Earlier this week, Google revealed that the latest generation of Nest Thermostat now supports Apple HomeKit, thanks to the addition of Matter. Starting on Tuesday, the Nest Thermostat model released in 2020 has been updated to support Matter, the new smart home standard that allows multiple platforms to communicate with each other.
“Great news! We’re rolling out Matter compatibility for our newest Nest Thermostat released in 2020. This means you can now adjust the temp and change your thermostat’s mode with multiple Matter-certified smart home platforms and apps.”
For this to work, Apple iOS users need to be running iOS 16.4 or later and in the Home app, users will have access to the adjust the Nest Thermostat’s temperature and change the mode.
Google has also said it is looking into the possibility of older thermostat models to work with Matter.
