From Google TV to Apple TV, from DLNA to Apple AirPlay; not to count all the other options. Today, LG announced that it will be the first company to incorporate another standard called "AllJoyn"; an open source software framework giving users a new level of interoperability between devices. AllJoyn, developed by Qualcomm Innovation Center, is designed to create a common language that seamlessly connects the Internet of Things, regardless of brand or operating system (OS). This new multi-device environment opens up a raft of possibilities for LG Smart TV owners.
