Features Supported in Different Ecosystems for TP-Link Matter-Certified Devices

The development of Matter is ongoing, with progress varying across platforms. Different ecosystems may support different features for TP-Link Matter-certified devices. To support a feature, the support of device firmware and compatibility with the device categories and functions defined by third-party ecosystems is required. For example, Matter does not currently support the camera category, which is expected to be supported when Matter version 1.2 is released.

The following table lists the features currently supported by different ecosystems.

Note: The supported features are subject to change as Matter continues to develop.
