This alliance gave rise to a project called chip that finally today decreed the name of the new standard: matter. smart home accessories that will support matter, can be combined with homekits rather than alexa and google without any difference. There are thousands of products that only work with alexa but that do not support homekit and thanks to matter all this will become a distant memory.
Accessories can be combined with simple configuration codes, similar to what we already do with homekit products. The first devices will arrive by the end of the year but from 2022 we will find many more.
