LG Electronics is making it easier to control and monitor your LG appliances through the new ThinQ (formerly SmartThinQ) mobile app. The first of its kind, the ThinQ app allows users to speak conversationally to Google’s voice assistant to gain access to information on an array of LG appliances like washing machines, dryers, refrigerators, ovens, dishwashers, vacuum cleaners, air conditioners, air purifiers and more.
A quick check of the app will update homeowners on the status of their LG devices, like the temperature reading on their thermostat or the time remaining on their washing machine cycle. Based on the information they receive, users can verbally request the ThinQ app to make adjustments to their devices, diminishing the need to look down at their smartphone.
“Creating a smart home experience that actually makes our customers’ lives measurably more convenient is what drives us daily,” said Alice Ryu, head of LG Home Appliance & Air Solution Company’s smart home business. “With the voice capable mobile app, we have created the ultimate smart home ecosystem that puts convenience first.”
