"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 Google Assistant-enabled speakers in your home", Alex Duong, Product Manager, Google Home, said in a blog post.
You can now use your Google Home devices as an intercom system. Meanwhile, devices should be updated to version 1.26.9393 and have Do Not Disturb off. Google does note that anyone, not just Voice Match users, can broadcast a message. This may prove to be a bit hard if it's a smartphone, but at least with Google Home speakers, you can guarantee that. 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.
The message that you broadcast will play on all Google Home devices that are signed into the same Google Account. Rather than yelling or texting them, you can broadcast your voice through Google Home.
