We need skype on WebOS 2.0 .. I bought the TV for using skype and now its useless. without proper apps smart TV is useless. I dint expect this unavailability of skype in LG smart TV. Now i feel like it was a wrong decision to go for an LG smart tv.

Agree.  I've been having a constant battle of wills with LG over the complete absence of any actual quality apps in their 'app store'.  I've been a Plex subscriber/User for ages and they haven't even sorted out that one in WebOS2, however if you want a pile of trash that originates in China or such then yep, the LG Store is the place to go.

 

LG are completely ambivalent about their customers.  You get automated responses that don't actually help or even provide a possible timeline etc for the issues.  

 

For those mentioning the likes of Skype, I think WebOS1 did have it earlier on, but it's disappeared, undoubtedly because LG wouldn't pay for it.

 

I'm currently on my 5th LG TV, up until this point I've always had a good opinion of them, but this is the last time after nearly 10 months of BS, product fails, and the complete s**t that is their customer proposition, well, I'll  be looking elsewhere when I next buy a TV.

    • IPv6 support please

      It's 2016 now. IPv6 has been around since 1997. Some countries are close to 50% deployment of IPv6. Even my home printer supports IPv6. The Linux kernel, on which webOS is based has been supporting a stable IPv6 implementation since the 2.6 kernel series.   This was certainly my main disappointment when I bought a LG Smart TV.

    • Question: files on USB device shown as ._xxx.jpg

      To have a picture  show on my new LG OLED55B87LC I've connected an external USB 3.0 hard disk (formatted with MS-DOS FAT32 on my iMac) that I've filled with hundreds of pictures from my Fotos App.  But when I open this drive on the TV the jpg pictures (numbered 1.jpg to 999.jpg) show up as ._1.jpg to ._999.jpg. When I scroll down at the end the list then the real jpg`s appear. So it looks like there's a copy of each file on this drive starting with  ._  ?? And all of them can't be shown on the TV - they look faulty ?  I've tried out with another drive / USB stick - just the same problem. Does anyone experience the same problems ? Do USB devices have to be formatted in a special way ? Any idea how to solve this ? 

      Ah - and beside this strange thing - is it normal that it last that long for the system of the TV to create all the thumbnail pictures to show on the TV ? When I scroll through a long list of pictures it lasts always a few seconds until the icons of the pictures really show the contents. This is really annoying because it makes the feature useless if I need several minutes to find a picture I'm searching for. Why is it that slow ? Is the USB connection only with 2.0 Standard ? Or is it a performance problem of WebOS ?

    • Built In Chromecast

      Would love to see an app or webOS update that has a chromecast built in - so we can chromecast to the TV without requiring the google cast hdmi dongle.  would be especially useful since there aren't too many featured apps (hbo go, etc) and these apps support google cast.  Any plans to do this?
