Google Home can now be used as an intercom with Broadcast feature

Google Home can now be used as an intercom with Broadcast feature”

Last month, Google announced that users with Google Assistant would be able to broadcast messages via Google Home devices, and now that time is here.

For certain everyday things like waking up, dinnertime or settling down for bed, the Assistant can also send a playful message on your behalf. So when you need to round up the family in the morning, just say "Ok Google, broadcast it's time for school!" and your message will broadcast to all Assistant enabled speakers in your home. All these Google Home devices have to be on the same Wi-Fi network, and at least one member of your household has to sign into their Goole account on each of the Google Home devices.

For example, you can say "Ok, Google, broadcast it's time for dinner" to get everyone's attention that it's time to eat without having to holler up and down flights of stairs - something every parent has likely had to do once or twice. For example, if you're leaving work, you can say "Ok Google, broadcast I'm on my way home!" from your smartphone, and the message will be sent to your Google Home speakers at home.

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. You can even do this from outside the house; you don't need to be at home to make your voice heard throughout the house.

Where is this feature available?

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