Alongside the Pixel 2, Pixelbook, and all of its other hardware announcements, Google also used its October 4 event to unveil a host of new features coming to its Google Home speakers.
Before you can start broadcasting voice messages, you need two or more Google Home devices (any combination of Google Home or Google Home Mini or Google Home Max). 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.
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. Google says the update is rolling out to the US, Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom now.
Google has customized certain activities like waking up, dinner, and bedtime with a "playful message" and sound. It'll even ring a dinner bell if you say "OK Google, broadcast it's dinner time".
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.
Broadcast is rolling out now to users that have Assistant on their Google Home and phones set to the English language in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia with more languages scheduled to come out "soon".
