Navigating your day with Google Maps has become a staple for drivers, bikers, and pedestrians alike. But did you know that you can personalize your experience by changing the voice guiding you? Whether you're looking to hear navigation in a different accent and language or want the novelty of a celebrity guiding your journey, Google Maps allows you to customize the voice to fit your preferences.

This guide provides simple steps on how to change voice on Google Maps on both iPhone and Android devices, enhancing your navigational experience.

How to Change Voice on Google Maps?

Step 2: Access Navigation Settings

Access Navigation Settings

Step 3: Choose Voice Selection

Choose Voice Selection

In the Navigation settings, tap on “Voice selection.” You will see a list of available voices, often including different languages and accents. Each voice may come with a preview you can listen to before choosing, ensuring it fits your ears and preferences.

Step 4: Select Your Preferred Voice

In contrast, you cannot directly change the voice in Google Maps on iPhone app as on Android. Instead, the voice used for navigation in Google Maps on an iPhone is tied to your device's language and region settings. Here’s how you can adjust these settings to change the voice in Google Maps indirectly:

Step 1. Open General Settings

Open General Settings

From your iPhone's home screen, open "Settings." In the Settings menu, go down and click "General."

Step 2. Access Language & Region

Find and tap on "Language & Region." Tap on "iPhone Language" to select a new language. This will affect the language across your device, including Google Maps.

Note that some languages have different accents depending on the region—for example, English can be set to the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, etc.

Step 3. Adjust Region

Adjust Region

You can also tap on "Region" to change your regional setting. This sometimes affects the accent of the voice. It also lets you click “Add Language” to choose the desired voice. After making your selections, you may need to confirm and possibly restart your iPhone for the changes to take effect.
