New update turns your Google Nest into a Matter control hub

It took a little while, but we finally see the material standard deploy to various smart home devices. And this time it’s coming to a Google Nest near you.

A total of eight devices will receive the update and all will act as central hubs to control other Matter gadgets, according to the announcement. (opens in a new tab) you have the original Google Home speaker, tiny house, Nest Mini, NestAudioNest Hub (first and second generation), Nest Hub Max, and the Nest Wifi Pro. Matter-enabled devices can connect to any of the eight via Wi-Fi or Thread, a wireless standard that offers a “low-power connection”. In fact, second-gen Nest Hub, Hub Max, and WiFi Pro are also getting an update allowing them to serve as Thread Edge Routers to control other Thread devices. Additionally, Fast Pair on Android is being updated so that mobile devices can quickly connect to Matter.
