Truecaller partnered with Microsoft to release the Personal Voice feature from Microsoft Azure AI Speech in Truecaller, which will allow consumers to record a few seconds of their own voices to create digital voices while setting up Truecaller Assistant.

Truecaller's AI Assistant, first introduced in September 2022, already incorporates a multitude of AI technologies that can automatically answer phone calls, screen calls, take messages, respond on users' behalf, or record the call for later viewing. With the addition of Microsoft Azure AI Speech's Personal Voice, users of the Truecaller Assistant can now create completely digital versions of their own voices to use inside the Assistant. Users who already have Assistant on the Truecaller app can have callers hear a replicated and authentic version of their voices instead of one of the many digital assistants available.

"By integrating Microsoft Azure AI Speech's personal voice capability into Truecaller, we've taken a significant step toward delivering a truly personalized and engaging communication experience. The personal voice feature allows our users to use their own voice, enabling the digital assistant to sound just like them when handling incoming calls. This groundbreaking capability not only adds a touch of familiarity and comfort for the users but also showcases the power of AI in transforming the way we interact with our digital assistants," said Raphael Mimoun, product director and general manager of Truecaller Israel, in a statement. "We're thrilled to collaborate with Microsoft on this exciting project and leverage their expertise in text-to-speech and AI technologies. The seamless integration process and the exceptional support provided by the Microsoft team have been instrumental in bringing this feature to life"
