LG has partnered with Google, rolling out Google Home compatibility on its portfolio of connected smart appliances, including a washing machine and dryer, refrigerator, oven range, air purifier, air conditioner and robotic vacuum.
With Google Home, users will be able to access the full range of the Google Assistant’s features on connected LG appliances. For example, with voice command users can adjust settings on the air purifier and the Google Assistant on Google Home provides up-to-the-minute air quality readings as well as verbal feedback on operational status. Users can also adjust thermostat settings on the LG air conditioner through spoken commands from anywhere within range of Google Home, the company said.
“Our partnership with Google demonstrates just how easy it is to smart-enable one’s home with friendly, approachable products. You don’t have to earn a degree in rocket science to design your very own smart home,” said Song Dae-hyun, president of LG Electronics’ home appliance and air solutions company. “We look forward to expanding our working relationship with Google and other innovators in this dynamic market in the years to come to make the smart home a reality for all.”
