Currently I am hosting a minecraft server, and I as the operator would like to send a "server message", so all the players can read it, instead of me sending the message specifically to each and every player. How can this be done? I looked online, but they all suggest the /msg keyword, which does not work anymore.


You'd want to use say:

  say <message …>

Fails if any target selectors do not resolve to at least one online player, or if any named players are not online.

On success, broadcasts message to all players on the server. If a multi-person target selector (e.g., @a) is used in message, the list of names is formatted as "name1 and name2" for two players, or "name1, name2, ... and nameN" for N players. Target selectors are not recognized in Pocket Edition.

For example: say Hello world The wiki seems to suggest you need say @a Hello world but I don't think that's needed.



To Broadcast a message to all players on your server, open your server command bar, then type /say (Your Message Here) This will then send the message to all players on your server.


Server Console: /say Hello Minecrafters!

Chat In Game: [Server]: Hello Minecrafters
