This means a user who is not at home can send reminders to people with the help of Google Assistant which in turn is broadcast via the Home.

As mentioned, Google had announced in October that users with Google Assistant will soon broadcast messages via Google Home devices - while launching the Google Home Mini and Google Home Max alongside, giving users more Google-branded smart speaker options to populate their house with.

Unlike Amazon's family of Echo speakers, the broadcast feature is a one-way system, meaning it can't be used as a two-way home intercom.

Once in the Devices tab, you'll see a list of supported partners with a new entry for ecobee. "And now, your Google Assistant is getting in on the game", Google writes.

All devices must be signed onto the same Wi-Fi network, and at least one member of the household has to be signed in to each of the Google Home speakers. Just say, "Ok Google, Broadcast/shout/tell everyone/announce message ". It is appealing to finally have an object which listens to you and does as you say.

This will let users broadcast messages through voice commands, no matter from where you access the Assistant.

Tallking about the new update in a blog post, Alex Duong, Product Manager at Google Home and Nam Do, Software Engineer at Google Assistant said: "For certain everyday things like waking up, dinnertime or settling down for bed, the Assistant can also send a playful message on your behalf".

Since introducing the world's first smart thermostat in 2009, ecobee has enabled consumers to control their home comfort any time and from anywhere while reducing energy use. In other words, the NVIDIA Spot just relays information to you wherever it's plugged. Once done, the message will be played on all the devices tied to the account. The update is rolling out to users in the U.S., Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom with Homes set to English.
