Testing OTA updates for Google Home Matter integrations is done using the Google Home Developer Console.
Connectivity Standards Alliance (Alliance) certification is not currently a prerequisite for OTA testing.
For testing OTA, in addition to the OTA prerequisites, you need to have:
- Access to a Linux system that has Docker Engine installed and access to the development board via USB
- A Matter integration that is ready for OTA testing.
Use your Alliance-assigned Vendor ID when testing OTA, not a test VID. When building your OTA image, change the Vendor ID and Product ID to match the integration to be tested.
We've provided Matter OTA testing procedures for specific SoCs.
