Google Text-to-Speech for Android to soon get high-quality voices, and more

Google will soon be releasing an update to its Google Text-to-Speech (TTS) app, with some user interface tweaks and enhanced voice quality, as the signed-APK file has emerged online.

The Google Text-to-Speech v3.0 app, which is yet to be rolled out officially via the Google Play Store (v2.4.3.864779 currently listed), will bring high quality voice support. This feature has not yet been official detailed, but from the file size of the high quality voice downloads, which has jumped from roughly 6MB to more than 200MB, we can assume some big changes have been made. The female English UK voice file is the biggest, at 276MB.

Android Police has published a video detailing some differences between the old and new versions of in the English (US) language pack, along with a demo of high quality English (UK). The new versions are said to sound more natural than the previous more high-pitched, robotic ones. The video can be seen below:

Upon testing the new versions of Google TTS, Android Police noted that the compatible Android smartphones might take some extra seconds to process the voice. The update also adds support for two new languages - Portuguese (Brazil) and Spanish (US).

The publication also released a few screenshots of the app, which revealed the language's 'Delete' button being replaced by a trashcan icon, along with the display of the language's file size.

One can download and manually install the Google Text-To-Speech 3.0v via APK files from here. However, we recommend the users to wait for the official Google release as there can be some final changes by the time rolls the version out.
