Designing for the Google Smart Home Ecosystem
This is how easy controlling smart home devices is in Google Home, one of the leading IoT ecosystems for the smart home. Google Home allows users to control their devices at home, including lights, sensors, cameras, and more intuitively through the Google Home App, Android controls, and Google Assistant voice commands on their smartphones, speakers, and displays. Google Home allows users to combine various types of devices in different rooms and build a complete smart home experience. Everything can be accessed through a single user interface, with a single touch or voice command, and controlled, organized, and managed individually or as a group.
For smart home device makers, Google Home provides a full-blown innovation environment with context-driven intelligence, automation, and more, making it easy to combine devices and create differentiated user experiences.
Google Home and Matter
Google Home will support the Matter protocol so users can connect Matter-enabled wireless IoT devices to their Google smart speakers or displays and control them via the Google Home App, native Android controls, and Google Assistant voice commands. Those same IoT devices can also be connected and controlled via another Matter-enabled ecosystem simultaneously.
Why Develop Matter IoT Devices for the Google Home Ecosystem?
With Matter IoT devices supporting the Google Home ecosystem, you can access an expansive customer base and take advantage of a carefully designed and tested Google Home user experience familiar to millions of users around the world.
