Google Assistant is coming to LG’s ThinQ TV in seven more countries

Recommended Posts

LG’s 2018 lineup of AI-enabled ThinQ TVs are going to be getting Google Assistant functionality in many of its international markets. Starting 8/24, Google Assistant will be available in Canada, Australia, and the UK, with support coming to South Korea, Spain, France, and Germany by the end of the year.

LG’s ThinQ TVs came with integrated Google Assistant when they launched in the US and added support for Alexa commands soon after. The built-in ThinQ AI, which runs on LG’s own WebOS can be used for TV-specific commands, such as “search for the soundtrack of this movie,” while Google Assistant and Alexa can be used as a smart home hub. You can basically use the TV the same way you’d use your Google Home by speaking commands into the mic on your remote.

LG is also planning on bringing Amazon Alexa support to Australia and Canada in the future, but no time is specified yet.

Any information about when it will available for Brazil or any other country from Latin America? Currently I can switch to countries from LA, but none of them is in the above list 😕
The language is not the problem (I usually setup my devices to EN-us) you could just toggle it for our region  or make it clear somewhere for the buyers to see that the feature is not available outside a few main countries...

So I just moved from the US to New Zealand.  I changed my LG store to allow for local apps to be installed.  This caused the Google Assistant to stop working....

Set the location to Australia as that is listed as one of the working countries (google assistant on my phone is Aussie by default).  This still does not work.

Why are there so many region restrictions on these TV's?  I think I will just buy a Android TV next time.

This was response from LG on January 8 this year for asking when Google assistant will be available in Sweden.

Thank you for contacting LG Electronics. 
We would be grateful if you could rate our service and comment by using the scale in the bottom of this email, thank you in advance. 

Support for Google Home will be released in an update at the start of this year. Unfortunately, we have no exact release date but rest assured it's coming soon. 

We hope you found this information useful. For further questions, you are more than welcome to contact us again. 

Best regards,

After reply to LG last month requesting on what is the status. I got no feedback. 

Shame that spending money for ThinkQ AI cant include simple stuff. Kodi has plenty of advantages and does not cost.

    • PGS subtitles support and darker options for subtitles color

      Hello, It would be a great addition if OLED TVs had more options for subtitles color: like a dark gray, a very dark gray and maybe a transparency setting also. As it currently stands the subtitles ruin the watching experience a bit because they're too bright on HDR content :( The gray option nearly identical to white. Also support for more subtitle formats such as PGS would be great, it would remove the need to have an external device for video playback and improve the overall experien
