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.

      LG Acquires AppleMango Together with GS Energy and GS Neotek,
      Securing Advanced EV Charger Development Capabilities

      SEOUL, June 27, 2022 — LG Electronics (LG) today announced it has acquired South Korean electric vehicle (EV) charger solutions provider, AppleMango Co., Ltd., jointly with GS Energy and GS Neotek. The acquisition is expected to accelerate the growth of LG’s EV charging solution business and enable the company to take advantage of future business opportunities.
      This strategic move, combined with LG’s own expertise and wealth of experience in both B2C and B2B segments, will enable the company to create fully-featured charging stations boasting a user-friendly interface and real-time control/management. LG continues to strengthen its EV charging solution business leveraging its exceptional digital signage technologies – specifically, its IP-rated outdoor digital display with sturdy, dust- and water-proof enclosure.
      Established in 2019, AppleMango has developed proprietary technologies and systems, including a slim, fast charger, to meet the rising global demand for EV charging solutions. In addition to the company’s market-leading charging tech, LG will secure access to the necessary operational infrastructure by working closely with GS Energy and GS Neotek. Both GS companies have considerable experience in operating EV charging stations and related businesses.
      The new acquisition will help LG to become an integrated solutions provider, bringing together its new charger development capabilities and existing in-house-developed EV charging management system. Moreover, the move is expected to create synergy with LG’s ongoing efforts in the area of vehicle components, including the development and supply of EV batteries and adjacent products, such as energy storage system (ESS) and energy management solutions.
      “The EV charging market is expected to grow rapidly due to the surging demand for more eco-friendly vehicles,” said Paik Ki-mun, senior vice president of LG Electronics Business Solutions Company. “Leveraging our know-how and experience in the B2B sector, we will offer customized, integrated vehicle charging solutions for diverse customers, enhancing the competitiveness of our existing business and ensuring our readiness for future opportunities.”
      LG now boasts a comprehensive EV business portfolio, with the recently-launched EV charging solution business joining other LG-owned concerns, including the LG Vehicle component Solutions (VS) Company, ZKW Group and the LG Magna e-Powertrain joint venture. This year, LG will establish an EV charger production line at LG Digital Park in South Korea, and aims to provide customized charging solution for various settings, such as private residences, shopping malls, hotels and public institutions, in the near future.

      hello, 

      Got a new 86nano75SQA
       
      google assistance BUILT in works fine - and if i ask it to play a video it does.

      But external google assistance on my google devices, only turns the TV on and off, and opens apps..

      I cant for instance say "Play big bang theory on LG TV"

      Or it says "I also need to know which device to use. try saying that again, and include the device's name"

      Can anyone do this? is it it expected it works? works fine with the built in assistant, but not external ones

      New Delhi: Elista, the electronic appliance company headquartered in Dubai has just launched new smart TVs in India. These new televisions are a refresh of their existing lineup in India. So, let’s take a look at their specs and features.  
      Pricing and Availability 
      The 43-ich Elista Smart LED TV has a price tag of Rs. 48,990 ($628). The bigger 50-inch and 55-inch options cost Rs. 59,990 ($769) and Rs. 70,990 ($910) respectively. These TVs are available on all leading consumer electronics shops and online platforms.  
      Elista Smart LED TV specs & features 
      The new range of Elista Smart LED TVs comes in three screen sizes: 43-inch, 50-inch, and 55-inch. They offer a 4K resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels along with 1.07 billion colors. The TVs provide smooth visuals even when watching fast-paced scenes thanks to MEMC technology (Motion Estimation, Motion Compensation) and 60Hz refresh rate.  
      The Smart TVs also come with ALLM (Automatic Low Latency Mode) which reduces the response time of the display to just 5ms, making it ideal for console gaming. The smart TV operates on LG’s WebOS which comes with the ThinQ AI. The ThinQ AI is LG’s voice assistant that makes it simple for viewers to control the TV with either voice or via a mobile device. If the ThinQ UI is not your cup of tea, you also get access to the built-in Alexa to help navigate through the UI or through your favorite OTT apps.  
      The smart TVs come with easy-to-use Magic remote with a dedicated hotkey for Netflix and Prime Video. For connectivity, these TVs have in-built dual-band Wi-Fi. Last but not the least, the speakers of the smart TVs come powered by Dolby Audio.
