JOHN LEGEND IS LENDING HIS VOICE TO GOOGLE ASSISTANTS

The All of Me hitmaker is providing one of six new personalities for the artificial intelligence software, which will be unveiled in the tech giant's line of electronics later this year.

The news was revealed on Tuesday at the company's annual I/O developer conference in California, and John's wife, model Chrissy Teigen, was quick to joke about replacing her husband around the house.

After sharing a link to the announcement on Twitter, the pregnant beauty quipped, "I don’t even need human John anymore", to which the singer replied, "Well. The Google Assistant doesn't do EVERYTHING".

John's voice will be the only famous one added to the Google devices - the other five, consisting of both male and female tones, are designed to sound more natural, thanks to the use of WaveNet technology.
