How to broadcast voice messages to your Google Home speakers

Share

A little over a year ago, Google launched its sole smart speaker to market.

Users with Google Assistant can now send broadcasts, a message to people who have the Assistant in their Google Home through the Google Assistant on their phones.

Just use Google Assistant on your smartphone to send messages to a Google Assistant-enabled device.

If you have Google Assistant on your phone, you can now shout out a message to all your Google Home speakers, allowing families to get their kids out of bed or remind granny to pick up the phone.

All the Google Home devices must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network and be running firmware version 1.26.93937 or higher.

Swagger's catchphrase "We the People!" raised his profile, but earlier this year, he asked for his release from the company. The 35-year-old Hager has spent the last 11 years under the WWE and its affiliated developmental territories.

The update, which is rolling out now, means that you can essentially use Google Home speakers as an in-home intercom system to relay messages, even if you're not in the same location as the speaker. You can say, "Okay Google, broadcast dinner is ready", for example, to make a "dinner bell" sound through your Google Home.

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

Broadcasting is now rolling out to Google Assistant on phones and Google Home speakers set to English language in the US, Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom, with more languages coming soon, according to Google.

This useful feature is rolling today to the Assistant on phones and speakers set to the English language in the U.S., Australia, Canada and the U.K. More languages are coming soon. The iPhone X, Apple's most recent flagship, includes Face ID, a feature that is expected to be incorporated into all of the company's 2018 iPhones.
