There are several hot new trends underway in the appliance industry. As far as appliance styling goes, by far the biggest trend right now is black stainless steel appliances. And when it comes to functionality, the hottest buzzword is smart appliances.
Smart appliances or connected appliances are being offered by several manufacturers, and several other brands have them in the works for late 2017 and into 2018. Samsung, LG, GE and Whirlpool are among the brands that currently have products on the market or are in the process of rolling out products in the smart appliance category.
In this article, we take a look at what LG has to offer in the smart appliance space.
So what are smart appliances, anyway? Broadly defined, smart appliances are appliances that can be controlled through a smartphone, or your favorite virtual home assistant like Alexa or Google Home. These appliances come in every category, from cooking appliances to refrigerators, washers and dryers. Their purpose is to help consumers by adding convenience and control in the context of today's fast-paced and connected lifestyle.
LG is one of the leaders in the smart appliance space and one of the first to introduce connected appliances. Let's take a closer look at a few LG smart appliances to learn more about what they offer.
