New Smart Home Standard Matter Launching Later this Year
Google announced on Wednesday at its I/O 2022 convention that Matter, the new smart home industry standard, is set to launch later this year after a delay announced earlier this year. “With Matter, there’s no need to build multiple versions of a smart home device to work across different ecosystems. You’ll only have to build once, and that device will work right away with Google Home and other smart home brands,” said Google in a blog post. Google is a big supporter of Matter, and is planning to update many of its Nest devices to become Matter controllers when the standard finally goes live — something it first announced this time last year. Launch of Matter and Google Nest devices supporting this new protocol will make connecting hundreds of AIoT devices including eWeLink support devices easier than ever before.
