Google is enabling Matter on Nest and Android devices

San Francisco: Tech giant Google announced that it has enabled Matter support on its Nest and Android devices, allowing users to quickly and consistently set up Matter devices and fine-tune their smart home accordingly.

Matter is a new standard for smart home platforms, applications and devices, the tech giant said in a blog post Friday.

Everything from smart lighting, thermostats, blinds and door locks work better together with less time and effort with Matter.

Matter-enabled Google devices can also be connected to Matter devices from other brands, as the tech giant partnered with 300 companies for nearly three years to make it easier for users to connect smart home devices from hundreds of brands.

Users need a hub to control their smart devices. If someone wants to control their smart home with Google Home, they’ll need a Google Home or Nest device that can double as a hub for Matter.

“Matter-enabled devices can connect to your home network via Wi-Fi or Thread — a networking technology that comes in handy when you need an energy-efficient connection,” the company said.

In addition, the technology giant Matter has added support for Fast Pair on Android.

The Fast Pair service allows users to quickly connect Matter-enabled devices to their home network, Google Home and other smart home applications.

“We are working with Samsung to build a smoother Multi-Admin experience, with an enhanced experience for you in 2023,” said theAcompany.
