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 have the exact same problem and question.  Someone needs to answer this.  An update is needed that either allows the user to update the Chrome browser or an updated browser needs to be be included in the next FW.

Thx!
