    This latest update is downright horrible. A very low audio volume unlike before. Contains only seven voices even though i was made to believe more voices have been added. I shouldn't have downloaded this update. Would have given 0 star if i could. Really disappointed.

    how to use Until about one year ago I LOVED THIS S APP !! Nine or so months ago however the Google Engine text to speech crashed... So I could not even guess anymore how many emails I have sent on Google Support. I have not heard anything!! NOTHING... 😿 I had gotten so used to having it (I now feel spoiled). I have been looking for months and months for an App to replace it. I can only find App's that will read my text messages or tell me who is calling me if I ask it to. I don't need Google Assistant!

This app is totally amazing I use it every single day !! This is a wonderful wonderful app I recommend it to everyone !! 😊😊😊

    pc An outstanding app and my all time favourites. Its very simple to use and it has many different functions that are useful to people from students to travelers. The only thing I'm not satisfied with is that; its doesn't have all the functions for languages. Yet this app is wonderful

    For the UK you can only pick two male & female, while if I used American I can pick several voices male & female, any other countries no good to me, English only. I want to be able to slow the voice down I have as a male he talks a bit to fast. I use Google Go & Google Assistant (Bixby is💩if I'm honest that can't understand simple words). *No YES in tell us more!* I don't think you want us to put YES in any of the 3boxes🤣

    Version 24.5 broke SSML support. I have contacted the dev team over email twice about this but more than a week passed and nobody responded. The engine is amazing and the quality of the voices is almost the best you can get these days, and it's free to use on an Android device. But responding to emails is not that hard ...

    Another update and British English male voice is still not fixed, it speaks high pitched and false in some words like a female, I dont understand how they managed to ruin this but it was ok, and the only solution to this is to uninstall and use stock package. There is probably 6 to 12 months to next update, so lets cross our fingers.

    It makes so many mistakes in terms of word usage and using the wrong word example to for too or weak week etc. It puts words in that I do not say it leaves words out that I do say especially the word not and it often puts the word and 4 in just as you see there it just put the number 4 in for.

    Although I really hate to admit it, this particular app from Google is a tremendous success, and has made a lazy man out of me as far as typing goes. I would rather use this out then type all the words out any day of the week. Good job guys!

    What can I say Google talk to speak sometimes I am hilariously laughing at what it thinks I'm saying it's almost like an x-rated movie other times it gets it right but I would say 75% of the time and I'm the only one using this you would think it would understand my enunciations it makes me go back and correct the words that think it heard as you can tell this is talk to speak

    The best app out there for sending random usually horrifying things to bosses and girlfriends. It helps keep things interesting, you may have just told your girlfriend you love her and cant wait to see her again OR you told her you loathe her and never want to see her again. Your driving so you cant edit it pre send or whats the point, you cant read it now to be prepared, again why bother if you still need to take your eyes off the road to fix it, but you'll find out when you get there. Its fun

    Is there no simple way to find alternative engines for this (selected in settings)? To be clear I want to use this Google TTS feature, not a standalone app. It says such engines can be DLed from Play Store but it's hard to find anything other than standalone apps - I've tried installing a few & seeing if their engines appear in Google TTS settings, but no luck so far. Its hard to google b/c no one seems to differentiate b/n these concepts which is odd. They're similar but the difference is huge.

    Took ages to figure out how to use it, didn't mention until I'd deep dived through all the information in the support section of the settings that you have to have a navigation bar set up (I use gestures). After going through all this hassle I tried to use it to read an email + it read about a paragraph + then just read out the names of the onscreen buttons and refused to read the rest of it. Tried pasting the plain text into a doc, it said there was no text, absolute joke, waste of time 😤

    I originally gave this a one star rating but it has improved and I now rate it 3 stars. It still does not recognize commands such as new paragraph. It also does not give me choices If the wrong word is tight .Typed. I don't understand when an app is updated why doesn't it give an improved version but instead updates it to a poorer version. My original text to speech was definitely a 5-star rating.

    I wish this thing would understand me better, I thought that once it is trained it would work properly but that's not my experience. It often has difficulty understanding exactly what I'm speaking. It annoyingly stops listening too soon many times while you're in the middle of speaking. It continues to set itself as the default keyboard, at least on my Coolpad Legacy, everytime a keyboard is needed (and I use three different ones so you might imagine how annoying it is)

  44. Peg Poole-avatar

    February 23rd 2021 this was always the app that I could count on to work until now. With the recent update it now will not give you an auto correction choice and also will not go to new paragraph when I tell it to. It also cuts off so I'm typing this! So with the new update this app is useless Now! You actually pay people to come up with these updates.

    I'm referring to Google text to speech engine on my Pixel/Android. There seems to be a bug. I'm not sure what triggers it. I think when multiple applications are using the engine, the bug might get triggered. Normally, it seems to work fine though. But recently, my battery was very hot, and was being drained quickly. Android "battery usage" was reporting the text to speech engine as the culprit, and by far, the biggest drain on my battery. I killed it. Now it's working fine again, so far.

    I always used the text-to-speech that came with my Samsung. Out-of-the-blue that disappeared and Google text took over. It is no way comparable to the Samsung o p t i o n. You can tell right there where I was forced to spell the word. It has absolutely no referencing as far as popular famous people or even regularly used people on YouTube. Unbelievable that Google can now simply take over when it chooses to.

    So one day the app went back to its original state and functioned beautifully. It worked great for several days, then as I was in the middle of dictating an email, it updated again. Now cuts off randomly instead of letting me continue to speak. It seems to have resolved the capital letter Randomness, or maybe not, but it lost the drop-down list for correcting and you must go back in and manually make Corrections which is really annoying. Why can't they leave a good thing alone?

    This app was great 2 years ago, but every update since then it's gotten more glitchy, it doesn't recognize common words it doesn't recognize capitalization anymore, and half the time it just says initializing and then drops out saying it can't reach Google. Leave it alone or fix it so that it works! (And yes I typed this out because the Text to Speech failed when I tried to leave the review...😒)

    With the recent update it's so damn slow it's not worth using. When you ask a question the answer in slow motion, I wish I could fix this!! Also when asking a question many times I have to wait for the delayed start then talk slow just to be understood. I'm hoping an update will fix this very soon. Used to be very dependable!!

    I don't know what happened to this app, but it has been horrible the last couple days. It cuts me off mid-sentence, even at the slightest hesitation between words. It used to offer suggestions of alternatives to what was said, by clicking on the text. Going to use another TTS engine. This is not worth the frustration.

  55. Jamie Dottery-avatar

    Perhaps the Google Team is still learning 'How to Speak,' prior to answering phones or addressing account issues? It's obvious that the Google Software Development Team and their Network Security Team are in need of education, because they need to learn how to work with language and communication issues. Perhaps that would help them to rethink their choice to leave 'The Public' in charge of R&D without pay, and an unintelligent, ill-IT-I-rate Bot', in control of user accounts & device settings?

    voice to text works fairly well, it seems to be better than most others, it should integrate itself into word also that would make it so much easier as well as the email programs. You changed the back button from the right side of the tap to pause and microphone screen to the left, making it much more difficult to use, there's no reason why you had to move it and you should put it back it makes it more difficult to use and type with. Give people the option to where to put it, you already had it

    I want to Uninstall because I never use apps that garble things. I turn off "autofail" which is called auto correct - but it doesn't correct and often garbles my words. Hell - I actually do know how to articulate, spell, and use grammar. I don't need "assistance" and I NEVER use my phone when I'm driving, so text to speech or speech to text is completely useless to me. I want to Uninstaller- not just disable. And NO I do not want to update!!!! Bloatware.

    Horrible. It is so egregiously horrible, that it has now turned in to a drinking game, vs an essential tool. Also, I do believe some of this is do to the region I live in & the dialect. I may not have a very thick dialect, just a hint, BUT it still seems to be worthless. I can't even imagine what individuals, who are native to this part of the country must go through. Google really NEEDS to integrate/incorporate some sort of recognition component, that is sensitive to/can identify regionality.

  59. Viv-avatar



    DO NOT UPDATE! While many of these moronic 1 star reviews complain about STT, not TTS, the legit 1 star reviews are true. Last time I updated TTS, it broke it. It just happened AGAIN. TTS switches from one voice to a different voice in the middle of a book, even of a page. Speeds up/slows down randomly, like an old cassette tape about to die. Even in the middle of paragraphs, even the middle of sentences. I'm uninstalling entirely to get the stock version back. Hope it works bc this sucks.

  60. Linda DeVries-avatar

    Linda DeVries


    I really have to start reading the most recent reviews before updating apps. After the recent update the app is essentially USELESS. Exits before you finish speaking so you have to open it again, doesn't recognize the simplest words, and the drop down menu for corrections is gone so you have to exit and correct manually. Garbage. Would give it zero stars if I could. 👎

    Since March 1st this voice to text has been horrible. Before then as I was using voice to text if I had a word as in sell or sale it would allow me a list of Corrections to do while I'm still talking. Now I have to keep backspacing saying it again and again. And usually that does not work so I have to correct it manually then then start voice to text again. This is a real mess and if I ever find out some other way to do this besides Google anything I will do so

    I continue to be astonished at the ever increasing accuracy and reliability of this app; it learns my vocabulary and style with every use. Ok, so it often needs corrections; but what a time saver and it learns from your corrections, continuously learning with every use. I'm becoming visually impaired in my waning years and this app is essentially, priceless.

    Barely understands what it's said. When I say "past verb of bet" it types "bat", & when I say my main language (English), it types the 2nd one (Portuguese) instead so I have to put on airplane mode most of the time to understand the main language only. It'd be nice if u update it to work with a language independently & have a switch button for others (right in the front panel). Also every time I say something a space is inserted b4, & the 1st word of the sentence is never capilized. Hope u fix

    Absolutely horrible, half the time when I say, it actually writes the word comma. I wish I could revert to the previous version and this thing keeps turning off after every word absolutely horrible Google you should be ashamed of yourself for putting such a inferior app out really disheartening how come I can't revert to the previous version which would actually give me options of other words when I would say to as in t o and it would make a number to I could tap on that number too and it would

    Terrible since last update. Misses words, shuts off halfway through your dictation, freezes up,. Was working great before and had predictive text, now it does not. I just had to restart it again. You people need to fix whatever you screwed up.

    Doesn't work!!! Does nothing. Except play sample sentence based on voice preferences. Followed google play app instructions on how to use & my gal s7 doesn't have a all the steps available in settings to be able to use. It is supposed 2 read whatever is on my screen such as books, emails, but there is no app button to open or anyway to direct it to an open text screen I want read thank God I didn't buy those kindle or google books, just dwnlded samples! Bc as usual Samsung Galaxy s7 Sucks!

    Really like it. Please fix this problem this is why I gave it 5 stars. Not so much as five stars I only gave it 1. Please. This is noted for the worst. The United Kingdom one sounds so cool but coma at least of the people wanted to go back to The Way It Used To Be. Or nice, and none corrupted. This is a warning if you don't fix it I'm not going to cause any more easily. This app is no longer supporting five stars. And it's so bad now that the voice is sounding so weird call Mum this is my favour

    It's okay seems to get better as you use it but it does mess up quite a bit with people that use it like me I get a lot of flack about it now punctuations things like that when you're literated should do that it's a text to speech app right can't read it you don't know where they go because you don't know one sentences ends and one begins so it should be able to do that but it doesn't

    Because I drive for my job. Every time there's an update it seems like it starts from scratch all your saved stuff is lost. Also at this time saying enter, new line, or new paragraph is not working. You must look at device and manually hit enter to get a new line or type everything in a giant single paragraph. Not good for business!

    My rating for the Google Text-to-Speech app has deteriorated over time. It hesitates to recognize the simplest of words, and now doesn't offer the option to go back and correct forcing me to type the correct word. Which diminishes the purpose of the application

    Marilyn Mccord


    This app continually capitalizes words that it should not capitalize. It also mis- translates about one out of every three words I say. Sometimes I just have to rely on spelling the word out for the voice to text. An example is me saying the word 'than' and the voice-to-text putting in the name 'Dan'. It's unbelievably annoying. I wish it would not capitalize anything unless I tell it to do so. Updated 2/1/2021. It's now even worse for both capitalization and punctuation.

    Works generally quite well I find it really annoying however when in the middle of text-to-speech Google maps will issue navigation instruction this will be captured by text-to-speech very difficult so hands-free while driving having to correct or time please look into this. I am however otherwise very satisfied with the application, kudos to all involved in development and delivery

    It was great until the recent update. I had to roll back the update because now the voice is inconsistent. It keeps shifting the tone, and not in an accurate way. Tone shifting is also achieved by altering pitch that makes it feel as if two or three different people are speaking. This is simply unacceptable, especially when the network versions of the same voice produce consistent speech. Please fix the local versions of the voices to match the network versions, at least in consistency.

    Handy tool. Makes texting, e-mailing, google searches etc easier. It isn't as accurate as I need it to be. Many times, it misunderstands what I am saying & I have to go back & correct it. Also, can we give it a command to indent, skip a line, double space lines, or to start a new paragraph?? That would be very beneficial & save time having to go back & correct these things. Overall, great concept... Just a couple small improvements to make it even better.

    Once again everything is all messed up. For the past couple of weeks the old platform had returned whenever I was typing through my keyboard, but now using text-to-speech I have to completely go back to the keyboard to correct anything and Google Text-to-Speech is making tons of mistakes all over again. Please put this app back to the way it was before!

    The app was good until the last update. Now it is wrong most of the time and VERY intrusive. Once it's on, it doesn't like to turn off. Also, it doesn't do word suggestions anymore.

    would be nice if we could have more options. make the tts read everything in small letters for one, some authors write in allcaps for parts of their work and the engine goes stupid. very simple to do but no option for it. another easy addition is to make the engine stop "assuming" abbreviations and such. For example it keeps reading Tel as telephone when it's a fantasy currency. It also always read I as one when certain words precede it. It's wrong most of the time.

  87. Rebiv4-avatar



    Even when spoken clearly, some words come out completely wrong and that is with the case off in the microphone clearly visible and my voice as loud as it can get around other people or by myself. Some work still needs to be done in order for this application to anticipate what is going to be said by the person who is speaking. That would make things a lot easier. I find myself having to go back and delete and type manually too many times a day.

    This app is useless it used to be activated on the keyboard that comes with your phone now it's a giant great big square that takes up half of your phone screen. On top of that you have to go out of it into the keyboard back each time you need to manually fix something typed. And Samsung's keyboard is way better than yours. Gboard does not come close to being as good as theirs. I uninstalled it and ended up installing gboard against my better judgment or will just to get a proper voice app

  89. Patriotgames-avatar



    I used to love this app. Recently, though, something changed. It used to be that I could pause in the middle of a sentence or a phrase and the app would understand that it was not the beginning of a new sentence. Now, however, if I'm thinking on my feet and pause for even a couple of seconds, the next word begins with a capital letter. And if I don't say the word period immediately, without any pause at all, then the period is one space after the last word. Why did they change an excellent app?

    so I'm not really happy with Google text to speak right now I never really had problems with it until now it is not auto correcting words When I voice text I do mostly all my texting by voice text but it doesn't make sense to do it now because Google doesn't seem to be recognizing my words and it's not correcting them I don't have that option anymore maybe someone here knows what I'm talking about and help me out

    It's a good screen reader and can read everything. The only problem is that when I update it, the tone of the voices goes down. Could you probably try to fix the voices and also give them names? And could you also maybe take it off iOS because they already have a screen readeracalled Voiceover?

    This app doesn't pick up what I say unless I scream. If I say, "period", instead of inserting a period, it writes the word. I hate this app. can I uninstall it without ruining something else? It's not worth the four seconds it takes to open it.

    I hate this app i don't get what is wrong with it whenever I want to chat on WhatsApp with it my samsung keyboard doesn't have a place to click the new paragraph stuff but then I use the Google text speech by said new paragraph really fast and it does Now I'm doing it and it isn't working it either misheard me or it just doesn't respond so I'm very confused and annoyed I even tried downloading the Google keyboard the new paragraph stuff doesn't work there also

    Google and their dangerously politically correct biased metric have crippled the usefulness of this TTS for some words and phrases and not others which appear in text and speech that had not been 'sanitized' by the leftist goosesteppers that run Google who now seek to erase any and all speech and words that do not comport with their aggressive anti free speech and free thought agenda. Orwell was right and Big Tech IS Big Brother.

    Why are earth can't you people at Google Security see that these text to speech apps are the primary area for exploits and you need to place special attention on these text to speech apps because I found 3 embedded in this Chromebook 13.

    So I used to use this feature all the time on my LG I switch to a Samsung a 20 and Now I can't even use it ! There was always a little icon on the bottom right Of the Screen In order to select what you wanted To be read and now it's nowhere to be found I can't even get it to work at all ! I'd given zero Stars if I could considering all it's doing is taking up space on my phone And can't be used ! Very disappointing because I always used it Now have a nice new phone and can't

    Because I can't give it 0 stars or negative. This app, like most things Google SUCKS! It loaded itself without my knowledge or consent and replaced a perfectly functioning text-to-speech engine. Google is not satisfied unless it interjects itself into every aspect of our lives so it can monitor, collect, and profit from personal data without a seach warrant or probable cause. The prior app automatically went from English to other languages that were selected in the app.

    Would totally give 5 🌟 due to the love I have for this when I'm too busy to type, but seems always when using for text & sometimes even on Google search, that it lags alot! I usually have to pause to let it catch up typing my words & due to that seems to always misspell my words as well! & I have 5g & mostly at home always connected to Xfinity X-fi so super speed internet plus my phone is S20 Ultra! So very new with fast internet usage I feel shouldn't have this issue

    It's good except that for some reason it always uses the default voice when it is first used after a while of inactivitiy, then uses my selected one after that. I can trigger this even use the test button in settings, press it once and the wrong voice comes out. Press it again and the right one does. Very annoying.

    Text-to-speech is great if you are slow at texting or if you have trouble writing. Most of the time text-to-speech matches up with my voice , and when it doesn't match , corrections are provided . The only real downside for me is it doesn't capitalize after each period.

    Mind of its own. Capitalizing words that don't need it, improperly hearing what is clearly said and typing the wrong thing over and over.

    Great! - When It Works. It usually doesn't. About 1/3 of what I say is accurate. The rest, rhymes with what I actually said if I'm lucky. The rest is nonsense. I don't speak multiple languages or long-winded notes - which makes it even worse.

    Suddenly Google text to speech has defaulted on my Samsung keyboard when I had Samsung voice texting Now that I deactivate the Google Voice to text, when I come on to the play store to try to voice dictate what I'm looking for, it does not allow the Samsung text to speech to be used. The same with YouTube. I would leave it set to Google text to speech if it were not for the annoying chime that makes noise even when I have the volume turned off.

    Does not work. Stops in between while reading. Doesn't pronounce anything properly. Skips some words and numbers and all symbols. This app's AI is stupid. No speed customization. No other important features are available, like the ones Microsoft Immersive Reader has.

    I cannot hear Cantonese speech but Mandarin after Cantonese (Hong Kong) language was selected on Text to Speech setting on my Moto G Power phone. The robot play demo speech in TTS setting was speaking out in Mandarin during play test even the testing speech wordings confirmed the settings was already set to Cantonese on TTS settings. The demo play speech was finally changed to Cantonese after language detection was set to conservative or off. The speech on Play Books was still in Mandarin.

    I can live with the occasional capitalization of words that shouldn't be capitalized, but it now not only ignores inserted punctuations but will not indent for a new paragraph or new line. it will also start a sentence without capitalization which is ridiculous.

To many languages on one app It can't spell . My is mi an unknown word Making it type faster does not solve the problems Try using English speaking people to program English Canadian for Canadians Indian people for Indian languages It's like a Chinese person trying to spell English it's A joke
