Google’s Matter Protocol Will Work To Improve Smart Home Devices
The smart home tech giant, Google, has outlined its plans of leveraging Matter, an open-source smart home standard, which it is developing in conjunction with other companies such as Apple, Amazon, and Samsung.
To start, the company has revealed that it will add Matter support to Android and Nest-branded smart home devices.
Google thinks that the addition of Matter will help make the process of setting up smart home devices much easier. It will also help in cross-platform devices’ communication in the same language – something that has never happened so far.
Google also plans to make Matter play well with Thread, a technology it co-developed that aims to boost the security and performance of smart home devices. Devices such as Nest Hub Max, Nest Wi-Fi, and Nest Hub with Thread built-in will serve as a connection hub for all Matter-certified smart home devices. Google assures that all Nest-branded smart speakers and smart displays will get updates that add Matter support in the future. Google also aims to add the new Nest Thermostat to its list of compatible devices, allowing them to interact with other Matter-certified appliances in the house. The company is also creating a database of smart home devices that will work with Google Assistant-compatible gadgets, educational videos, and FAQs.
