Google Home equalizer paves way for the big Max

The search giant announced the feature in a blog post, explaining that users will be able to broadcast everyday messages like waking up, calling for dinnertime, and other announcements to notify family or friends with the help of Assistant. In other words, some of Ecobee's devices can now be voice controlled via Goole Assistant so you can check and adjust your home temperature, for instance.

Google has issued an update which enables users with Google Assistant to broadcast messages via Google Home speakers, thus helping the latter to double up as an intercom system within one's residence or office. 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. Just say, "Ok Google, Broadcast/shout/tell everyone/announce message ". You can use this broadcasting capability to tell the kids it's time to head out to the school bus in the morning, for example.

Whilst some users may be aware that Google keeps copies of audio clips when a user engages with its voice assistant, recent reports reveal that background voices (or chatter) could be enough to trigger a recording.
