LG SmartThinQ™ Appliances Now support Amazon Alexa and the Google Assistant with Voice Assistant Connectivity


With over 100 Wi-Fi enabled SmartThinQ™ appliances already offered by LG Electronics, LG recently further expanded its SmartThinQ™ appliances lineup to include Amazon Alexa and the Google Assistant functionality. This is good news for consumers considering that 51 percent of consumers, according to an LG led nationwide smart home consumer research believe that they would be more successful cooks if they had a smart kitchen.

Using the LG SmartThinQ mobile app for Android and iOS or simple voice commands, a LG smart appliances consumer can remotely preheat LG ovens if stuck at work or at the grocery store to save food preparation time. Amazon Alexa or the Google Assistant can also be use to determine if washing and drying cycles are complete, if for example, without having to visit the laundry room. Ask Amazon Alexa or the Google Assistant to start the LG HOM-BOT robotic vacuum or LG PuriCare air purifier when busy with other household tasks. Ask Amazon Alexa or the Google Assistant to change the temperature while watching TV or preparing a meal.

LG Electronics is constantly advancing its touch button technology to help consumers to control their home: "With incredible pace, LG is making that dream a reality for consumers by offering the most innovative and simple ways to connect with smart products in the home with further updates to come across the LG brand."
