Matter is a new smart home standard designed to make it easier for devices from different manufacturers to work together. It is expected to launch in late 2022 or early 2023. By supporting Matter, Amazon is making it easier for iPhone users to add Matter-enabled devices to their smart homes.

In addition to supporting Matter, Amazon has also announced a partnership with Eve, a company that makes HomeKit-enabled devices. With this partnership, Eve devices will now be able to be added to Alexa using Frustration-Free Setup (FFS). FFS is a process that makes it easy to add new devices to Alexa.

This is an important development for the smart home market. It makes it easy for iPhone users to add Matter-enabled devices to their smart homes, and it makes it easy for Eve customers to use their devices with Alexa. This is a win for everyone involved.

What does this mean?

If you’re an iPhone user who’s been thinking about getting into the smart home game, now is a great time to do it. With Amazon’s support for Matter and its partnership with Eve, it’s now easier than ever to add smart home devices to your home.

If you’re already invested in the Apple HomeKit ecosystem, this news is good for you too. Eve makes some of the best HomeKit devices on the market, and now you can use them with Alexa. This gives you more flexibility and control over your smart home.
