Starting in the spring of 2018, users will also be able to control their connected appliances straight through the Yummly app - a good sign that the brand plans to continue to invest in the platform as the center of their smart kitchen strategy in 2018. Consumers will be able to remotely communicate with their appliances through the Whirlpool app on Apple Watch in a variety of ways: ● Oven: Consumers will be able to see the current oven status and control commands during an active cycle.
The new features will be part of some Whirlpool appliances releasing this year. That's not exactly how Whirlpool put it, but the home appliances giant announced that soon you will be able to control more than 20 of its gadgets with the Apple Watch. For the washing machines, there will be an option to change the type of wash cycle. However, this clearly reflects how pervasive smart home tech has become - you can now buy most vital appliances and assume you'll get smart controls that adapt to whichever devices you have in your home.
Whirlpool Corp. said Monday it will activate Apple Watch functionality for its home appliances in early 2018. When you consider the humble fridge, oven, microwave and dishwasher it is hard to imagine how they could be "smart" beyond knowing how to heat our food. The app lets users find recipes suited to their tastes and cooking talents, limiting results to those without a despised ingredient or that will take less than half an hour to make.
