ITT: People who didn’t read the article and freaking out.

The article gives step by step of what happens in order for this to occur. And it involves the “hacker” being in close proximity, forcing google home to disconnect from network, adding the google home to their own account, and then calling the device which has visual cues that’s the device is in a call.

Given that the infiltrator has to be physically present I don’t think it’s that big of a deal. No one would actually do this if they had malicious intent, they would just set up their own listening devices if the wanted to hear inside your home.
