The Google Home is Google’s version of the smart home device, similar to the Amazon Echo. 

You can use it to issue voice commands to play music, answer questions, and even control other devices in your home, like smart lights, a smart TV, or a Chromecast device, if you also have those. 

Like Alexa on an Amazon Echo, you can change your Google Home’s voice to better suit your tastes, no matter the reason. 

Google has given the device a range of different voices to choose from, including the voices of celebrities like John Legend or Issa Rae.

Here’s how to change your Google Home’s voice.
