I agree, I just spent an ungodly amount of money on this TV, only to find out it does not support chromecast, and does not work with google home.

Where as all the ingredients are there, you should be able to apply an update, or provide it as an app pretty dang easily.

Come on LG, that is the only negative thing I can say about the TV, and it should be easy enough to implement.

For those of you who are impatient like me there is a work around. Purchase the Harmony companion /home control remote. you can set it up to work on the LG TV fairly easy, and then get google home to sync with it. it's a bit of a process, and you'll want to set up many routines to simplify the commands, but it is doable, and functional.

You can also set the tv up as a wireless monitor, but the lag creates a horrible audio sync issue that makes it impractical for watching media that way.

and you can also purchase a chromecast, but once again where all the ingredients are already there, that seems like a waste of a perfectly good hdmi port, and an unnecessary expense. 

I paid enough for the TV, you should throw that in, and the sooner the better please.

I imagine that it is a licensing cost that LG do not want to add on to the cost of their sets, as well as having to re-write the code to work with webOS.  Currently it appears that those manufacturers that do offer Chromecast capability are those that either do not have their own smart platform, or are licensing Android TV:

      Model: 42UB700T-TH version 03.02.25. Has not got any software update since  3-4 Years - What a mess...…
      This TV is just a random box now... Once purchased this model - new version from LG was introduced; making this just a playing box...
      None of the recent OTT's can be installed..
      We need a fix or else some solution to it.
      Its really a disheartening experience after being loyal to this brand in any appliance we purchase.

      Hi,
      My TV is driving me nuts!
       
      I keep getting reminders for programs starting for programs I don’t watch or have never watched and 2. The tv even switches on for scheduled programs that I haven’t set.. actually I have only ever set one program reminder and that has now been deleted.
       
      I can’t see any programs in the reminder page or anywhere in the tv programmer?
       
      Short of resetting the tv I don’t know what else to try? And I don’t really want to do that until I know how the tv ended up like this? Plus I don’t want to have to reload and sign in to all my apps 😬

      I hope LG will consider to enable the Disney+ Hotstar Apps for Model 2016 LG TV. My LG TV Model is 55UH617T.  I've raised this concern few times and hope LG will take necessary action.

      Anyone have a problem with this app running on LG 4K TV?
      iPlayer app constantly buffers or locks up
      I switch to NOW TV box (not app) & can watch  iPlayer without an issue.
      Also NETFLIX & other catch up apps  work without any buffering or locking.
      Interested to hear your thoughts....
