LG manufactures a wide range of devices, many of which are connected or smart. LG today has announced that almost 87 of its Wi-Fi connected LG smart home appliances are now compatible with Google Assistant.
Including washing machines and dryers, refrigerators, ovens, dishwashers, vacuums, and air purifiers, customers are now able to hook their appliances into Google Assistant to offer greater control and benefit from the intelligence of the assistant.
Voice-enabled Control with the Google Assistant
LG smart appliance owners can now have the Google Assistant help them around the house with their connected LG appliances. For example, they can use simple voice commands from anywhere within range of the Assistant on Google Home (or on their smartphone) to check the time remaining during wash cycles on their washing machine, tell their LG refrigerator to make more ice, turn off their range after cooking, adjust thermostat settings on their LG air conditioner, and even check the air quality level in their home using their LG air purifier. The Assistant on Google Home can also distinguish one voice from another, so it can be personal to just you.
All activity has to be done through LG’s SmartThinQ app that is available for iOS and Android to control the entire lineup of LG devices.
“At LG, we’re making smart simple so consumers can enjoy all the convenience today’s connected home can offer without the hassle,” said David VanderWaal, vice president of marketing, LG Electronics USA. “Gone are the days of constantly checking on your laundry cycles or wondering if the kids left the refrigerator door open. With new ways to control your home, a future-ready open platform, and the most extensive range of connected appliances available today, LG smart appliances will change the way you think—and the way you live—for the better.”
LG is committed to built Wi-Fi into most of its 2017 appliances going forward so all can benefit from Google Assistant integration.
