Embrace the Latest Technology With Matter on Your Google, Nest & Android Devices, Check details

Published Date:

Google Nest and Android devices are now Matter-enabled, giving consumers the ability to easily and consistently setup Matter-enabled devices and create a smart home that is tailored to their own needs.

The company claims that setting up and customising your smart home devices with Google Home has been even simpler because to Matter, a new standard for smart home platforms, applications, and devices.

According to Google, it has worked with 300 firms for almost three years to make it simpler to integrate smart home gadgets from hundreds of brands as a member of the Connectivity Standards Alliance, the group that created Matter.

Google Matter-enabled gadgets

Matter requires a hub in order to control smart devices. To use Google Home to operate your smart home, you’ll need a Nest or Google Home hub. Included are the following gadgets: Google Home, Google Home Mini, Nest Mini, Nest Audio, Nest Hub (original and upgraded), Nest Hub Max, and Nest Wifi Pro.

  • Both Wi-Fi and Thread, a low-power networking protocol, may be used by Matter-enabled devices to connect to your home network.
  • Google made updates to Nest Wifi Pro, Nest Hub Max, and Nest Hub (2nd gen) so that they may function as Thread border routers.
  • Google added Matter to the Fast Pair for Android update. As simple as pairing headphones, Fast Pair lets you connect Matter-enabled devices to your home network, Google Home, and other smart home apps. After being configured, Matter devices may be linked to other ecosystems and apps.

Google claims to have begun enabling Matter on Google Nest devices, Android, and Google Home. You could already possess some of the Nest devices that Matter, such as:

  • Google Home speaker (first-gen)
  • Google Home Mini
  • Nest Mini
  • Nest Audio
  • Nest Hub (first and second-gen)
  • Nest Hub Max
  • Nest Wifi Pro

Multiple-Admin feature

Cross-platform governance is streamlined by Matter’s Multi-Admin feature, which Google has made simpler. For 2023, Google and Samsung worked together to deliver a more seamless multi-admin experience. You can connect Matter devices configured with Samsung SmartThings to Google Home when you activate the Google Home app, and vice versa.


According to Google, a small number of Matter devices will be sold this Christmas season, with a large number coming in early 2023.

  • To find items that are Matter-enabled, just look for the new Matter badge. You’ll also be able to tell if they are Google Home-compatible right out of the box if they have the emblem.
  • In order to verify that items from other manufacturers work well with Google devices, look for the “Works With Google Home” label as well.

In the upcoming year, Matter will be made available on even more Google devices and the Google Home app will have iOS compatibility, according to Google.

Karen Yao, Google Home’s Director of Product Management, announced the Matter’s availability.

  • We’re interested to watch how the smart home develops as more Matter-enabled products become accessible, enabling you to swiftly and reliably set up Matter-enabled products and tailor your smart home to your specific requirements.
  • To ensure that additional smart home appliances are compatible with Matter, we are collaborating with partners from across the sector, such as Eve, Meross, Nanoleaf, Philips Hue, and Tuya.
