With great partners like Google, we expect there to be many more exciting AI news to come from LG.

No word on pricing yet or exact availability, but we'll let you know when more information becomes available.

Yonhap has learned that users of LG's new AI TVs can change channels using voice commands for Google Assistant. "Beyond the unrivaled picture quality that LG TVs deliver, LG's partnership with Google creates a true visual hub for information and connectivity in the home".

Through the Google Assistant, users can access their Google accounts to check schedules or enjoy photos saved on Google Photos, a photo storage and sharing service.

While you can decide to return to the safety of the stable release of Android, your device will be wiped clean. Now, if you slide up from the home button on the bottom of the screen, you'll see all of your app icons.

The Google Assistant expands on the LG TV's voice command capabilities by allowing LG TV owners to control TV operations, discover and access content from a variety of sources and incorporate the power of Google Search right in your TV. Users can even learn more about their desired films by simply saying the character or actor name. Just as Google Home Mini and Google Home Max were a big focus for Google Assistant last fall, smart displays have been the big focus as of the beginning of this year in regards to Google's Assistant hardware push, and now it seems like consumers only have a few months longer to wait before they can incorporate them into their daily lives. Google further said that Smart displays from JBL, Lenovo, LG will be based on the Qualcomm SD624 Home Hub Platform and the one from Sony will be based on the MediaTek MT8173 SoM.

Google Assistant will now be available on LG AI TV line-up.

LG OLED TVs and LG SUPER UHD TVs with ThinQ AI and the Google Assistant will be available in the United States starting in May with key markets in Europe and Asia to follow.
