The Google Home Developer Console provides a Test page where you can configure and run tests against your Matter integration using the Google Home Test Suite.
The Test Suite can be run on a set of devices that belong to a specific Matter project configuration. It is very important to run the Test Suite on your integration(s) to ensure that everything is working properly.
On the Test page, Matter integrations that are complete and ready to test are listed under Ready.
Matter integrations that have been tested are listed under Tested.
Type of test plans
There are two types of test plans:
Development test plans are used to test controlling devices using Matter. They are editable, but cannot be submitted for Matter certification.
Certification test plans are specifically for Matter certification, and are not editable.
Set up your tests
From the list of projects, click Open next to the project you want to work with.
In the navigation menu on the left side of the page, go to Matter > Test.
On the same row as the integration you intend to test, click Test.
Provide a name for your test.
Select Development for the Test Plan Type, then select the devices you wish to test from the list of devices.
If you preparing for certification in the Google ecosystem, select Certification for the Test Plan Type.
Click the Next: Test Plan button.
On the next page, titled Create a test plan, select the Test Suites you want to run. For each Test Suite, select Manual mode (automated tests are not yet supported).
You may now run your tests or clickReturn to Developer Center.

In the Test Suite, from the Create a test plan page, click Run Test.
View and interpret your test results
Your test results appear once the tests complete.
The status of each test suite execution appears next to it (Passed, Failed).
The Logs pane shows the status of each individual test execution.
You may view previous test results for a development plan or an unsubmitted certification test plan by clicking Retest from the upper table to go to the Test Environment page which displays the previous test results.
For a submitted certification plan, click Result in the lower table to view the test results report.
