Question: Text Alert


Sometimes when i receive a text message, i hear the text alert tone through my HomePod. However, other times i dont... any idea why this is?

Thanks for your help!

If you are using AirPlay at the time then audio from your iOS device would be routed to the HomePod. Otherwise I don't think it should pick up on a text alert. Do you have any other devices that could be responding. Depending where I am I can have an iPhone, Mac, and iPad, each of which may play a sound.
