You can now use the Google Assistant on LG's 2018 ThinQ TVs”

You can also send commands from other Google Assistant devices directly to LG's AI TVs, pausing, stopping, changing the channel or adjusting the volume.

"LG's unique partnership with Google allows us to be the first TV brand to offer the Google Assistant on our own OS which is a huge benefit for customers who are fans of webOS".

And beyond integrated Google Assistant support, 2018 LG ThinQ TVs are also compatible with existing Google Assistant products (like the Google Home), enabling voice control of the TV through separate Assistant devices. "With great partners like Google, we expect there to be many more exciting AI news to come from LG".

The ThinQ tech is more about controlling your TV and connections.

LG OLED and Super UHD TVs with ThinQ AI and Google Assistant integration will be available in the United States from May, with markets in Europe and Asia to follow soon after. LG's implementation reflects the importance the company places on creating and providing a more complete, accessible and diverse range of AI services. Users can even set times to have the TV turn itself off. Users simply need to press and hold the mic button down on their remote, enabling quick access to TV options, content, and information via natural questions and commands like "Switch to Discovery channel", "Search for the soundtrack of this movie", "Turn off the TV when this program is over", or "What's the weather this weekend?" Basically, it adds a Google Home to your TV, which is nice. Users can relive their favorite moments by displaying memories from Google Photos.

The new TVs with Google Assistant are available in the U.S. from this month and will launch later in key markets Europe and Asia.

The Google Assistant, meanwhile, works in much the same way as it does on a smartphone or Google Home. LG's 2018 AI-enabled TVs will work with other Google Assistant devices in the USA, U.K., Canada and Australia, with further expansion to be announced later this year.

LG's OLED and Super UHD TVs are available now.
