The update that enables "hands-free" voice interaction (without the aid of the remote control) with Alexa is also being distributed in Italy on some LG TVs in the 2020 range. The added features are the same as those already half August have enriched the equipment of the American models. Users no longer have to use the microphone on the remote to interface with Amazon's voice assistant.
The commands are received through the microphones on the televisions themselves and therefore do not require pressing the Prime Video button on the Magic Remote. The products that can be updated are the following:
- 8K ZX Series
- Wallpaper WX Series
- Gallery GX Series
- NANO99 Series
Alexa can be used to play music, listen to news, the weather or control "smart" devices. The update also includes new options including smart home camera support, timers, alarms, reminders, announcements and notifications.
To enable Alexa, simply register by holding down the Prime Video button for a few seconds or go to the Alexa app from the menu bar from the home screen on LG TVs. After registration, simply say "Alexa" and then a command to start the voice interaction. All functions are available both in "hands-free" mode and with a long press of the Prime Video button.
