Truecaller and Microsoft join forces to innovate AI voice technologies.

Truecaller announced a partnership with Microsoft to utilise the new Personal Voice technology from Microsoft Azure AI Speech.

Raphael Mimoun, Product Director & General Manager at Truecaller Israel, said, “By integrating Microsoft Azure AI Speech’s personal voice capability into Truecaller, we’ve taken a significant step towards delivering a truly personalised 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.”

“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,” Raphael added.

“Thanks to Microsoft’s Azure AI, the personal voice feature will revolutionise the way our users manage their calls and elevate their overall experience with Truecaller Assistant. We look forward to further exploring the potential of AI-powered voice technologies in partnership with Microsoft and delivering even more innovative solutions to our global user base,” Raphael concluded.

With the addition of Microsoft Azure AI Speech’s Personal Voice, users of the Truecaller Assistant can now create a completely digital version of their own voice to use inside the Assistant. This means that if you already have Assistant on your Truecaller app, you can have your callers hear a replicated and authentic version of your voice instead of one of the many digital assistants on offer.

Truecaller is the early access partner for Personal Voice and a working demo for this new feature has just been showcased at the Microsoft Build conference in Seattle.

With the new Personal Voice feature from Microsoft Azure AI Speech in Truecaller, consumers will be able to record a few seconds of their own voice to create a digital voice, 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 for you, screen calls, take messages, respond on your behalf, or record the call for your later viewing.
