Android N includes option to adjust tone and tempo of voice commands




Google has added a feature to the Android developer N version, which makes it possible for users to adjust the pitch and speed at which the software ‘talks’. The new options should work for any language.

Android Police discovered the ability to customize the text-to-speech engine of Android. The new feature is in the second release of the developer version of Android N, which Google recently released . In the settings, users can set whether the statements of the engine to have faster or slower. Also, the pitch, higher or lower, can thereby be adjusted.

Previously, it turned out that it is possible in the second release of Android N to add shortcuts to the launcher. This makes it possible to create a shortcut for ‘navigate home’ via a mapping application like Google Maps. There is also support for the Vulkan-api and new emoji. In the first developer release all multi-window support was to show multiple apps simultaneously on the screen. This is similar to a feature which Samsung for quite some time has sat down in its Android devices.

Not all details are known about Android N. It is likely that Google at its I / O conference next month will give more information about the new version of its mobile operating system. Probably Android N in the fall, but must come three new preview versions in the meantime.
