Lg washer and dryer talk to me, one day they can talk to Alexa or Siri
The official LG ThinkQ app works and it’s generally easy to setup and play with. It talks to your phone by notifying you when Laundry is done and when to empty your dryer. You can also set it up so if you are at the office, you can turn it on. Very cool. Also talked to my C7 Oled tv (non ThinkQ) and my new LG 4K tv. Setup can be better. You have to setup to your 2.4g router so if you have a dual router (like most of them now) it will try to connect to 5g but might fail. So that’s an easy problem. Temporary disable your second band. We encountered this on the washer but not on the dryer. So far the only disappointment is the Alexa connection. It simply doesn’t work. Even when following all the setup and download the Alexa Lg skill - the app doesn’t talk. Would be nice to have this fixed. Perhaps you can say Alexa how are my clothes and she can respond 15 mins left. Right now (June 2020) they are not talking. Would be even better to talk to Siri for iPhone. However the notifications do come to your iPhone just fine. All in all a good app. Don’t like the ads above but you can turn them off
Don’t get this
This is a little long, but it is a full description of chaos.
We just bought a new LG fridge, so I naturally loaded their Wi-Fi app. It seemed a little clunky to get going, but then evened out. I was a little concerned that they had their own network name, but it reverted to our home Wi-Fi when finished. That’s when the fun started, though. I started noticing my phone was acting differently, and finally, I couldn’t open apps that I’ve used for years. I kept getting a “Slow Connection” message in the app. I finally came to the realization that the last thing changed on the phone was installing the LG app, so I deleted it, but still had the same problems. In an Apple support site (accessed through my iPad where I hadn’t run the LG app) I was told to do a few things, one of which was to do a network reset. That started up, but froze with the Apple logo and a progress bar showing. I couldn’t even do a power down. After a trip to the nearest Apple store, where the staff graciously got me in w/o an appointment, we finally got to my latest iCloud backup, and was able to restore my phone to working order.
All this, from just trying to use an app. THIS IS A BAD ONE - DON’T USE IT!!!!! I just feel fortunate that I’m close enough to an Apple store to go get the help I needed. I’ve been using Apple equipment for over 7 years, and have never before needed to restore one from backup, but I’m sure glad I had it on.

Works ok with smart oven
I have this for an oven and it’s ok just not really necessary. In theory you can preheat your oven remotely but you must first have the remote knob turned on your stove before you can use it, so you have to prepare ahead of time or I guess always leave your oven set to remote start. It can notify you when the oven is preheated but if I’m on VPN I don’t get notifications and can not connect which is kind of unfortunate. It also sent me an alert saying my oven needed to be cleaned, although it’s pretty much spotless, I’m guessing it just is a time response. Has a diagnostic feature which I’m not sure what it does because it runs really quick. Needs to offer options to fine tune the oven and update settings instead of doing them at the oven. Like adjust temp, turning off convection adjustment, updating clock.... This isn’t an app issue but one with LG, LG needs to release a firmware update to let you change how quickly the time button increases time. If you hold down briefly when adding time it does it in 10 minute increments.
