On the developers' page, Google said: "If you already use TTS and the Speech Services by Google engine, there is nothing to do -- everything will happen behind the scenes as your users will have automatically downloaded the latest update. We have seen a significant side-by-side quality increase with this change, particularly in respect to clarity and naturalness."
"With this upgrade, we will also be changing the default voice in en-US to one that is built using fresher speaker data, which alongside our new stack, results in a drastic improvement. If your users have not selected a system voice, and you rely on system defaults, they will hear a slightly different speaker," it added.
This update will be rolledout to all the 64-bit Android devices through the Google Play Store. The update will react to each user by over the next few weeks, as a part of the Google apk's Speech Services.
