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.

Thanks for coming onboard!
We're excited to have you.
