Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.        Matter is the name of a new smart home connectivity standard on the way with the backing of some of the biggest names in tech…Amazon, Google, Apple and more.    Philips Hue…which has been a pioneer in smart light bulbs and more…is also a leading contributor in the development of Matter…and is telling it’s many fans and customers…that the Hue system will be updatable.   George Yianni is head of technology..

“So what we’ve been able to do is  find a way to support Matter in the Philips Hue Bridge and in that way make all Philips Hue products…even the ones we launched nine years ago at the beginning.. compatible with Matter.”

That may not be the case with some other smart home gear out there.   It may pay to start checking.   There’s more info at
