I have a home and my son a mini. I can control only the sound level from my app, how can I broadcast etc to the mini?

    Not got a Mini myself, that said, I did find this in the Verge's review of the mini 2 years ago.

    If you want to use the Home Mini to primarily play music, you can wirelessly link it to a larger speaker for better audio quality. But it only supports Cast-enabled speakers, whether that’s built in or enabled by a connected Google Cast for Audio dongle, which is far more limiting than the Echo Dot’s Bluetooth or 3.5mm options. (You can use the Mini as a Bluetooth speaker for your phone or tablet, but it cannot connect to a larger speaker over Bluetooth as the Echo Dot can.)

    People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day.

    Let us know if this worked for you.  Also please be sure that all of the connected devices are located on the same wireless network.

    Well, that could be a possibility, as well.
