John Legend voice cameo is leaving Google Assistant on March 23

Get serenaded while you still can.

Google Assistant won't be able to speak like John Legend for much longer. 

Musician John Legend's celebrity cameo as a voice for Google Assistant is coming to an end this month. In a tweet Thursday, Google said the fun voice option will cease on March 23

Google added the option last April and made Legend its first celebrity voice to serve as your digital helper. But we knew from the start that his voice would only be available for a limited time. In October, Google tapped Issa Rae, producer, writer and star of hit HBO series Insecure, as its second Assistant cameo voice.

Google has suggested in the past that more celebrity voices are on the way. The new voices are powered by WaveNet, an AI-based voice synthesizer created by DeepMind, a subsidiary of Google UK.
