LG launches Google Assistant on 2018 TVs

LG has launched Google Assistant voice controls on its 2018 AI TV line-up – including LG OLED TVs and LG Super UHD TVs.

LG said that adding the Google Assistant to the webOS platform of LG’s 2018 AI TVs will “add more convenience in consumers’ lives” and that the technology partnership positively impacts LG’s award-winning TVs.

“With the Google Assistant now available natively in 2018 LG AI TVs, I believe we’re going to see a whole new level of AI adoption in the home,” said Brian Kwon, president of LG’s Home Entertainment.

“LG’s unique partnership with Google allows us to be the first TV brand to offer the Google Assistant on our own OS which is a huge benefit for customers who are fans of webOS. With great partners like Google, we expect there to be many more exciting AI news to come from LG.”

The integration of Google Assistant into LG TVs was first announced at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas earlier this year.
