Local availability to be confirmed.

Google Home compatibility will begin rolling out this month in the US on LG’s premium portfolio of connected smart devices, including the LG Signature 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 means users can check the time remaining during wash cycles on their LG Signature washing machine, tell their LG Signature InstaView refrigerator to create more ice, or adjust thermostat settings on their LG air conditioner through simple spoken commands.

LG Australia general manager for marketing, Angus Jones told Appliance Retailer, “We’re excited by the new partnership with Google that will allow some of LG’s products to be integrated with Google Home and controlled by Google Assistant.

“This means customers will be more connected than ever before, making life and chores easier. We pride ourselves on improving the day-to-day lives of Australians by creating forward-thinking technology and these products are a true reflection of our mission. We will continue to keep our customers updated on the availability of these products from our Australian retailer partners.”
