Activation of the Google Assistant Drives Critically-Acclaimed LG 4K UHD TVs Into the Connected Home Ecosystem with Cutting-Edge AI Services
LG Electronics USA announced Tuesday that the Google Assistant is launched on its 2018 AI TV line-up. This includes both LG OLED TVs and LG SUPER UHD TVs with ThinQ AI.
According to LG, they will deliver cutting-edge AI (Artificial Intelligence) features operated directly through the TV’s remote control with no additional hardware required.
As previewed at CES 2018, LG says, the collaboration between Google and LG will add more convenience in consumers’ lives, and the synergistic effects expected from this technology partnership will particularly impact LG’s TVs.
The Google Assistant combines with LG’s webOS-based ThinQ AI to bring new levels of convenience and control to American consumers. This enables 2018 LG TVs to deliver an intuitive AI experience that uses natural language commands to control TV functions, seamlessly discover and play content, and control TV settings.
With the Google Assistant, you can ask it to manage daily tasks, access information, control compatible smart home devices including lighting, appliances and much more.
LG and Google are collaborating to develop a wide range of features, and are working to expand consumer accessibility in multiple languages. By adding the Google Assistant to the webOS platform of LG’s 2018 AI TVs, the advanced machine learning and natural language processing technologies are expected to simplify life for consumers.
LG’s implementation reflects the importance the company places on creating and providing a more complete, accessible and diverse range of AI services.
