LG Electronics announced that it has developed integrated Google Cast casting capabilities for LG smart hotel TVs. Hyatt is working with LG in the hopes of becoming the first hospitality brand to enable the deployment of these new integrated LG smart hotel TVs later this year. Hyatt through SONIFI, a casting partner that provides casting to more than 500,000 industry rooms, is assisting in the LG-Google next-generation casting solution for new and existing Hyatt hotels around the world.

Using a QR code on the TV, LG says guests will be able to quickly establish a cast connection and begin wirelessly streaming videos, music and more from their devices. In addition to mobile device controls, the TV remote can also be used for typical play, track and volume controls, ensuring a “simple and familiar” user experience. Then, when guests check out, devices will automatically be reset.

The company says the 2024 LG Pro:Centric smart hotel TVs will receive the new Google Cast feature through a software update later this year. As the leading television provider to the U.S. lodging and hospitality industry, according to the company, LG says it offers a range of smart hotel TVs from 43 inches to 75 inches with up to 4K resolution to suit virtually every space from standard guestrooms to penthouse suites. The powerful LG Pro:Centric Smart software enables use of modern solutions including content streaming, interface customization and even networked digital signage capabilities.
