Alexa rolls onto LG smart TVs

LG is rolling out Alexa support for its 2019 smart TVs, after making the announcement back at CES 2019 in January.

Customers with ThinQ AI which can be found on the company's LG UHD, NanoCell and OLED TVs from 2019 will be treated to the update, which can be added via an Alexa app.

Essentially, if you paid top dollar for an LG TV then you can take advantage.

So what will it do? It's is a full smart speaker style experience, so you can ask questions, control smart home devices and use the selection of 90,000 skills.

The company added Google Assistant support back in 2018, but now Amazon’s voice assistant will be at users’ beck and call.

Last year LG TVs were able to support Alexa via an attached smart speaker – so this is the next logical step.

The Alexa update will be launched “this month” in North America, with Europe and Asia following afterwards.

And that’s not the end of the LG smart updates. AirPlay 2 and HomeKit compatibility is also incoming, which will give Apple smart home users a boost.
