LG is a major player in the smart TV market and it has taken a slightly different route compared to some of its rivals by sticking with its webOS platform instead of Android TV. The platform has served its smart TV range well and the company continues to improve the platform by adding features that are trending with users. It has already integrated Google Assistant with its smart TVs and now Amazon’s Alexa digital personal assistant is supported on LG’s 2018 smart TVs.

LG says that it has added support for both Google Assistant and Alexa to provide users with the most comfortable smart home experience. The added support will certainly come in handy when you can’t find the TV’s remote as well.

All 2018 LG OLED TVs and Super UHD TVs that feature ThinQ AI are now compatible with Alexa-enabled devices. What that means is that users with an Alexa-enabled device such as an Amazon Echo can now control their LG smart TV using that device through voice commands given to Alexa.

They will be able to accomplish tasks such as switching channels, adjusting the volume, browsing content, and even launching private YouTube streams in another room through voice commands that they give to an Alexa-enabled device which will then relay them to the LG TV.
