The Family Hub’s advancements in technology and design combine intelligence with warmth
RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Samsung Electronics America, Inc., the number-one selling brand of major appliances1, has released software enhancements for its Family Hub Refrigerator that will allow existing and new owners to get the most out of their refrigerators. The updates will happen when owners accept the notification on their Wi-Fi connected Family Hub.
The Family Hub offers a wide range of connected features that enhance family connections, entertainment, food management and access to the smart devices in your home. It lets you see inside your refrigerator from anywhere, manage your family’s calendars, stream music and stay connected to what is most important: your family and home, whenever and wherever. The software updates are integrated into the refrigerator’s 21.5-inch LCD touch screen on the front of the refrigerator.
“We believe Family Hub is the heart of the home. Family Hub brings families together, fosters new ways to entertain, and simplifies shopping and meal preparation in the kitchen,” said John Herrington, Senior Vice President, General Manager of Home Appliances, Samsung Electronics America. “But as the connected home continues to evolve, we’re committed to making sure the Family Hub stays ahead of homeowners’ expectations. Our latest software updates provide smart capabilities that add convenience, control and access to the kitchen.”
With Samsung’s new software updates, the Family Hub delivers a new level of connected living. Family Hub can help users save even more time by allowing them to select their favorite recipe and pre-heat their Samsung oven right from their Family Hub screen. Users can now mirror and control their Samsung TVs and Samsung smartphones and open their favorite mobile apps like YouTube, Prime Video and Hulu right from the screen. Users can also answer calls hands free via Bluetooth allowing them to enjoy talking to family and friends, while finishing dinner with ease.
In addition to advancements in connected technology, Family Hub is now available in the latest Tuscan Stainless Steel finish, which launched this year. Inspired by earthy tones, Tuscan Stainless combines a variety of natural hues to create a grayish-bronze that boldly accentuates natural stone and wood surfaces, as well as warm paint colors. It also features stainless steel accents to complement a mix of appliance finishes that harmonize with the rest of the kitchen. Tuscan Stainless beautifully enhances the textures and materials found in today’s home designs.
Family Hub is now available nationwide and on Samsung.com in a range of configurations, including 4-Door Flex™, 4-Door French Door and 3-Door French Door. In addition to Tuscan Stainless Steel, it is also available in Black Stainless and Stainless Steel.
