Eve will bring its smart home products to Android
Matter is set to unify large parts of the smart home ecosystem, and one of the side effects of that will be the ability for products that once worked with a single assistant or device to be able to expand to new customers. That’s what Eve has to share at IFA 2022, where she revealed her Apple-only line of smart home products is coming to Android.

Along with Android support, Eve says Matter will bring support for its products to Google Assistant as well as Alexa and Samsung SmartThings.

Eve’s former Bluetooth range is now an all-Thread range, offering 14 Matter-ready products. These Thread-enabled Eve products, which currently work exclusively with Apple Home, will begin receiving free over-the-air firmware updates so that over time they can be used with other smart home systems, such as Amazon Alexa , Google Home or Samsung SmartThings. . Along with these updates, Eve will release a version of the Eve app for Android by the end of this year.
