Google Home broadcast turns the Assistant into a PA

What's new is "your Google Assistant is getting in on the game".

As of yesterday, Google updated the Assistant on your Google Home speakers and phone with a feature that will let you broadcast to all other speakers in the house. Using the ok Google command through their smartphones or Google Home speakers, users can raise the temperature, lower the temperature, and perform other tasks or requests, though ecobee doesn't explicitly mention all of the supported actions that can be initiated. With the help of this update, one can use the Google Home devices as an intercom system. Here's everything you need to know about how the feature works.

Toronto-based ecobee has announced their smart thermostats now support Google Assistant, letting users control them with Google's voice assistant. That said the wait is now over and anyone who may have held off on a device like the Google Home or an ecobee thermostat can confidently purchase either or both knowing that they will work together.

GameStop Pauses Unlimited Used Games Program
When Kotaku reached out to GameStop about the suspension, the company said "program limitations" were largely to blame. Those stores have been told to pull all promotional materials related to the PowerPass , according to Kotaku .

The feature is now available in the US, Australia, Canada and the UK.

In addition to checking the temperature, you can also cycle through your thermostat's comfort settings (away, home, and sleep) and tell it to heat up or cool down a room.

A new Google Assistant broadcast update has arrived on the Google Home, which makes the goal of a home device as it should be.

So, you "just say "Ok Google, broadcast it's dinner time" and a dinner bell will ring on all your Google Homes". Subsequently, every speaker synced to the user's account will broadcast the message. So, if you need to round up the family or your co-workers in the morning, all you have to do is say "OK Google, broadcast it's time for school" or "OK Google, broadcast it's time for a meeting". Support for more languages will be coming soon, Google added.

Google even built in a couple of fun (but useful) features to this effect.
