LG Electronics Expands Voice Assistant Capabilities

LG Electronics USA’s portfolio of Wi-Fi connected smart appliances is now compatible with both Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. The company’s range of Wi-Fi enabled appliances includes air conditioners, air purifiers, vacuums and major appliances.

With voice commands, consumers with LG smart appliances are able to ask Amazon Alexa or the Google Assistant to turn on the LG HOM-BOT robotic vacuum or LG PuriCare air purifier when hands are busy with other tasks, for example, or adjust the settings on an LG air conditioner to create a comfortable environment prior to arriving home from work.

“Consumers trust LG to meet and anticipate their needs with cutting-edge innovations that make life easier and more enjoyable,” said David VanderWaal, svp/marketing, LG Electronics USA. “With LG SmartThinQ appliances, we’ve made it simpler than ever to create a smart home experience that helps consumers better manage their busy lives. Whether they prefer to use our SmartThinQ mobile app or voice commands with either Amazon Alexa or the Google Assistant, LG lets the consumer choose what’s right for them when it comes to controlling their smart home.”
