The announcement comes less than a month after Google had stated that it is working with appliance makers to integrate Google Assistant.

Expanding its connected appliance initiative, LG Electronics has equipped nearly 87 of its appliances, including air conditioners, vacuums and air purifiers, with Google Assistant on Google Home compatibility.

While I do not have any LG connected smart appliances in my house, this new integration with Google Assistant will make me look closer at them next time I purchase an appliance. The Assistant on Google Home can also distinguish one voice from another for personalization.

Taking connected convenience further, LG SmartThinQ learns more about a consumer's usage patterns and helps predict their needs.

Google Assistant has received a small but useful update that allows users to search specific information or service through a search bar. The more a consumer uses LG smart appliances, the smarter the appliances get.

From today, Australian customers who own the Logitech Harmony Elite, Harmony Companion, and Harmony Hub will be able to bring up the Google Assistant at will using the usual "OK, Google" voice commands.

Per LG's Home Appliance & Air Solution Company's President, Song Dae-hyun, "LG makes it especially easy for consumers to connect and interact with Wi-Fi built into virtually all of its 2017 appliances. With new ways to control your home, a future-ready open platform, and the most extensive range of connected appliances available today, LG smart appliances will change the way you think - and the way you live - for the better". "Our collaboration with Google is an example of our strategy of Open Partnership, Open Platform, and Open Connectivity".
