Google has announced that it has added a new broadcast feature to its Google Assistant enabled devices. The devices include the Google Home, the Home Mini and Home Max. If you have a number of these around your house, you can use them to broadcast messages.
You will also be able to use Google Assistant to send messages to your Home devices when you are not there, for example you could send the message ‘on the way home’ when you leave work.
Starting today, you can broadcast your voice from your Assistant on your phone or voice-activated speaker, like Google Home. So when you need to round up the family in the morning, just say “Ok Google, broadcast it’s time for school!” and your message will broadcast to all Assistant enabled speakers in your home.
For certain everyday things like waking up, dinnertime or settling down for bed, the Assistant can also send a playful message on your behalf. Just say “Ok Google, broadcast it’s dinner time” and a dinner bell will ring on all your Google Homes. Now you don’t have to wear out your voice shouting up the stairs.
