Does it mean the tv is "Chromecast-able"?

well you can cast to most tvs  theses days well not trough the cast option in the phone settings  but trought the apps ..you tube for exemple  you can  press the cast icon and send it to pretty much any tv  with  wifi  that allows  a phone connection   works on lg samsung, roku tv , sony , sharp  .. to  name a few  well it work on the 2017 lg fine  but  now what it means is that the 2o18 series  have   the google  assistant integrated   into it so  it acts  like a google home smart speaker  and can perform most tasks and request requests i believe and unless they decide otherwise it is  still limited meaning you cannot shop  have access on  sensitive data such as bank statememts   set reminders  or ask for an alarm   well   this  might have changed but  as for me  on every third party video devices that has the google assistant integrated    thoses functions dont work but since you can put an alarm on a tv i guess it could  now work  but  to give you an awnser to your specific question  YES it has chromecast built in so no more chromecast stick  and  as a bonus  it is voice controlled  so  you  can ask  for stuff  instead of browsing   from your phone first  and it  can turn on  the lights    and  other things

I bought a oled65B7P last december, not impressed and angry at LG not willing to upg to v4.0. The only way I figured to turn on this tv with Google Home and Alexa  was to buy a Logitech Harmony device.

Actually,  is it just an upgraded lg magic remote (same as "google assistant"  vs "Google Now") ?

      LG’s 2018 lineup of AI-enabled ThinQ TVs are going to be getting Google Assistant functionality in many of its international markets. Starting 8/24, Google Assistant will be available in Canada, Australia, and the UK, with support coming to South Korea, Spain, France, and Germany by the end of the year.
      LG’s ThinQ TVs came with integrated Google Assistant when they launched in the US and added support for Alexa commands soon after. The built-in ThinQ AI, which runs on LG’s own WebOS can be used for TV-specific commands, such as “search for the soundtrack of this movie,” while Google Assistant and Alexa can be used as a smart home hub. You can basically use the TV the same way you’d use your Google Home by speaking commands into the mic on your remote.
      LG is also planning on bringing Amazon Alexa support to Australia and Canada in the future, but no time is specified yet.

      Hi, 
       
      I bought this TV in Israel but it doesn't have the option to set Google Assistant in it, It's running WebOS 4.0 but for some reason LG decided to remove it from the models they sell here. 
      Can I manually install the apps on my tv? 
      Can I install the US firmware instead?
