How to get the messages using Raspberry Pi Pico W and CircuitPython

The Raspberry Pi Pico certainly made the cat among the doves in 2021, but it was missing a key feature, Wi-Fi. Sure, we can hack our own solution, but we had to wait until mid-2022, when Raspberry Pi announced the Raspberry Pi Pico W, to get official support.

The Raspberry Pi Pico W was released with robust MicroPython firmware, but unfortunately CircuitPython, our favorite microcontroller Python version, lacked support. It may have taken a few months but on the hard work of @jeffler We now have CircuitPython 8 Beta 2, which brings Wi-Fi support to the Pico W while maintaining the familiar CircuitPython ecosystem.
