Google Assistant Speakers Now Have A New Broadcast Messaging Feature

The new feature should ideally work with the Google Assistant-enabled smart speakers from third-party manufacturers as well, but Google hasn't made it clear at this point.

"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".

If you want to broadcast from your phone to Google home, you need to open up Google Assistant on your phone and say "Broadcast I'm on the way home".

Earlier this year, Amazon rolled out the ability to it's Alexa assistant to use their speakers as a way of communicating around your home, in the form of an intercom system.

Once in the Devices tab, you'll see a list of supported partners with a new entry for ecobee. The voice message will then be sent to all Google Assistant-enabled speakers in the house that are associated with the user.

The feature is now available in the US, Australia, Canada and the UK.

"Today's announcement continues our commitment to offer Google Assistant users some of the most innovative smart home technology on the market".

"Now you don't have to wear out your voice shouting up the stairs". Now the time has finally arrived when one can use this technology. Basically, the formula here is to follow "OK Google, broadcast" with your message after. After that, it'll play on every other speaker that's linked to the same Google account. This means that one can send a message remotely and make sure that it is delivered to all the other devices.

Broadcasting is now available to Assistant on phones and speakers with English language settings in the United States, Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom.

Recently, Google taught Assistant more than 50 new family-friendly games, stories, and activities.
