LG integrates Google Assistant in its smart appliance portfolio”

LG signed-up out of the gate and announced this morning that they are bringing Assistant support to 87 of their WiFi connected smart home appliances. "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".

Voice commands can include checking the remaining time on a wash cycle, asking the fridge to make ice, turning off the oven or setting the temperature on an air conditioner. By using adaptive technology to interpret usage habits and data, LG smart appliance will know when to alert owners to order filter refills for the refrigerator or air purifier and it can troubleshoot lint build-up in the dryer – all through the LG SmartThinQ app.

Per LG's Home Appliance & Air Solution Company's President, Song Dae-hyun, "LG makes it especially easy for consumers to connect and interact with Wi-Fi built into virtually all of its 2017 appliances". The first wave of compatible products included a laundry pair, range, refrigerator and air purifier under the company's premium LG Signature badge.

Your smart home just got smarter.

LG's offer runs from October 8 to 25 and is applicable to about 90 smart appliances sold by LG. The Assistant on Google Home can also distinguish one voice from another for personalization.

Encouraged by the positive response to the Google Home speaker, the device's makers are reportedly planning to launch the Google Home Mini in October.

LG smart appliance owners can now have the Google Assistant help them around the house with their connected LG appliances, all hands free. The standard and the mini versions will compete with the Amazon Echo (launched in July 2015) and Echo Dot (arrived in March 2016). The consumers will be able command these appliances to do specific tasks from their Google Home or Android/ iOS smartphones with Google Assistant.
