Samsung Family Hub latest software update delivers further convenience, control and access in the connected kitchen

Samsung Electronics America released on Tuesday 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 range of connected features that enhance family connections, entertainment, food management and access to the smart devices in the home. It allows consumers to see inside the refrigerator from anywhere, manage family’s calendars, stream music and stay connected to what is most important: 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.

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.

Earlier this year, Family Hub set a new standard for connected living, by bringing the family together in the kitchen while freeing users up to focus on what’s important to them. With the Family Hub, consumers get access to simplified connectivity they’ve grown accustomed to, so that families can spend more time focusing on the things that matter most to them.

In 2019, with the new Family Board, a communal screen that family members can interact with in a personalized way, Family Hub helps foster true family connection, food management, and a connected home experience in today’s fast-paced modern world.

“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.”

Family Hub is now available nationwide and on 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.
