With the ubiquitous of the Internet and tech gadgets, most Vietnamese are now familiar with Google services, such as Google Translate, Google Maps, Google Assistant. While the clear pronunciation, deep, loud female voice over texts on Google is as familiar as an oath, the voice-over actress’s identity has never been known. Some people even questioned if the voice is programmed.
