LG ELECTRONICS ANNOUNCES GOOGLE HOME Compatible Appliances

At Google I/O, LG Electronics (LG) announced a lineup of smart appliances that are fully compatible with the Google Assistant on Google Home, ushering in cutting-edge connectivity and convenience for today’s smart home. Google Home services will begin rolling out this month in the United States on 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. Dates of availability in other markets will be announced locally at the time of launch.

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 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.

The announcement at Google I/O included a live demonstration of just how easy it is to connect and use the LG SIGNATURE air purifier with Google Home. With a simple 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.

“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. LG also is offering Google Home compatibility on select connected appliances under the LG brand – including the new LG Hom-Bot Turbo+ and LG smart air conditioner – with plans to expand the offering to additional products.
