From June 13th 2023, Google Actions (Conversational Actions) will no longer be available. So listeners will not be able to tune into radio stations via Google Nests or Google Assistant on smart devices. Sadly, no viable alternatives are available for broadcasters to get their station on Google Smart speakers or Google Assistant devices from this date.
We suggest you contact Google direct to find out what other functions will no longer be available through your Google devices.
What about FM & DAB?
You’re not the first person to ask that! Unfortunately, Ofcom (the government agency which regulates radio) is no longer issuing FM licences as all stations will move to digital platforms in the future. Occasionally, Ofcom issues low powered community radio stations with FM frequencies but these can only be heard for a small distance. As for DAB, we are hoping this will be an option in the future as there may be some small scale licenses for our area available, and this is something we are definitely working towards.
