What a ripoff!!!!  It says connect a "Smartphone".  I have an iPhone, that everyone in the world would consider a "Smartphone".  It isn't until after I bought the TV and got into the connection process that they define a "Smartphone" as not including an iPhone.  That is just totally misleading!!!!!  If they don't support iOS then they should make that *very* clear up front.

I tried it on our ipad mini and it worked. The app was... well crap but it worked. They really need to work on the ui and remove the "connecting with device" message that appears constantly. Also, they should provide support for other content services like google, dropbox, onedrive. We have nothing stored locally, everything in the cloud. Samsung has this, why not LG?

      New Upgrade Offers a Customizable Interface for TV Brand Partners,
      More Content and Convenience for Users

      SEOUL, Oct. 6, 2022 — LG Electronics (LG) has expanded its smart TV platform business with the recent rolling out of its webOS Hub, an upgraded version of its webOS solution for third-party partners. Delivering more customization options to smart TV makers and more convenience and content to end-users, webOS Hub will be available to an expanded network of 200 partner brands including Seiki, Eko, Stream System, Konka, Aiwa and Hyundai – a ten-fold increase from when LG commenced licensing its webOS ecosystem in early 2021.
      More than just a smart platform, webOS Hub comes with support from LG’s technology partners, such as Dolby, Realtek, Gracenote and CEVA, and has been certified by more than 160 broadcasters from around the globe. The new upgrade further demonstrates the company’s commitment to extending the ultimate user experience to more consumers worldwide.
      webOS Hub makes it possible for brands to customize the user interface (UI) in a variety of ways, such as fine-tuning the Home screen by selecting the color scheme, applying a visual style consistent with their identity or inserting a logo for visibility. By providing the capability to tailor webOS Hub, LG is enabling smart TV manufacturers to differentiate their offerings while delivering a more expansive and enjoyable user experience.
      With enhanced usability and personalization features, webOS Hub provides users with a curated selection of content to check out based on their tastes and preferences. A real time-saver, Next Pick1 recommends up to three live programs, from broadcast stations or a connected set-top box, as well as one VOD title or app. Additionally, the new update supports LG’s Magic Explorer, which displays information relevant to the content being played, such as actor bios and filming locations.
      webOS Hub also provides an improved viewing experience with Clear Voice PRO, a feature that makes onscreen dialogue much easier to hear. As with its predecessor, webOS Hub carries major content streaming services such as Netflix, Disney+, Prime Video and LG’s free, premium content service, LG Channels. Joining these are new streaming services such as Fubo TV, with popular cloud gaming service like NVIDIA GeForce NOW to be added as well.
      Along with access to a diverse range of high-quality content, LG’s comprehensive solution for smart TVs presents an array of cutting-edge features, such as advanced picture processing, variable refresh rate (VRR) support2 and the Game Optimizer, which offers finetuned picture and audio settings for different game genres. The first webOS Hub-powered OLED TVs from LG’s partner TV brands will be launching soon, providing more users with the outstanding features and value already familiar to LG customers worldwide.
      “We are committed to refining and expanding our webOS Hub ecosystem, which continues to introduce more and more consumers to the unparalleled user experience of LG webOS,” said Park Hyoung-sei, president of the LG Home Entertainment Company.
      Over 120 million third-party devices in 150 countries are now powered by webOS – a number that is set to grow with the availability of the new and improved webOS Hub.

      According to the specs my OLED55BX9LB is supposed to run webos 5.0, but the firmware update claims 04.40.15 is the most recent version. How comes?

      When I try to go to a TV programme via the remote control voice option, the TV tries to look up the channel on the app I'm on, instead of going straight to the TV channel on the antenna. This used to work without any problems up until a couple of days ago. Any help appreciated.

      I have a couple of LG OLEDs in shared spaces, with external speakers, one via optical and the other via analog jack (confusingly named headphones). Whenever bluetooth headphones are used and then disconnected, the TV reverts to "internal" terrible audio. For non-technical people this is permanent. Do I have to train everyone to select the device from the long list or can I set a default?
