LG announces Chromecast-enabled soundbar and Assistant speaker

As with the other additions, LG will also be displaying the new LG SK10Y soundbar that comes with a 550W speaker, lossless audio technology, Chromecast support and 5.1.2 channels. It's shaped more like Amazon's Echo speakers than a Google Home, but it responds to all the OK Google commands you're already using. The company will formally launch the ThinQ smart speaker at the upcoming CES 2018 trade show in Las Vegas. Although LG has kept much of its technical details under the wraps - for now - the South Korean major has announced that the ThinQ smart speaker will be powered by the Google Assistant.

Meridian Audio has equipped this speaker with its "Bass and Space" technology that offers a rich, uncompromising sound, no matter where the individual is seated in the room. LG is marketing the speaker as a compliment to its own line of OLED and SUPER HD 2018 TVs. This device is also being presented as a high-resolution audio player, which has been enhanced by Meridian Audio.
