Can I make Google Nest say something?

I have made a scenario that summarizes my upcoming google calendar events using chatgpt. Now I want to make my Google Nest device say it every morning. Is there any way to do this, or any work arounds?

There is a way, but it’s far from easy

Google Nest (or Home) devices can be Chromecast destinations. So if you had a Text To Speech (TTS) engine, you could do this in theory.

But here’s the catch - the sending node must be on your local network. You can’t send audio to Google Home from the internet.

Some Home Automation servers (openHAB, Home Assistant) can do this, but setting one of those up just for this would likely be overkill.
