Spring outdoor party with the LG portable speaker

Spring is reaching its peak, and that’s a great excuse to celebrate! With the right speakers, your favourite tunes will be wherever you are – at home or outdoors.

With spring comes blooming flowers and sunny days; and that means making a return to the BBQ, parties in the park and dusting off your swimwear.

And whether you’re spending the weekend hosting drinks in your home, revisiting your local pool or preparing for camping season, LG’s got you covered with the best audio speakers to have by your side.

When you host a spring party, plug in the LG ThinQ® speaker and play

The LG ThinQ® speaker will create an impressive atmosphere for when friends visit your home, thanks to Meridian audio and a built-in Google Assistant.

Should your guests demand some of Mozart’s finest work, or even cheesy 90s hits, the certified Hi-Res Audio and Meridian sound quality means their music – and your own when you take the reins! – will set the perfect mood. When your hands are full of drinks and food you can simply ask: “Hey Google, play some music,” and you’re all set.

And with built-in Chromecast, you can easily load programs like Youtube on your TV for great visuals alongside the music. The ThinQ® speaker will also be able to control your LG soundbars with the planned software updates later this year, so the music will sound even better.

Tech info:
Platform: Google Android Things (Chromecast built-in, Google Assistant, Weave)
Sound: 30W, Hi-Res Audio (192kHz/24bit), Sound Upconverting (Up to 96kHz/24bit), MERIDIAN Audio Partnership
