Matter certified and what it means, Dexcom G7, Sonos Sub Mini review

HomeKit Insider

In this week's episode of the Homekit Insider podcast, your hosts review the new Sonos Sub Mini, discuss what the Matter 1.0 certification means, and more!

Leading off the show, the Connectivity Standards Alliance (CSA) announced the certification of the 1.0 spec of Matter. After years of development, the announcement by the CSA brings the unifying smart home standard one step closer to reality.

We talk about what this certification means and what the next steps are before Matter can be used in the home.

In other news, we review the Sonos Sub Mini that recently launched after a substantial delay. This low-frequency speaker is a great addition to your soundbar or other Sonos speaker setups.

Other stories include an update to the Brilliant wall panels that adds support for Hunter Douglas shades, Ikea's Matter hub, and the Dexcom G7 launch in several countries — but not yet in the US.
