The service operates in over a dozen languages and offers playback speed control, and while it may not be as good as listening to an audiobook, it can make just about all the texts you find online in spoken words.
In fact, this same text-to-speech engine will be used to read content in other Google apps and services in the future, told by Google VP Yossi Matias VentureBeat in a telephone interview.
"This gives some interesting opportunities in the future, as is the case with many other forms we use TTS, how to improve your experience, how to do it more naturally, how to customize it, how to personalize it, these are kind of interesting directions that we can explore in the future, says Matias.
] Al-algorithms are employed to run the text-to-speech engine as well as determine what to read or not to read, and to identify the right path of a page. Google engineers also consider spoken image descriptions for future versions of the Go app. This means that you can exploit the image recognition power to find out what's in an image and then describe it to the user.
According to Google the Go app app uses WaveNet speech synthesis to approximate an expressive human voice and is available in 28 languages.
