If the name ‘AI ThinQ’ sounds familiar, that’s because LG also has ‘SmartThinQ’ connected home appliances. The LG V30S+ and LG G7 smartphones also come with an AI that’s simply called ‘ThinQ.’ And you should know that the 2018 OLED and Super UHD TVs also support Google Assistant — except not yet in Singapore.
It’s all a little confusing, but here’s what you should know about how AI works on LG‘s new TVs.
What is ThinQ?
ThinQ is what LG calls the artificial intelligence (AI) in its 2018 products. The name is derived from the phrase “think of you” and the word “cue.” LG says that the word “cue” conveys the intention to act, which is the purpose of LG’s AI-enabled products.
What’s the difference between AI ThinQ and ThinQ?
AI ThinQ is basically ThinQ, but it’s what LG calls ThinQ on its 2018 OLED and Super UHD TVs.
What can you actually do with AI ThinQ?
Think of AI ThinQ as a personal assistant living on the TV. Just press and hold on the microphone button on the remote and speak your request.
You can use your voice to do things like turn the TV off, the volume up or down, change inputs, change picture mode settings, and so on. You can also search for content on Netflix, with requests like “show me all Marvel movies,” or get weather updates from the internet.
How is this different from 2017’s smart TVs?
LG’s 2017 smart TVs support voice search too. But 2018 AI ThinQ TVs enable voice commands to control the TV.
Any other smart features?
The new TVs can also function as smart home hubs. So you’ll be able to control other smart home devices like robot vacuum cleaners, air conditioners, smart lights, and others that can connect to the TV via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.
What about the picture quality? Any improvements there?
Yup, there’s a new α (Alpha) 9 processor which enables all sorts of upgrades. We go deep into the TVs’ sound and image quality updates here.
What happened to webOS then?
Six years after LG introduced OLED technology to the home entertainment market, the company’s OLED TVs continue to be singled out by experts for delivering the best picture quality available. What Hi-Fi?, a popular British tech publication, chose LG’s 55-inch and 65-inch OLED AI ThinQ TVs (mod...
