In Brief

The refrigerator lets users search recipes, play music, and place grocery orders

LG has introduced a new refrigerator powered by the webOS smart platform, with a number of features provided by Amazon’s Alexa. The Smart InstaView offers a 29-inch touch LCD display that instantly turns transparent if the user knocks on the screen twice, so they can see what’s inside without opening the door.

Alexa enables consumers to search recipes, request music, place Prime-eligible orders from Amazon.com, and add items to a shopping list. They can also set up memos and to-do lists on the screen, or add tags to indicate the kind of food stored inside and its expiration date, so the fridge can provide reminders.
