Truecaller Brings Personal Voice to AI Assistant in Collaboration With Microsoft

  • Truecaller now lets users set their personal voice for AI voice assistant.
  • The feature uses Microsoft’s Personal Voice technology from Azure AI Speech.

Truecaller has partnered with Microsoft to introduce a new AI feature in its app. After introducing Truecaller Assistant to take calls on users’ behalf and avoid spam calls, the company is adding yet another AI feature to the assistant. Truecaller has now partnered with Microsoft to utilize the new Personal Voice technology powered by Azure AI Speech in its AI assistant.

Truecaller Users Can Now Set Their Voice for AI Assistant

While Truecaller Assistant supports English, Hindi, Hinglish, and many regional languages, the assistant voice was earlier automated and not personalised to users. Now, with Microsoft’s Personal Voice integration Truecaller Assistant users can create a digital version of their voice and use it for the assistant.

This means that instead of various generic voices offered by Truecaller Assistant in the past, users can now have their voice greeting the callers. While this new feature gives the greeting a personal touch, Truecaller will still let others know they are talking to an AI assistant by default.

According to the official Truecaller community post, the company is the early access partner for Personal Voice by Microsoft. Microsft recently showcased the Azure AI Speech technology at its Microsoft Build Conference.
