2022.8: You can fix it!
While many of you enjoy a well-deserved vacation around this time, it seems like it didn’t slow down the development/contributions made to Home Assistant. What a beautifully packed release this is again!
I’m super stoked about the added Bluetooth support, opening up a whole new world of devices to Home Assistant. I’m even more excited about the new repairs and supported brands features. Those are going to help out A LOT.
Do you know what is really great about this release? All the major features and changes announced in this release are a step forward to our current goal: Streamlining experiences.
Enjoy the release!
