Latest Refrigerator Trends
Many manufacturers are trying to enhance refrigerators by adding high-tech features.
More and more new models come with WiFi connectivity and a companion smartphone app, allowing you to remotely change fridge settings and temperatures, receive alerts if a door is left open, and (if the fridge has cameras) view the contents of your fridge while you’re out grocery shopping. For example, Samsung has added large touchscreens to many of its French-door and side-by-side models, complete with apps for finding recipes, ordering groceries, watching TV, playing music, and controlling smart home devices. LG has models with windows for seeing what’s inside without opening the door, as well as a Craft Ice feature that makes large ice balls for cocktails and spirits. GE even makes French doors with a built-in Keurig coffee maker. But these features have been slow to catch on.
