Matter support arrives for Amazon Alexa device

Amazon has concluded its first rollout phase of Alexa-compatible Matter smart home devices.

Customers can connect 17 different Alexa products over Wi-Fi with Matter support.

Matter gives customers their choice back when buying smart home product.

Amazon is entering a new phase of an ambient, functional smart home environment for its customer.

According to Amazon's official blog post the company has shared that it's completed the first rollout phase.

Smart Home device buyers can now surf through 17 different Alexa products, such as the Echo Dot with clock (5th gen), plugs etc.

This phased rollout allows the company to start with its most commonly used Alexa devices as it works through stability hiccups.

There are now more than 30,000 "Works with Alexa" devices for users to choose from.

Amazon hopes to allow customers to engage with a "familiar and consistent smart home experience with Alexa."

We’re thrilled to continue this momentum and bring broader Matter availability to more devices early next year.
