Back in 2019, a host of companies including Apple, Samsung, Amazon and Google signed an agreement to develop a universal standard for connecting and managing disparate smart home devices. The latter was named Matter. It was assumed that the first gadgets with support for this standard will be released in 2021. However, their release was delayed until next year.
At the same time, the standard itself continues to evolve. The other day it became known that in the future Matter will be able to become an alternative to various proprietary protocols for transferring and playing content on supported devices. All this should make life much easier for users.
In addition, the new standard should make it easier to control the TV. With it, users can quickly switch between channels, control the sound and change the signal source without having to pick up different remote controls.
