Samsung and Google just made setting up your smart home much more accessible! The tech giants announced a groundbreaking partnership that will allow for the seamless setup of Matter-enabled devices on both Samsung SmartThings and Google Home systems.
At the Samsung Developer Conference held in San Fransisco, the Korean tech giant revealed that they will be updating their SmartThings app in the coming months, allowing users to easily connect Matter-enabled devices to either system. This is a major game-changer for smart home enthusiasts, as Matter is an Internet of Things standard that ensures compatibility between devices from different companies.
This news comes hot on the heels of the Connectivity Standards Alliance, the consortium behind Matter, officially approving the first set of specifications. This means that developers can now apply for certification for their solutions, bringing us one step closer to a truly interconnected smart home.
We couldn’t be more excited about this partnership – it’s sure to revolutionize the way we set up and use our smart home devices. Thank you, Samsung and Google, for making our lives that much easier!”
Google and Samsung Partnership
Samsung is making it easier than ever to control your smart home devices! The tech giant announced that it will be using Matter’s multi-admin capabilities to ensure compatibility between devices across different apps.
Samsung Smartthings App and Ecosystem
Once the company updates its SmartThings app, users will be able to see Matter-enabled devices that were set up under Google’s ecosystem and import them into Samsung’s ecosystem, and vice versa. This means that you can control these devices from either the Samsung SmartThings app or the Google Home app – talk about convenience!
“We value our strong partnership with Google and are excited to provide users with greater flexibility through this new multi-admin feature,” said Jaeyeon Jung, Corporate VP and head of SmartThings at Samsung. “This is a natural progression in our evolution as partners and allows us to better support our massive existing and potential user base with both Samsung and Google products.”
We couldn’t be more thrilled about this news – it’s sure to make controlling your smart home a breeze! Thank you, Samsung, for making our lives that much easier.
