LG to Introduce Its First Smart Speaker With Google Assistant at CES

LG to Introduce Its First Smart Speaker With Google Assistant at CES

Of course, it'll fire up with "OK, Google" and control your smart home or set reminders or get you the weather, just like other Assistant-equipped speakers.

LG has revealed some details regarding a range of new speakers and home entertainment devices that it will officially unveil at CES 2018 next month. And now comes word of the LG ThinQ Speaker sporting Google Assistant technology.

"Sound technology has come a long way since LG introduced the first radio to Korean consumers nearly 60 years ago", "At this year's CES, I'm confident audiences will be impressed with the amount of technology we've introduced into our audio products without compromising on sound quality".

The SK10Y Dolby Atmos soundbar has been tuned in collaboration with British audio experts Meridian Audio.

Apart from the Dolby Atmos Sound Bar, most of their products were outside of our scope a year ago but we couldn't help but take a little time to enjoy the LG experience in all of its glory. And perhaps more importantly, how LG plans to price such a device.

CDC: We Could Be In For A Nasty Flu Season
Flu experts at the CDC say its too early to know when flu season will peak in the United States and how severe it will be. Each year, a flu vaccine is created to target strains of the viruses expected to be most dominant that particular season.

All three speakers in the PK family support aptX HD for high-resolution wireless streaming and they also have Dynamic Party Lighting which flashes to the beat of the music.

LG teamed up with Google to ensure that the LG ThinQ Speaker delivers all the conveniences which come with having a digital assistant. It has 550W of power and can upconvert audio to 24-bit/192KHz. The launch also hints that many of LG's newer appliances will be Assistant-savvy - the company envisions turning on your air purifier with a voice command. And the company states that the device can "faithfully recreate sounds that were originally recorded in the studio" thanks to its compatibility with high quality lossless files. Several new party speakers for music producers and party lovers are boosted with all-in-one feature combo that includes 1,800W output, karaoke modes, DJ capabilities, easy interfaces, durable form factor, and numerous connectivity options for downloading and streaming tracks.

Other products listed by LG are the sound bar and party speakers.

This is the LG ThinQ and it'll arrive at CES.
