Quickly pair things up
Google announces that this update brings Matter support for Fast Pair to Android devices. Thus, it is now easy to pair objects connected to your home network, to Google Home, or to any other Matter-compatible app. With the arrival of this great universal protocol, compatible beings have been given a badge indicating this. Google recommends taking a closer look at having this badge if people want to have an object connected to their home to be controlled with Google devices.
Google and Samsung have teamed up to offer simplified multi-department functionality from 2023.
