  • LG Reveals Smart ThinQ Speaker with Google Assistant Before CES 2018

LG is hopping on to the smart speaker bandwagon with one of its own.

The device will compete with smart speakers such as Amazon's Echo lineup, Google's own Home smart speaker and Apple's soon-to-launch HomePod.

The device is said to show itself in all its glory during the 2018 CES event in January. Although LG has kept much of its technical details under the wraps - for now - the South Korean major has announced that the ThinQ smart speaker will be powered by the Google Assistant.

LG "ThinQ" can reportedly control smart home devices via Google Assistant and a voice app from the company that also controls other smart home appliances in the "ThinQ" line-up. Among this new line of new devices is the Chromecast-enabled Dolby Atmos soundbar, a smart speaker with Google Assistant built in, and a few portable Bluetooth speakers.


The ThinQ Speaker is called by LG as its "first premium smart AI audio product" that doubles up as a nifty smart home hub. For instance, users can turn on an LG appliance with the simple spoken command, "OK Google, talk to LG, turn on the air purifier". The company has also personally worked with Google in the development of the speaker. Meridian Audio has equipped this speaker with its "Bass and Space" technology that offers a rich, uncompromising sound, no matter where the individual is seated in the room.

The device is cylindrical shaped and also has LED lights.

LG has not provided any details regarding the pricing or the availability of any of these devices. It has been named as LG Think Q and will come up during the CES 2018. LG is confident that the amount of technology it has introduced into its audio products will definitely impress audiences.
