Anybody who's been enjoying TikTok for the past year has undoubtedly become familiar with that ubiquitous, female text-to-speech voice.
You've heard her sounding out those words that are captioned across countless TikTok videos. Sounding slightly like a robot, she reads the caption aloud with either no emotion whatsoever, or a tone totally not relevant to the bizarre content in the video itself.
But in the past week, TikTokers have been forced to get used to a brand new female voice reading those captions.
According to Insider, the change came after Beverly Standing, who provided the original text-to-speech voice, sued TikTok's parent company ByteDance. Standing has claimed the company used recordings of her voice without permission.
But TikTok users are apparently not so interested in the legal dynamics of the switch.
Instead, they've latched on to the unexpected tone the new female text-speech-voice says the age-old phrase, "Deez Nuts."
