I'm trying to use the built in "ETA" shortcut recipe. I add my wife as the recipient and run the shortcut. When it shows me the message for confirmation, her name is green, not blue.

When I actually send the message and look in the Messages app, I now have two different conversations for her. One is our historic message thread, the other has only this single message sent by Shortcuts.

Why is this happening, and how can I stop it?

  • Are you sending it to her Apple ID email address or to her phone number? What's different between how she's being contacted for both threads in Messages? – fsb Sep 21 '18 at 15:52
  • This is a common glitch with shortcuts. I have found now solution so far but I will keep looking. – JBis Sep 21 '18 at 17:15
  • Try typing in your wife's email address she uses for iMessage, not phone number. – airsquared Sep 21 '18 at 17:48
  • She uses an iPad, so iMessage is through her email. Tonight I tried it again. This time the bubble is blue, but it’s still listed in messages as a separate conversation. – Kirkman14 Sep 22 '18 at 4:23

I had the same issue. I solved it by typing in the phone number rather than using the contact.
