Amazon Alexa on the TV would work exactly like any other devices equipped with Alexa, such as controlling their smart lighting, reporting on the weather, or listening to the daily horoscope, playing music, and listening to audiobooks. By incorporating the Google Assistant, LG has also taken into consideration those who prefer Google Assistant over Alexa.
Using intelligent voice control, the users can speak into the LG Magic Remote to search for shows, change TV settings, switch to different inputs and more. Only the LG 2019 OLED and some selected NanoCell TVs are equipped with Apple AirPlay 2 and HomeKit. Using the AirPlay 2, users can watch content like videos and photos on the Apple TV app and other video apps on compatible LG TVs connected to an Apple device. With Apple HomeKit, customers will be able to control the latest range of TVs with LG ThinQ AI by interacting with Siri or the Home app.
