Large portions of the smart home ecosystem are expected to be unified by matter, and as a result, items that previously only worked with one assistant or gadget will be able to reach new customers. That is what Eve will be announcing at IFA 2022, along with the news that its previously exclusive Apple line of smart home goods will soon be available on Android.
By the end of 2022, Eve will launch an Android app that will enable the company’s smart home gadgets for the first time on the platform. Eve was previously restricted to iOS and HomeKit support.
Eve claims that Matter will support its products on Google Assistant, Alexa, Samsung SmartThings, and other platforms in addition to Android.

With 14 devices available that are prepared to support Matter, Eve’s old Bluetooth range has been replaced by an all-Thread selection. In order to eventually integrate with other smart home systems, including as Amazon Alexa, Google Home, or Samsung SmartThings, certain Thread-enabled Eve items, which currently only function with Apple Home, will start receiving free over-the-air firmware updates. By the end of this year, Eve will also release an Android version of the Eve App with these upgrades.
