Amazon gets Matter support via iOS

It is now possible to activate Matter via Thread from iOS with Amazon’s Echo devices. Amazon has previously rolled out an update that provides its smart speakers with support for the new standard, but the installation process could only be performed via Android.

At the same time, the second generation Echo, Echo Plus, and Echo Dot also receive support for the new standard, which is intended to make it easier for users to create a smart home with products from different manufacturers. The fourth generation Echo also receives Thread support and can now function as a Thread border router.

Eve products receive “Works with Alexa” certification with support for Matter

Amazon has also collaborated with Eve, whose products previously only worked with HomeKit, to make them work better with Echo products that support Matter. They are therefore certified as “Works with Alexa”.

“I’m extremely excited about bringing our devices to Alexa customers.” says Jerome Gackel, CEO of Eve Systems. ”One of our biggest challenges being at the forefront of bringing the first Matter over Thread devices to customers’ homes is to ensure they have the right infrastructure at home to connect to our devices. With Alexa’s WWA badge and Thread support on millions of Echos already in customers’ homes, creating this seamless customer journey will be vastly accelerated.”
