Automatic Google Fonts don't match with real Google Fonts

The developers I’ve worked always complained that the prototype fonts werent the same as google fonts and I always thought it was really weird.

Today, I decided to explore this problem and identified that the automatic font brought by the Google Fonts Figma does not combine in several factors with the same font downloaded from Google Fonts. In the case of Lato, rendering, tracking and even font-weight…

Solution found, downloaded the font and use disconnected from the automatic Google Fonts API Figma.

Why it happens?
