BONUS TIP 2: CHANGE GOOGLE ASSISTANT VOICE TO MALE

Most virtual assistants including Google Assistant use female voice because of psychological reasons. However, if you want you can have a male voice or a different version of a female voice for Assistant.

Instead of giving you options like voice 1, voice 2, or male 1, female 1, etc., Google uses colors to differentiate the voices. Google randomly assigns the colors to a voice, and you need to pick a color to change the voice.

To do so, go to Google Assistant Settings. Then tap on Assistant voice present under the Assistant tab. Tap on the color to preview and select the voice.
