LG G6 To Feature Google Assistant Or Alexa

The upcoming LG G6 could use artificial intelligence (AI) technologies supplied by either Google and or Amazon.

According to CNET, if LG were to bring Google Assistant to the upcoming device G6, it would make LG the first smartphone brand outside of Google to use the Assistant.

That is ahead of competitors like Samsung and its forthcoming Galaxy S8. So far, the Google Pixel and Pixel XL are the only phones to use Google’s AI assistant.

LG is also possible to consider using Amazon’s Alexa assistant in the LG G6, behind Huawei’s Mate 9 for the US. The South Korean tech giant has already integrated Alexa into some of its devices, such as the SmartThinQ Hub and Instaview refrigerator.

On Friday, Business Korea reported that “LG Electronics is strengthening cooperation with global companies, such as Google and Amazon, as part of its efforts to promote its sluggish smartphone business.”

So whether LG will get Google or Amazon as the mobile AI for the G6 smartphone, we will know next month.
