These days we see more and more smart appliances in our homes.
The most common include smart speakers and smart screens.
The problem starts when we try to have even more smart devices in our homes and these don’t work with your favorite platform.
Fortunately, Apple, Amazon and Google are joining forces to solve this.
Google has announced that it will work with Amazon, Apple and other brands to form a new Connected Home group managed by Zigbee Alliance.
This group will focus on bringing market-tested technologies to develop a new standard of smart home open connectivity, based on Internet Protocol.
Adding IP would enable secure communication between devices, applications and services.
This new alliance will also help developers and manufacturers of smart home appliances, as they will not have to spend time and resources building support for each smart home platform.
This new IP-related service could start operating by the end of 2020, and will make all smart home devices compatible with Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, Apple Siri and other platforms.
