Google Home trick lets you 'broadcast' messages from your phone

Google Home trick lets you 'broadcast' messages from your phone

A command like "Ok Google, broadcast it's dinner time" will sound a dinner bell across your speakers. So the next time you need to get everyone out of the house and over to the grandparents' for dinner, simply say, "OK Google, broadcast it's time to leave", and that message will be broadcast to every Assistant-enabled speaker in your household.

"To ensure that broadcasting works across all your devices, make sure you're signed in with the same Google Account". The broadcasting feature will be soon released in Google Assistants of both Google Home and the phone.

To broadcast from one Google Home device to others, you will need to have at least two devices, which can be a combination of Google Home and Google Home Mini.

Starting Tuesday, people can broadcast their voice from Google Assistant on smartphones or voice-activated speakers like Google Home.

The message that you broadcast will play on all Google Home devices that are signed into the same Google Account. To use it, say something like "Ok Google, broadcast it's time for school!" Today, that feature is finally rolling out to Assistant devices, including phones and speakers.

You might have had a home intercom system if you grew up between the 70s and 80s, and that's exactly the kind of functionality Broadcast offers.

"Now you don't have to wear out your voice shouting up the stairs".
