Google Assistant has a male voice, here are the details

One of the major breakthroughs of this endeavour is the innovative voice match feature that allows the Assistant to build a DNA of sorts of individual voices based on the pitch, tonality, diction, and other voice signatures. The latter replaces the default feminine voice with one that is deeper.

The more likely explanation at this stage is that Google is looking to emphasise the "Made By Google" moniker, and, since it hasn't actually outright "made" a smartwatch, the LG pairing don't fit with the rest of the Store's line. Now available on nearly all of Google's different devices and platforms, not to mention integrating with third-party platforms, it has the potential to become what pundits and even conspiracists have been looking for: Google OS.
