Google Assistant to Deliver Easy, Immediate Connectivity and Convenience
The brand revealed a lineup of smart appliances that are fully compatible with the Google Assistant on Google Home at Google I/O, ushering in cutting edge connectivity and convenience for the present day smart homes. Google Home compatibility will begin rolling out this month in the United States with LG’s premium portfolio of connected smart devices including the LG ‘Signature’ brand washing machine and dryer, refrigerator, oven range and air purifier as well as an LG 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. Compatibility with Google Home provides tangible benefits while enhancing usability for connected devices. For example, users can check the time remaining during wash cycles on their LG Signature washing machine, tell their LG Signature InstaView refrigerator to create more ice or adjust thermostat settings on their LG air conditioner through simple spoken commands from anywhere within range of Google Home.
“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 & 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.”
LG Signature home appliances will be the first in the LG lineup to offer Google Assistant on Google Home compatibility, delivering on the brand’s promise to offer innovations that combine the best of LG’s cutting edge technology and world class design with exquisite attention to detail for the most discerning consumer.
