Broadcast your voice to Google speakers around your house with Google Assistant

By

If you have more than one Google voice-activated speaker like Google Home in your house, you can now use Google Assistant to broadcast your voice to send house-wide messages.

A new blog post entitled "Communicate around the house with the Google Assistant" has been published by Google Home Product manager, Alex Duong, and Google assistant software engineer Nam Do.

In it, we're told that "from dinner bells to shouting, attempting to gather the family from around the house is nothing new".

What's new is "your Google Assistant is getting in on the game".

Starting today, Google's dynamic duo tell us that "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."

We're told that, "for certain everyday things like waking up, dinnertime or settling down for bed, the Assistant can also send a playful message on your behalf".

So, you "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.

"And if you’re just leaving the office, you can let your family know you’re coming with a simple “Ok Google, broadcast I’m on my way home!” to the Assistant on your phone, and it will broadcast to your Google Homes.

"To ensure that broadcasting works across all your devices, make sure you’re signed in with the same Google Account.

"Broadcasting starts rolling out today to the Assistant on phones and speakers set to English language in the US, Australia, Canada and the UK, with more languages coming soon," both Google employees conclude.
