LG debuts a smart fridge you can talk to

Alexa integration is everywhere at CES 2017. The latest gadget to integrate with Amazon’s digital assistant? LG’s new Smart InstaView refrigerator.

The smart fridge integrates with various Amazon services including Amazon Fresh, Alexa and Music. But why would anyone want to control their smart lights and music from their fridge?

LG’s answer is apparently “why not?” With Amazon Fresh, you can re-order new groceries right from the fridge’s screen. With Alexa, you can control your smart home even if you don’t have an Echo in installed in your kitchen. And Amazon Music support means you can control and play music while you’re enjoying your meals.

The InstaView fridge also has a built-in panorama camera so you can see which groceries you need to stock up on when you’re away, like at the grocery store. Wondering if you’re out of eggs? No problem. Just check the camera feed using a phone app.

Moreover, the fridge has a huge 29-inch touchscreen display on the front. LG says the InstaView refrigerator will be available nationwide sometime this year.
