Any 2021 updates to voice/broadcast notifications via Google Hubs?

I've seen a few post from 2019 & 2020 regarding TTS vs Broadcasting to Google Hub devices.

TTS appears to bring up a "Casting" app and does not resume what video/steam/music that was previously playing. I'm hoping there is a way to broadcast to select devices.

There was a post in April from @embrito that described the need well.

  1. Not interrupt whatever is playing (instead, pause and continue after announcement is complete).
  2. Play some sort of sounds effect before the announcement (like in the airports) so your brain gets "triggered" and focus on it.
