How to Change HomePod Wi-Fi Network

The Apple HomePod is a smart speaker that can be seamlessly integrated into your home network to play music, answer questions, and control smart home devices. However, there may come a time when you need to change the Wi-Fi network that your HomePod is connected to. This could be due to moving to a new house, upgrading your router, or simply changing your network settings. Whatever the reason may be, changing the Wi-Fi network on your HomePod is a straightforward process.

Step 1: Prepare Your HomePod

Before you begin the process of changing the Wi-Fi network on your HomePod, make sure that it is powered on and connected to a power source. It’s also a good idea to have your iPhone or iPad handy, as you will need it to complete some of the steps.

Step 2: Open the Home App

Open the “Home” app on your iPhone or iPad. This app is used to set up and control all of your HomeKit-enabled devices, including the HomePod.

Step 3: Access Home Settings

Tap on the house icon in the top-left corner of the screen to access the “Home Settings.”

Step 4: Select Room Settings

Scroll down and select “Room Settings.” Find the room where your HomePod is located and tap on it.

Step 5: Change Wi-Fi Network

Under “Speakers,” you will see your HomePod listed. Tap on it, and then select “Wi-Fi Network.” You will have the option to choose a new Wi-Fi network from the list of available networks.

Step 6: Enter Wi-Fi Password (if necessary)

If you are connecting to a new Wi-Fi network that requires a password, enter the password when prompted.

Step 7: Wait for Connection

Your HomePod will now attempt to connect to the new Wi-Fi network. This process may take a few moments, so be patient.

Step 8: Confirm Connection

Once your HomePod has successfully connected to the new Wi-Fi network, you will receive a confirmation message on your iPhone or iPad.

Congratulations! You have successfully changed the Wi-Fi network on your Apple HomePod. Your smart speaker should now be up and running on its new network, ready to serve all of your entertainment and smart home needs.

By following these simple steps, you can ensure that your Apple HomePod stays connected and functional even when changes occur in your home network setup.
