1. A method comprising:operating a group communication service for facilitating user communications within a plurality of communication groups, including coordinating communications between a plurality of communication nodes associated with a plurality of users in each communication group, the method comprising:
receiving, at the group communication service via a network, a spoken message from a communication node in a communication group, the spoken message associated with the control of a networked device;
determining, at the group communication service, that the spoken message is directed to a logic service;
responsive to determining that the spoken message is directed to the logic service, translating, at the group communication service, the spoken message into an input message in a data format corresponding to the logic service;
transferring, from the group communication service, the input message to the logic service for processing by the logic service;
receiving, at the group communication service, status information from the logic service indicative of a status of the networked device; and
sending, from the group communication service, an audible announcement to the communication nodes in the communication group expressive of the status of the networked device.
