How to change the voice on Google Meet: PC
If you are interested in finding out how to change voice on google meet, this is the place to start: I will dedicate each of the next chapters to the programs that you can safely use to change your voice on Google Meet. It is really very easy to use software, also available at no cost.
For everything to work for the best you will simply have to download them, install them, leave them active in the background and, finally, activate them right on Meet. Here is all explained in detail.
Clownfish Voice Changer (Windows)
The first program that may be right for you is Clownfish Voice Changer. Why exactly this? Simple, because it is, first of all, a completely free software, very light and one of the most complete currently on the PC. It is compatible with all popular versions of Windows (from Vista onwards) and you can use it not only on Meet, but also on many other programs and services that allow you to make calls and video calls, Skype, Discord, Hangouts, TeamSpeak but also others software intended for other purposes, such as Steam.
To download Clownfish Voice Changer on your PC, you simply need to open the official website of the program and click on one of the buttons above which shows the name of your operating system. If on your PC, for example, there is installed Windows 10 64-bitclick on the button 64bit download (64bit VST).
Once the download is complete, open the .exe file got and answer Yup at the Windows authorization request. At this point, press the button Next three consecutive times and finish the setup by pressing on Install, Next And Finish.
Great, now you can start using Clownfish Voice Changer and have fun with the available effects. When you start the program, no type of window will pop up on the screen. This is because the software will automatically activate in the background and you can control it directly from its icon located in thenotification area (near the Windows clock).
To activate or deactivate the program, just click on the icon in question (the pinwheel), which will turn orange if Clownfish is active or gray if the program is off. To access its menu, instead, just right-click on the icon in question.
To set a specific effect for your voice, click on the voice Set Voice Changer from the drop-down menu. To apply one of the available effects, click on the square icons you see: have fun trying them all. You can also add a background sound effect that will distort your voice by clicking on the button Vocoder and selecting one of the different audio signals.
Finally, I recommend that you minimize the sensitivity of the microphone, to minimize the echo effect. To do this, move the marker under the writing Microphone sensitivity at the far right. Also, make sure that the item is not checked in the drop-down menu Listen to the microphone. Finally, always speak at a certain distance from the microphone to reduce the audio feedback effect as much as possible.
Very well! Now start a video conference in Meet and make sure Clownfish is running in the background: the program will immediately start editing your voice. If not, make sure Meet’s audio input is set to voice Communications – Microphone. To do this, on the videoconference screen, click on the icon three dots located at the bottom right and then click on the item Settings. Then go to the tab Audiounder the heading Microphoneand click to select the item Communications – Microphone.
The program also provides you with individual sound effects, such as the sound of a applause or that of one laugh: to play them, click on the item Sound player in the drop-down menu.
Then, in the list, select the one you prefer and play it whenever you want by clicking on the button Play. If you want, you can also assign it the key shortcut Ctrl + F12. It will be fun to hear the fanfare melody when a friend of yours enters the call!
How do you say? Do you like the program I showed you in the previous chapter but would you like to try something else too? No problem, in this case my advice is to give it a try Voicemod.
Also in this case it is an easy to use software, also suitable for poorly performing PCs and really very complete, with many voice filters and a much more modern interface than other similar software. Furthermore, the developers of the program have indicated the latter as particularly suitable, as well as for Google Meet, also for multiplayer games, such as PUBG, Valorant and League of Legends.
The software is available in version base with 7 effects for the voice (every week you will find 7 new ones that can be used to replace the previous ones) and in version Pro with 77 effects and the ability to create them yourself and save them on your PC. The license of this latest version is available in 3 different solutions: 3 months at a total cost of 9 euros, 1 year at 15 and unlimited at 29.
To use Voicemod you will need a PC with 64-bit Windows installed (Windows 7 and up). To proceed with the download of the basic version of the program, connected to its official website and click on the button Get Voicemod Free. When the process is complete, open the .exe file got and answer Yup at the Windows authorization request.
Then select the language and click on the buttons OK And Forward. Then put the check mark on the item I accept the terms of the license agreement and click on the buttons Forward (twice in a row), Install And endto conclude the setup.
Now you can open the program. Before starting to use it, however, you will need to log in, choosing whether to log in with a Discord, Apple, Google or Twitch account. Once this step is complete, click on the button Let’s go! to start.
Very well: now choose yours microphone and yours headphones (or speakers) from the list, clicking on their names, and clicking on the button Go on. Then, for everything to work properly, make sure the switch next to the item Voice changer (bottom) is on. If not, click on it.
Ok, now select one of the available voices by clicking on their icons in the tab Voicebox. Finally, open the tab Settings and set to value 1 or 2 the microphone volume by dragging the indicator on the bar to the left. Also be sure to speak at some distance from the microphone – this will minimize the audio feedback effect.
Now you can finally switch to Google Meet, however, always check before Voicemod is running in the background. From the Meet video conference screen, click on the icon three dots located at the bottom right and then click on the item Settings.
Now, in the tab Audiounder the heading Microphoneclick to select the item Microphone (Voicemod Virtual Audio Device (WDM))finally click on the icon X to close the window.
Perfect, you should now be able to speak with the voice you have selected on the program. Have fun!
