Communicate around the house with the Google Assistant

14 Ноября 2017

It's basically pushed a Google Assistant upgrade that lets you broadcast your voice to every Google Home speaker or Google Assistant-enabled device - using either another speaker or your smartphone.

One of the cooler features announced at this year's October 4th event was a broadcast feature that turned Google Home into an intercom-like system.

The company says for everyday announcements like waking up, dinner or getting ready for bed, Assistant can send a playful message for you. There are special effects for some things - if you say "Ok Google, broadcast it's dinner time" a dinner bell will ring on all your Google Homes. Of course, you'll have to be signed into the same Google account in order for this cross-functionality to work. Do Not Disturb must be off, as well. Users can say "Ok Google, broadcast [x]" to either Assistant on their phone or another speaker and have that custom message parroted out. You don't even have to be home to broadcast; the feature will work from anywhere with a cell connection, which is a nice touch. Google Assistant will now amplify your voice across any room in your household (provided that room has a voice-activated speaker in it).

Do you have to say "broadcast"?

The new feature starts rolling out today if you use English in the US, Australia, Canada, and the UK.

While that sounds a little weird, it'll definitely be a useful feature to many people.
