  • Includes five up-firing channels, including the world’s first center up-firing speaker – three on the soundbar and two in the separate rear speakers, that will improve clarity and enlarge the soundstage for the ultimate in realism.
  • Center up-firing speaker promises clearer dialogue and makes Dolby Atmos and DTS:X content even more immersive.
  • With IMAX Enhanced, users can enjoy stunning three-dimensional audio when watching compatible content, says the company.
  • Larger woofers offer a more premium audio quality with deep, resonant bass emulating the immersive sound system of a cinema
  • Upgraded wireless rear speakers get an upgrade from four channels to six, with four front/side drivers to accompany the two up-firing drivers.
  • Rear speakers are designed to distribute sound evenly across a wide 135-degree space, offering more speaker placement and angle flexibility, especially beneficial for smaller rooms.
  • The receiver is more sensitive compared to the older model, allowing for more distance between the soundbar and accompanying subwoofer and rear speakers without sacrificing sound quality. The stable connection eliminates drops or lags in audio output.
  • Meridian Audio’s Horizon technology in Music Mode that can up-mix two channel audio to 7.1-channels for more realistic acoustic surround sound.
  • Supports variable refresh rate (VRR) and auto low latency mode (ALLM) for console gaming to keep the audio and video in sync.
  • Supports Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa and other AI assistants to control streaming music, adjust volume and change sound modes and control streaming music with voice.
  • LG WOWCAST Wi-Fi audio dongle offers lossless muti-channel audio without connecting a cable to the TV.
  • When connected to a compatible LG TV, LG Soundbar takes advantage of the TV’s advanced AI Sound Pro feature to make all content sound clearer and more lifelike.
  • Cross-compatibility allows LG TV owners to use one remote to control both the TV and the soundbar.
  • Enhanced AI Room Calibration can tailor its sound output to any given space, analyzing the dimensions of the room to deliver more accurate low-frequncy audio that is calibrated for maximum accuracy.

LG said that its 2022 Soundbar lineup is designed with the environment in mind, with a lower carbon footprint throughout the entire product lifecycle. In addition to shipping in 100% paper packaging and using recycled plastic resin for its outer case, the new soundbar models utilize a new composite fiber material that is lighter to cut carbon emissions during shipping and transporting.

LG will showcase its 2022 Soundbar lineup, XBOOM 360, UltraGear Gaming Speaker and the TONE Free line-up of true wireless earbuds at the CES from January 4th.

Instagram subscribe feature

Inspired by the Facebook Subscription model, which was launched back in 2020, Instagram has also started testing the Subscription model in the US with some creators. However, the company is planning to expand access to more creators over the next few months.

At present, it has announced select creators. With the Subscription model, fans have to pay a monthly fee to access subscriber-only content from creators like exclusive Lives and Stories. The creators can set a monthly price of their choice, ranging from $0.99 to $99.99 per month.

Upon subscription, users will get a purple badge by their username so that creators can identify them easily. Further, they’ll be notified of exclusive broadcasts, where they’ll be able to engage more deeply with the creators. Notably, the subscriber-only Stories will be indicated with a purple ring.

“Earlier this year, as part of our continued commitment to supporting creators, we shared that Meta would not collect any fees from creators on Facebook Subscriptions purchases until 2023 at the earliest, and this will also apply to Instagram Subscriptions. Additionally, we believe that creators should know their audience and have more control over their business. We hope to build the tools to allow them to also directly connect with their audience off platform in the future,” mentions Instagram on its blog.

Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Meta, which owns Instagram, wrote in a Facebook post

I’m excited to keep building tools for creators to make a living doing creative work and to put these tools in more creators’ hands soon.
