The release includes washing machines and dryers, refrigerators, ovens, dishwashers, vacuums, air purifiers and more. All are now compatible with the Google Assistant on Google Home, eligible Android phones and iOS smartphones.
LG smart appliance owners can now have the Google Assistant help them around the house with their connected LG appliances, all hands-free. They can use simple voice commands on their phone or anywhere within range of the Assistant on Google Home 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 the home using their LG air purifier. The Assistant on Google Home can also distinguish one voice from another so it can be personal to each family member.
Song Dae-Hyun, president of LG’s Home Appliance & Air Solution Company said,
“LG makes it especially easy for consumers to connect and interact with Wi-Fi built into virtually all of its 2017 appliances. Our collaboration with Google is an example of our strategy of Open Partnership, Open Platform, and Open Connectivity.”LG | lg.com/uk
