Letting the Smart Speaker Run Things For You

How about having an appliance that will do virtually everything for you? Have you heard about smart speakers? 

For beginners, a smart speaker is a type of wireless speaker and voice command device with an integrated virtual assistant that offers interactive actions and hands-free activation.

Most of the smart speakers on the market act as a smart device that utilizes Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and other wireless protocol standards to extend usage beyond audio playback, such as to control home automation devices.

Smart speakers work on command. Basically, you become the boss as you “order” it around.

A smart speaker includes but not be limited to, features such as compatibility across a number of services and platforms, peer-to-peer connection through mesh networking, virtual assistants, and others.

Each can have its own designated interface and features in-house, usually launched or controlled via application or home automation software. Some smart speakers also include a screen to show the user a visual response.

“One could say the smart speaker has become a HQ for Internet of Things (IoT). Today’s smart speakers can keep everything in order in the home by turning lights on and off, adjusting the temperature of the room or reading the news, all with a voice command,” says LG Electronics. 

Smart speakers can now recognize voices for a more personal experience and can act as an individual’s personal assistant by reading that day’s agenda, offering a reminder to pick up milk on the way home and even recommending the fastest route to get to work in the morning. With such technology in the home, it’s easier now than ever to multitask and save time. And what makes a house a home more than having the time to really enjoy it?

LG Electronics believes that life can be “Made Better with LG ThinQ,” its contribution to the AI ecosystem. With products such as the LG TV AI ThinQ, LG InstaView ThinQ refrigerator, LG TWINWash ThinQ, LG CordZero R9 ThinQ robot vacuum, LG XBOOM AI ThinQ smart speaker and LG V50ThinQ G5 smartphone, LG is delivering personalized, proactive, efficient and easy solutions to today’s consumers.
