Matter, the center of attention
Once again, Matter was in the spotlight. It is a new protocol from the Connectivity Standards Alliance that allows perfect interoperability between smart home devices from Apple, Amazon, Google, Samsung, among other manufacturers, and that seeks to be as recognizable as other protocols such as Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.
However, Matter still has a long way to go to achieve the simpler, more interconnected future it promises.
