Panasonic announced it's creating a new line of home appliances that can be controlled by an Android app.
The new appliances, including an air conditioner, washing machine and refrigerators, will allow users to set them from outside the home, according to PC World. The wired appliances work off of near-field communication (NFC) technology which can be transmitted wirelessly.
Panasonic's smart app has also been used for refrigerators, which can let users know if the machines are running efficiently, as well as track calories consumed. The app will also let them set their wash cycle.
