LG TVs get Google Assistant

LG Electronics said Thursday that users of its artificial intelligence (AI) TVs can now use the Korean-language version of the Google Assistant voice recognition program.

The Korean tech giant said the LG OLED TV AI ThinQ and the Super Ultra HD TV ThinQ models are now capable of understanding local users. This marks the first time that TVs have adopted the Korean-language version of the Google Assistant program.

LG Electronics first released AI TVs equipped with the English version of the system in May. The company said other newly introduced languages on its TVs include German, French and Spanish.

The company said users can make voice commands through the remote control, and its TVs will connect to various Google services.

For example, users can ask the distances between cities or request that their TVs post photos from Google Photos. LG’s AI TVs can also connect to other LG home appliances and other smart devices linked to Google Assistant.

The company added that its AI TVs stand out from other products in the market as they are also equipped with LG’s own AI platform DeepThinQ to provide more optimized features to users.
