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.

In it, we're told that "from dinner bells to shouting, attempting to gather the family from around the house is nothing new". To use this new feature, users will need to say the usual, "Ok Google" but follow up with "broadcast." along with one of the close to thirty supported phrases.

Google introduced a new feature for Google Assistant that allows you to remotely "broadcast" messages between your phone and a Google Home speaker, or between multiple speakers in the same house.

Speaking to reporters Sunday, Trump said he will make a new announcement on trade when he returns to the United States. Back in April, Duterte's biggest fan, Trump, praised him for "doing an unbelievable job on the drug problem".

For certain everyday things like waking up, dinnertime or settling down for bed, the Assistant can also send a playful message on your behalf.

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.

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. To ensure that broadcasting works across all your devices, make sure you're signed in with the same Google Account.

This new broadcasting feature is rolling out today on Assistant on phones and speakers set to English in Canada, along with the U.S., Australia and the United Kingdom, with support for more languages "coming soon".
