    I have HomePod and just got a new iPhone 8+. When I ask Siri thru HomePod to send a text he/she says that the iOS associated with the HomePod "has to be on the same network." Well as far as I know it is....I know it is probably something simple but I have not yet figured it out. Be gentle to this old fella. lol

    Being on the same wifi network is required for personal request, including messages. This helps minimize the risk of someone sending a message from your iPhone intentionally or accidentally.
