The goal, of course, remains the same: To ensure that all smart home devices, from nests to echo, travel on a single standard of iot communication, so that the consumer is not obliged to worry about the compatibility of the products he buys. The logo of matter, three arrows pointing towards the center, is this: unification, convergence and collaboration. Some recent iot devices, including the google nest hub second generation that we reviewed just a few days ago, are already compatible with matter, while several TV manufacturers, lighting systems, video surveillance and much more have already started the tests.

Support to matter could also arrive on devices already on the market through a software update.
