(Newser) – John Legend is at your command. As the first celebrity voice for Google Assistant, the musician will report the weather, tell a joke, or sing "Happy Birthday" when prompted. Legend also answered questions like "Are you John Legend?" and "Who is Chrissy Teigen?" for the collaboration, which users can access by saying, "Hey Google, talk like a Legend." Only select content will be relayed in Legend's "silky-smooth voice," which is available for a limited time, per the Verge. Expect to hear from more celebrities in the future. "Cameo voices" are among Assistant's most-requested features, per Tech Crunch. (Read more Google stories.)
