Google Assistant to now broadcast messages for you

When you tell Assistant, "OK Google, broadcast it's dinnertime", a bell will ring across the connected devices.

Google has earlier revealed that it would finally let users broadcast messages through Google Home devices with the help of Google Assistant.

Beginning on Tuesday, people will be able to broadcast their voice through Google Assistant on their smartphones or voice-activated Google Assistant-enabled speakers such as Google Home.

You can now use your Google Home devices as an intercom system. Will you be using this feature?

One can broadcast messages through the Google Assistant on his smart home appliances.

"We're excited to work with ecobee to offer Google Assistant users even more choice in managing and controlling their home environments", said Mark Spates, Google Product Manager.

The feature which will be rolled out to the US, Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom initially, will work from anywhere with a cell connection, The Verge reported. The basic requirement for the broadcast are two or more Google Home or Home minis on the same WiFi network.

The new feature, which Google announced today in a blog post, seems mostly designed for families (which makes sense). This will transmit the message to the user on their Google Home.

"Now you don't have to wear out your voice shouting up the stairs". Subsequently, every speaker synced to the user's account will broadcast the message.

All you have to do is say, "Ok Google, broadcast it's time for school" and then all the speakers and phones will hear that message (well, provided they're already awake of course).

The new speakers are arriving in Australia, Canada, U.K, and lastly the U.S. This new function will help families and make sending message through the home easy. The support for more languages will be added soon.
