Nest Thermostat is getting Apple HomeKit support through Matter starting today

Cupertino, August 1, 2023

Google announced today that it will begin rolling out Matter support for the Nest Thermostat model released in 2020. Specifically, this means the smart thermostat can now be controlled using Apple's Home app and Siri on the iPhone and other devices. In a blog post, Google said Matter support will be rolling out to the Nest Thermostat starting today with an automatic over-the-air software update, and the rollout will be completed in the coming weeks. Matter is a universal smart home standard that supports Apple's HomeKit, Google's Home, Amazon's Alexa, Samsung's SmartThings and other smart home platforms all in one, meaning the Nest finally supports HomeKit. In the Home app, according to Google, users can adjust the Nest Thermostat's temperature, change the thermostat's mode, and more. The Verge notes that iPhone users will need to update to iOS 16.4 or later to take advantage of this functionality. Google is "exploring" adding Matter support to older Nest thermostats, according to The Verge, but they remain incompatible with HomeKit for now.
