That’s why GE Appliances was proud to roll out SmartHQ Solutions, the first suite of smart solutions that spans across the full product appliance lifecycle. We continue to look for ways to enhance the smart appliance experience for our customers and owners, and, as an example, our integration with Sonos wireless sound systems is not only an industry first, but more evidence of our commitment to being the smartest appliance brand.
