I'm having the same issue on my Note 8. Battery life was garbage after Pie update so I factory reset the phone and reinstalled everything. Since then any home related voice commands have not worked from the phone. Even tried uninstalling and reinstalling Assistant and Home app again. Broadcast button takes me to search instead of asking for message. Saying hey Google broadcast looks up the word broadcast.  :(
Please help.

Welcome to the Google Assistant help community. Try each of the following steps before moving on to the next to see if your Google Assistant issue is resolved:
Turn OFF Alexa or Bixby voice assistant on your Android phone, if equipped, using device user manual.

Does your Android phone have What You Need to use the Google Assistant app?
On your Android phone open Google Assistant app > mini compass icon on the right side of screen > Explore >(3 vertical dots> Settings > tap on your device (phone) > turn ON Google Assistant. If ON, toggle OFF and back ON.
What happens if you turn your Android phone OFF and back ON.
If your Android phone isn't responding when you ask Ok, Google , go to https://support.google.com/assistant/answer/7283669?hl=en&ref_topic=7172845

Check to see if all of your installed apps on Google Play automatically update at https://support.google.com/googleplay/answer/113412?hl=en
Is your Android operating system updated? Open Android Settings > System (or About Phone) > Advanced > System Update > Check for update. If device updates, reboot phone when update is complete.

Check to see if your Android phone has your home address entered at https://support.google.com/assistant/answer/7394009?co=GENIE.Platform%3DAndroid&hl=en

Open Android Settings > Apps > Google (G) app > Permissions > turn ON every choice provided.

I am also experiencing the same issue with a Galaxy s10 5g. The functionality to do voice actions with Google assistant no longer when away from home. I used to be able to broadcast when away from home by voice command or by typing it into the assistant in the home app. Casting to a specific howe device by name also no longer works.
