Google Assistant has a male voice, here are the details

Broadcast is a new feature that allows one Google Home device to broadcast a message to the other devices in the home. Some see it as a sign of equality and fairness. In addition, they can ask the Google Assistant to make their home warmer, and the system will automatically adjust their connected Nest Thermostat without requiring users to state a particular target temperature. The latter replaces the default feminine voice with one that is deeper. Google is playing catch up now with new Google Home improvements: aside from including support for your phone number, United Kingdom users will also be able to make phone calls with the Home, with all the U.S. features. The voice match feature will also be launched in all seven countries where Google Assistant is live at the moment. Aside from the Google Home we got back in 2016, we now also have the Google Home Mini, which offers all the features of the regular Google Home in a way smaller package, and the Google Home Max, which has full-blown stereo speakers for an enhanced listening experience.

Apart from improvements in recognising user voice inputs, the Google Assistant also received a major upgrade to how it generates its own speech as well. I should note, however, streaming is not working for me with Android TV devices.
