I've had home for 4 months, two chromecasts and 2 home minis in the network. I've just upgraded from Samsung S7 to S9, moved all my apps over and now Broadcast function no longer works. I hit the button in the app and all it does is take me to a google home page with search bar at top and news stories in the page. I unlinked the devices, deleted home and reset it up. Same problem for me but now my wife also can't broadcast although she can type out a message in broadcast on the app but it doesn't actually broadcast anymore when it says it is. Any advice welcome.

I am having a similar issue. I have one mini in the BR, and the HUB in kitchen. I can send a broadcast from the mini room and it goes to the hub, but NOT vice versa. There are no DND's/Wellness settings on the mini.  I rebooted the mini and also unlinked, and it still won't recieve a broadcast. I will try a hard reset next, but this is annoying me to no end!!  What am I missing??

I've just done a full reset, worked out that when I hit broadcast it now takes my to Google Assistant not to Broadcast. Plus when I ask Home a question, it sends.the answer to my old phone, even though I've signed out on that device and deleted it from google.

Hello Everyone,
Thanks for all your feedback. For now, you can only send a message to everyone in your home by broadcasting messages using your Google Home devices and or Google Assistant app on your phone. Just make sure that you are using same account on all of your devices. To learn more about broadcasting, please visit our support website. Here's the link: https://support.google.com/googlehome/answer/7531913?hl=en.
Hope this helps.
