  • Amazon says it will bring Matter-over-Thread support to its Echo devices this spring.
  • All of the company’s remaining compatible Echo and Eero devices will be updated to support Matter by spring as well.
  • The Alexa app will now remember when you change a device name in the app or the manufacturer’s app.

Last month, Amazon revealed it was working on a phased rollout of Matter support to its devices. Now the company has confirmed it’s also bringing Matter-over-Thread support later this year.

At CES 2023, Amazon announced Matter-over-Thread support will be coming to Echo devices this spring, according to The Verge. Along with that support, the company will turn its Echo 4th gen smart speaker into a Matter controller and a Thread border router.
