To activate the voice of John Legend, users can simply talk ‘Hey, Google, talk like a Legend’ or do the settings directly from the Settings menu.
Unfortunately, this feature is only available for English-speaking users in the United States. Although still limited, it is also possible, Google will bring it to more regions in the future.

“WaveNet allows us to shorten the recording time in the studio, and sound models can really capture the richness of his voice,” said Google CEO Sundar Pichai, during Google I / O last year.
