I have been using the broadcast feature for a number of years with no issue until recently.
When I say, "Broadcast: [message]", it works fine and broadcasts the message to all devices.
However, when I say, "Broadcast to [specific device]", the response I get is "OK, pausing [specific device]".
I know Assistant is not mis-hearing what I am saying because I can see it correctly transcribed on the screen.
I further tested this out and see that it is happening with 3 of my speakers, but the 4th one is not having an issue.
@MikeClark, thanks for the help.
@rhynole, thanks for reaching out. This is not the experience that we wanted you to have, let me help you out. You can check the my activity section on your Google Home app to confirm what your Google assistant heard. Check these steps.
Check Google Assistant activity history
Which Nest speakers/displays are we working with? What troubleshooting steps have you taken so far? You can do a sequential reboot. First, unplug your affected Nest speakers/displays for 30 seconds, then do the same thing to your Wi-Fi router to refresh both devices and your Wi-Fi signal.
Looking forward to your response.
