All 2018 LG ThinQ TV Now Support Alexa Voice Commands

The LG SmartThinQ Skill can be found in Alexa app skills section.


When it comes to smart TV innovation, LG with its webOS platform have been pushing the boundaries for years and now, their LG ThinQ TV is bridging the smart home gap. This year, the company’s mission is to make their TVs and other home appliances smarter with their ThinQ-branded appliances. Since LG’s announcement for the ‘ThinQ’ initiative, we’ve seen the company integrate Google assistant to the TVs.

The company is now rolling out support for Amazon’s Alexa, this means that all their 2018 LG ThinQ TV (OLEDs and LCD-based Super UHDs) will now support voice commands from Alexa-enabled devices like the Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Echo Show, Echo Spot, and Echo Plus devices. Users can now switch channels, toggle TV volume, play/pause, start, stop, fast-forward and browse available content.

This collaboration between LG and Amazon will enable consumers to control their 2018 LG AI-enabled TVs via voice commands to their existing Alexa-enabled devices – including Amazon Echo, Echo Show, Echo Dot, Echo Spot and Echo Plus – and access numerous TV functions including volume, play, pause, start, stop, fast forward controls*, channel selection and content search. Users can experience easy-to-use voice capabilities on their 2018 LG AI TVs, including OLED and LG Super UHD TVs with AI ThinQ, simply by asking Amazon Alexa. For example, you can now issue voice commands such as, “Alexa, turn up the volume on my living room TV” or “Alexa, change the channel to CNN on my kitchen TV.” You can also open specific LG webOS Smart TV apps by saying “Alexa, ask LG to launch YouTube on my bedroom TV.”LG Electronics USA

Just like LG’s AI enabled smartphones, LG is calling this new Alexa skill  “LG SmartThinQ Skill.” All you have to do to enable this feature is to search for “LG SmartThinQ Skill” in your Alexa app to install it. See the link below for a full list of all LG AI-enabled TVs.
