The new Broadcasts are available and rolling out on assistant phones and speakers from today, however it may take longer for these services to arrive, because of Google's slower time-frames. Google has already released some phrases that can trigger specific sounds like saying dinner is ready will trigger a dinner bell sound through your smart speakers. Of course, this only works if you have a few devices strewn around your home.
A new Google Assistant broadcast update has arrived on the Google Home, which makes the objective of a home device as it should be.
To send a message, simply say "OK Google, broadcast", followed by whatever you want to say, to a Google Assistant-enabled device, such as Google Home, Google Home Mini, or Google Home Max. One can also let the concerned people know if they are on their way by speaking to the Google Assistant on their phones.
"Broadcasting starts rolling out today to the Assistant on phones and speakers set to English language in the U.S., Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom, with more languages coming soon", both gents conclude.
