The “Insecure” star is the second celebrity to bring her vocals to the digital virtual assistant. Along with John Legend, who joined the platform earlier this year, Rae’s voice is now available for a limited time on any device that has the Google Assistant, including Google Home speakers and on mobile for Android and iOS.

To switch to her voice, just say, “Hey Google, talk like Issa.” You can also select it in the “Assistant voice” settings section.

According to Variety, Rae spent 40 hours in a recording studio saying "random sentences."

“One of the most fun days was just being myself – I give people compliments,” she said.

In addition to being complimented by Rae, you can also ask her questions like, “When’s the first day of winter?” or “How do I look?” She will also tell you a joke or secret.

The filmmaker will even answer fun questions like “Hey Google, do you love Daniel or Lawrence more?” or “Hey Google, tell me something awkward.”
