TVs will also include Bixby, Samsung's voice-controlled digital assistant, and will be able to double as a central hub for smart products around the home, letting users do everything from see who is at the front door to adjust the thermostat. The SmartThings app seamlessly connects the Family Hub with hundreds of Samsung and third party compatible connected devices. But it'll also all hook into Samsung's SmartThings hub app, allowing you to control your myriad IoT devices by way of your TV. If I decide to switch from one assistant to another, it's a whole lot easier to replace a $50 speaker than it is to replace a $1,500 TV. The HARMAN Ignite platform for automobiles will also fall under this unified system, allowing users to manage their home devices from their vehicle. So now, in addition to seeing what's inside their fridge from the grocery store or leaving a note on the White Board to remind the kids to clean their rooms after school, users can do countless other things without ever leaving the kitchen. Samsung has also added two new food-centric apps: Meal Planner is a food management app that provides recipes while accounting for food preferences and dietary restrictions. The company is working closely with the Open Connectivity Forum, the world's largest IOT standardization body, to have all SmartThings-compatible products work with the app.

The latest iteration of Samsung's smart fridge can sync up food storage with meal preparation, keep family members better connected, and play music from a wide variety of services.

As an example of something you can do with Bixby on your fridge, users can ask, "What's new?" and get tailored responses featuring upcoming calendar events, weather information, news, and more.

If you don't fancy hearing all the awful meetings you have coming up then you might want to use the speaker system, which can stream music directly from your connected smartphone to be broadcast through the high-quality AKG speakers built into the doors.

With innovative TV and music options, the original Family Hub transformed the kitchen into an area for socializing with family and friends. Samsung also continues to collaborate with key partners including allrecipes, ring, and Grubhub to further refine and enhance the kitchen experience and promote smart lifestyle choices. The next stage of the company's mission is to incorporate Bixby into an even broader array of devices.
