LG Connects Appliances To Google Home

LG Connects Appliances To Google Home

Available on iPhones, Android devices and Google's own Google Home smart speaker, Google Assistant is the tech giant's answer to Apple's Siri, responding to voice commands and enabling hands-free control of a wide range of smart devices. In celebration of this new line of products, LG will offer free Google Home devices with participating purchases.

Around 87 smart home appliances by the company from TVs to washing machines to dryers, ovens, refrigerators, dishwashers, air purifiers, and vacuums are now integrated with the Google Assistant and Google Home.

According to the company, users can now use voice commands from anywhere within range of the Assistant on Google Home or on their smartphone to adjust thermostat settings on their LG air conditioner or check the air quality level in their home using their LG air purifier, for example. Because of this, you can now control many of LG's smart appliances through your Android or iOS device, Google Home, or other smart speakers with the Google Assistant built-in. Right on your app, you can check the remaining time of the laundry, preheat the oven, or turn on the aircon before you get home. The Assistant on Google Home can also distinguish one voice from another for personalization.

Taking connected convenience further, LG SmartThinQ learns more about a consumer's usage patterns and helps predict their needs.
