LG is launching a new service called HomeChat, which basically lets you talk to your smart appliances – from washing machines, televisions and the cleaning robot that LG has. It is pretty much self-explainatory: you send a message to your appliance to, for example, turn the oven on or start the cleaning robot. HomeChat also includes natural language processing, so you don’t have to learn a set of commands.

It will be available for those on the LINE messaging service in Japan, though it is expected to be available on all messaging services soon.
