In this way, the already extensive range offered by this browser in terms of functions and in terms of customization is expanded. Among the highlights we have the ability to calibrate the compass, measure distances, look at gas station prices or change the arrow icon.

What reasons are there to change the voice and language in the GPS navigator?
Although changing the voice with which you receive the instructions is an interesting option, you should know that this will not change the operation of the application in any way, however, it will give a very personal touch to the service. This will allow you listen to directions in a different voice to the usual, and even in a different language.
And it is also a way of changing that routine, yet flattering voice that has been accompanying us for so many years and that has been improving. In this way, we will be able to change the Spanish female voice for other accents (no matter how limited the amount is), something that is very positive. As long as an app offers us options to choose from, consequently it will be better. As with the language, in the case of learning the road language in another language or so that a foreigner can configure it quickly and without leaving the interface. The best thing about all this is that you can do it with just a few simple steps and regardless of the device you are using
How to change voice and language on Google Maps
Next, once the possible reasons why we can be motivated to make these configurations have been exposed, we will show how to achieve it on our Android. Of course, it will not be necessary to resort to any external application, not even anywhere else on the device. We only need Google Maps to change the voice and language in the interface.
Change the voice
If you have an Android device and want to hear a new voice in your Google Maps app, you can do it quickly. These are the steps you must follow to do it:
- Open the app Google maps on your Android mobile.
- Click on the your profile photo on Google, located in the upper right corner to open the Menu.
- Scroll down and select the option Settings.
- Now, go to the bottom of the page and click on Navigation settings.
- Once there, click on the option »Selected voice».
- Then, choose the language of the voice you want to hear when Google Maps gives you directions.
Change the language, without going to the settings
Google Maps was not one of those that precisely allowed to change the language, although at present it is. It has a menu in its settings by calling App language. Its purpose is the same as that deduced from its name: it allows you to choose between all the languages that are supported in the application. When choosing one of them, Google Maps restarts in the new language.
To use this new menu, you must tap on your profile photo, in the search bar, and enter the section of Settings. The language menu is at the top, which is a good idea, as you can find it if you mistakenly change the language to one you don’t understand.
