LG Unveils ThinQ Google Assistant Speaker Ahead of CES 2018

LG today unveiled its new ThinQ smart speaker ahead of CES 2018 where the device will be on display. While we don’t know much about the speaker, we do know it’ll be powered by the Google Assistant for voice interactions. LG says it worked with Google to ensure all available commands for an Assistant smart home speaker were available on the ThinQ on top of commands to control LG’s own smart home appliances.
