Browser update for LG smart tv


Question

We recently purchased an LG Oled TV:  OLED55B6P

We tried to access our photo library in Google Photos using the LG's web browser. We initially got access but after a few minutes we were kicked out and a message advised that we had to "Update the Browser" and links to the major browsers appeared. When we selected any of the browsers and attempted to upload a browser update we were informed by another message the this tv "Does not support downloads".  We can no longer open Google Photos.   Other sites seem to be accessible through the browser - the only one we can't access it seems - is Google Photos.

Questions:
1.  How do we update the LG's browser so that we can access Google Photos?

2.  Is there any other way to access Google Photos?

Our computer is an iMac and we have iPads and iPhones.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

I recently bought an LG 43UN7300 AUD to replace a failing plasma display in our kitchen. We also have a larger Sony smart tv in our living room. We are about to cut the chord with Directv. I have been trying for a couple of days to get our Amazon Prime video account to work on the new set. I have come to the conclusion that Amazon Prime requires a newer version of the Google Chrome browser than came with the tv and there is no way for we poor purchasers to update it. LG is about to announce the release of webOS 6 in their newest models and it is not yet clear whether they will upgrade those of us with "old" (< 2 months) sets. This kind of customer support is simply an unacceptable way to do business. I sure hope they fix what needs fixing!

      Hey, I have a LG OLED65CX TV (latest WebOS) and  some photos from my Synology NAS are not loading, only in thumbnails like this:
       
      Most photos work perfectly but some not. They are scans from a photobook and then individually cut in Zoner but that shouldn't matter right? Here are properties of one of the photos

      I really don't know the reason my TV and it makes me really mad since it took a long time co scan these.
      Weird thing is I also scanned other positive film photos and they work great on TV.
      Do you know what might be the problem?

      LG 55SJ8500 USA running 05.80.55
       
      Just notified that software update 06.00.05
      is available for my tv, presently running
      05.80.55.
       
      Has anyone installed this update? How did it go?
       
      I typically wait for 1 to 2 weeks to see if there is any negative feedback.
       
      Thanks

      I play video files from a USB stick via the Photos and Videos app - is there any way to show which files have been played most recently? I generally watch downloaded series but tend to forget which episode I watched last!
