Google recently announced the addition of actress Issa Rae to their Google Assistant software for a limited time.


In order to switch to Raeโ€™s voice, users in the United States simply have to say, โ€œHey Google, talk like Issa.โ€.

According to Rae, working with Google was an โ€œorganic process.โ€.

I was in talks to do this last year and was just really intrigued, like, 'What?

They want my voice?


โ€ฆ Then, you know, I realized that I use Google Assistant frequently anyway and just thought about how cool it would be to do, Issa Rae, via CNN.

Rae reportedly spent many hours in the studio recording various phrases and words, a process she called โ€œchallenging.โ€.

I'm just so used to reading them.

So you're like, 'Oh, I've never actually had to say this word out loud.โ€™ โ€ฆ It was unique.

I'd never done anything like that before, Issa Rae, via CNN.

Rae is the second celebrity voice to be featured on Googleโ€™s artificial intelligence-powered software.

John Legend previously made a cameo on Google Assistant in April 2019.
