LG Introduces a new Magic Remote that Understands Natural Language

The new remote also brings the ability to control other devices, so there’s no need to keep switching remotes.

The LG Magic Remote has gotten another update and this time it brings with it a few pieces of much needed functionality, namely the ability to control multiple devices instead of just your TV. It may not be the flashiest addition, but it sure does make the thing that much more practical.

Another new addition is the addition of Natural Language support. With Natural Language you can speak more, well, naturally. LG’s example: “users can simply say "Show me Gang-nam Style video" and the new Magic Remote will understand.” Other users can finally be over the whole Gang-nam Style thing and move on to one of the myriad other K-Pop sensations.

LG hasn’t detailed individual availability or pricing, but they will be showing off the new Magic Remote at CES this year.
