Whirlpool to help families keep moving without being tethered to their appliances, particularly laundry machines. Announced just ahead of CES 2019, Whirlpool’s innovative approach to laundry routines is through integrations with Wear OS by Google and also via its Smart Laundry appliances.
The new and improved Whirlpool Laundry app for Wear OS will tout the latest in personalized laundry prep and control from anywhere. More personalized and intuitive features in the new app include – Task Manager that will modernize chore assignments. It will help assign cleaning tasks to family members who will be prompted on their smart mobile devices to manage the laundry from anywhere, even when on-the-go.
Furthermore, families can create up to 30 customized cycles with the Download & Go Cycles feature. These can be pre-programmed cycles for every load and any fabric type. Also, Stain Guide functionality will help users with recommendations and suggested settings to remove stains from certain fabric types.
Along with that, Whirlpool will integrate simplified voice command capabilities with Assistant and Alexa-enabled devices for select Whirlpool smart laundry appliances. This means you’ll no longer need to state the specific brand when requesting to complete a cleaning task. CES 2019 will also witness the brand’s expansion in mobile watch functionality of its connected appliances to Wear OS.
“We’re dedicated to infusing our smart laundry appliances with leading-edge integrations and innovations that remove friction and get the job done smarter,” said Nelly Martínez Garza, Laundry Brand Manager, Whirlpool brand.
