Google set to build new tools compatible with matter for smart home developers. In line with other big brands and industry titans like Apple and Samsung, Google takes a big step in embracing matter by building a suite of enhanced tools for smart home developers ready to build devices compatible with the matter.
Matter is a unified IP-based connectivity protocol built on proven technologies. Matter will enable communication across smart home devices, mobile app, and cloud services, and to define a specific set of IP-based network technology for device certification.
Google set to Build new Tools Compatible with Matter for Smart Home Developers
The company announced a set of new tools and features for developers ready to build devices compatible with matter at the Google smart Home Developer Summit today. The Matter protocol promises to be a new universal language for the connected home. This protocol is slated to be launched in 2022 supported by not just Google, but also Amazon,
Here‘s what was announced.
An Enhanced Google Home
Google is developing its smart home platform without a change in the Home name. Google home is adding a lot of new tools to its already made platform.
The aim is to make it in the form of a Google home development center. In this center, developers will be able to find the tools they need to build smart home devices, applications, and automation. A highlight of the developer center include;
- Building Matter devices
- Creating a customized setup of your devices in android and the google home app.
- Creating routines and automation
- Using Matter to build Android apps.
- Testing and Certification.
- New tools for monitoring analytics and performance.
The Google Home Developer Center will launch early next year.
NEW SOFTWARE DEVELOPER KITS COMPATIBLE WITH MATTER
Google plans to update Nest and Android devices like Nest speakers and Displays, Google assistant, and Android devices with Matter support.
Google also intends to add Support for Matter to the Google Home Developer Center, and thus, plans to roll out new tools for Matter development across Google Home and Android, including two new development kits.
GOOGLE HOME DEVICES SDK FOR MATTER DEVICES
Google intends to create an open-source, Matter specification SDK Which will help developers create matter-ready devices. This will give developers the freedom to customize their creations with a unified codebase.
The Google Home Device SDK is made to simplify building Matter devices and to complement Google‘s Open-source libraries. This includes improving quality with logging and adding tools to interact and test with other google devices and configuring a device with Google Assistant.
GOOGLE HOME MOBILE SDK
Google intends to provide a mobile version to the Home Device SDK. This includes Android support via Google play services. Google is fusing Matter into Android, creating ease in connecting Matter devices over Wifi and Thread.
Conclusively, Google deserves an applaud for trying her best to create ease for developers who are ready to build Matter compatible devices. Fusing Matter into smart home devices is a very good innovation and we need to look out for the release of these devices.
