Male voice?

I just did a lesson (in the Arts skill) and some of the sentences were pronounced by a (quite slow) male voice.

Is this something new or have I simply missed it?

I noticed it as well! It just appeared today for me so I imagine it must be fairly new.

Yes, I just noticed that in one of the other exercises too. Interesting... I know that the Danes are very big on "ligestilling" :)

I suspect it is still in A/B testing. I gather quite a few people are hearing him, but I am yet to.

I’m hearing him now! He is so much more natural than old voice. The way I got it to work was by logging out of the website and app, then removing and downloading the app again.

I noticed that a few days ago and while I would have been glad to have this when I started the course, I now find this voice almost painfully slow.

I'm working through the Questions skill (going for my fourth crown in that skill), and I heard the male voice more than the familiar female one!
