LG ANNOUNCES AVAILABILITY OF AMAZON ALEXA SKILL

Compatibility with Alexa Offers More Versatility to webOS-based LG AI TVs, Gives Consumers Access to Easy Voice Control

ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., May 29, 2018 — LG Electronics USA announced that 2018 LG OLED TVs and LG SUPER UHD TVs with AI ThinQ® are now compatible with Alexa-enabled devices through the LG SmartThinQ Skill for Amazon Alexa. This collaboration between LG and Amazon will enable consumers to control their 2018 LG AI-enabled TVs via voice commands to their existing Alexa-enabled devices – including Amazon Echo, Echo Show, Echo Dot, Echo Spot and Echo Plus – and access numerous TV functions including volume, play, pause, start, stop, fast forward controls*, channel selection and content search.

Users can experience easy-to-use voice capabilities on their 2018 LG AI TVs, including OLED and LG Super UHD TVs with AI ThinQ, simply by asking Amazon Alexa. For example, you can now issue voice commands such as, “Alexa, turn up the volume on my living room TV” or “Alexa, change the channel to CNN on my kitchen TV.” You can also open specific LG webOS Smart TV apps by saying “Alexa, ask LG to launch YouTube on my bedroom TV.”

LG’s 2018 AI-enabled TVs expand the capabilities of the company’s award-winning premium line-up with cutting-edge innovations such as LG AI ThinQ artificial intelligence and the new LG OLED Alpha 9 intelligent processor (C8, E8, W8 models). The intelligent voice control on LG AI TVs enhances connectivity and control for the smart home and beyond. “The addition of Amazon Alexa compatibility to our 2018 LG AI-enabled TVs spotlights LG’s commitment to developing category-leading TVs that combine innovative technologies with the widest range of convenient, user-friendly interfaces,” said Tim Alessi, head of home entertainment product marketing at LG Electronics USA. “LG’s open platform-open partnership- open connectivity ecosystem enables LG AI products to work with the most popular smart platforms to deliver the most convenient and customized smart home experience tailored to a consumer’s specific lifestyle.”

Support for the LG SmartThinQ Skill for Amazon Alexa on 2018 LG TVs adds to LG’s rapidly growing AI ecosystem that includes the industry’s most extensive range of WiFi-enabled smart appliances. By asking Amazon Alexa to talk to LG, you can control your TV, as well as turn on your air purifier, turn off your ice maker, start your robotic vacuum and more. With LG’s Alpha 9 intelligent processor powering the LG SIGNATURE OLED TV AI ThinQ W8, and LG OLED TV AI ThinQ E8 and C8-series (and LG’s Alpha 7 processor powering the LG SUPER UHD TV AI ThinQ lineup), viewers will enjoy more realistic and accurate colors and improved image renderings from virtually any viewing angle. Combined with on-board Dolby Atmos audio and support for the widest variety of high dynamic range content with support for Dolby Vision, HDR10, HLG and Advanced HDR by Technicolor. – LG’s premium 4K UHD TVs were developed to fully immerse viewers in any scene.

    • Question: OLED C8 - Kanto YU6 Optical Out Popping

      Hi all, When connected via optical toslink cable, I am only hearing a constant popping noise, and also a high pitch whine. When connected via bluetooth or just using the internal speakers, everything works well. Has anyone had a simular issue or a suggested fix? I've tried both optical 1 and 2 ports in the back of the speaker.   Cable: Digital Optical Audio Cable Toslink Cable - [24K Gold-Plated, Ultra-Durable] Syncwire Fiber Optic Male to Male Cord for Home Theater, Sound Bar, TV

    • 2019 OLED TV lineup with AirPlay 2 will hit stores starting in April

      LG has unveiled the pricing and release plans for some of its 2019 OLED TV lineup, basically mirroring the company’s playbook from last year. These are some of the very best TVs you can buy, so LG is continuing to price them as such. The 2019 C9 (65-inch, 55-inch) and E9 (65-inch) series TVs will start shipping in April. The 77-inch model of the C9 and 55-inch E9 will hit stores a bit later in May and June, respectively. And this year’s update to LG’s “wallpaper” TVs — to be available in 65

    • VPN and Airplay 2 support the 2018 LG TV

      To whom it may concern, 1. Please begin a conversation with the VPN software companies and ask if they are ready to support the LG family of  SmartTVs. 2. Please start to support the 2018 LG TV operating system webOS to Apple’s ecosystem. At least two of the LG TV, C8 and E8, with the Alpha 9 intelligent processor should be more than able to share content to their TVs using AirPlay 2.

      LG has unveiled the pricing and release plans for some of its 2019 OLED TV lineup, basically mirroring the company’s playbook from last year. These are some of the very best TVs you can buy, so LG is continuing to price them as such.
      The 2019 C9 (65-inch, 55-inch) and E9 (65-inch) series TVs will start shipping in April. The 77-inch model of the C9 and 55-inch E9 will hit stores a bit later in May and June, respectively. And this year’s update to LG’s “wallpaper” TVs — to be available in 65- and 75-inch sizes — will come out in June.
      (If you were wondering, no, there’s still not at a firm price or release date for the stunning rollable TV.)
      LG’s TV branding can be pretty confusing, but all of these TVs fundamentally share the same display quality and the latest features that the company first announced at CES: that includes AirPlay 2, built-in support for Amazon Alexa voice commands, improved image processing, and more. LG claims itself as the only major TV manufacturer offering both Alexa and Google Assistant out of the box, whereas some other brands (Samsung, Roku TVs, etc.) only support them through external speakers you might already own.

      The TVs also feature HDMI 2.1, future-proofing them for any content (and just about any frame rate) that might be coming down the pipe over the next several years.
      But they differ in what’s around the screen; the E9 series has glass on all four sides, most noticeably at the bottom. The C9 doesn’t get quite that fancy. And the W9 (wallpaper) series puts the same display into a design that’s almost unfathomably thin.
      LG has said only its 2019 TVs will gain AirPlay 2 and HomeKit functionality; other TV makers including Samsung and Vizio are also adding the useful feature to their older sets. It’d be nice if the company would reconsider this, but I’m not holding out hope.

      Below are the prices and release months for the C9, E9, and W9 LG OLED ThinQ TVs. I’d advise against buying them soon after launch, as LG’s OLEDs tend to see big markdowns near the end of the year.
      LG C9 OLED 4K TVs:
      77-inch: $6,999 (May)
      65-inch: $3,499 (April)
      55-inch: $2,499 (April)
      LG E9 OLED 4K TVs:
      65-inch: $4,299 (April)
      55-inch: $3,299 (June)
      LG W9 Wallpaper OLED 4K TVs:
      77-inch: $12,999 (June)
      65-inch: $6,999 (June)

      Hi,
      I have just got my new LG 49LJ594V TV hung on the wall and so far I love it but I have a few questions.
      Can it be linked to Alexa? Can I upgrade the webOS past 3.7? Currently it says that it is running software 04.70.50 and no further updates are available and the webOS version is 3.7.2-57413 (dreadlocks2-drto)
       
      Any advise will be greatly recieved
