence of the female voice in Google Maps have been changed. The vowels are no longer lengthened and everything is now much more “human”

The voice, pitch and cadence with which the words are spoken have been changed. The final vowels are no longer lengthened (Turn the rotondaaaaaa), which allows instructions to be even clearer, less obtrusive and faster.

At the moment, Google has not given dates or more details. However, ensures that this new voice will come in a future updateSo it shouldn’t take too long to start enjoying this new voice model in the Google Maps application.
