4.0 update for 2016-17 Smart TV

Question

When will the 4.0 update be available for my 2016-17 LG Smart TV?  I just got Alexa and can't use it for the TV unless it has the 4.0 version.  Model #70UH6350-UB.

I recently asked LG support to look into this for me, and though I don't have my hopes up for full 4.x on the 2016 and 2017 sets (be it a matter of performance, developer time, or lack of customer complaints), it would *really* be nice to at least get a teaser or two (like Assistant and Alexa support) backported to 3.3 and 3.5.

LG could certainly earn some valuable loyalty points by falling in with the cool kids- the ones who roll out major system updates for years ;)

I can’t believe there aren’t more people requesting an update to fix this integration issue with Alexa devices.

Ya don't hold your breath. There will be no updates and very few good apps from WebOS. Never has been. Get a tv that has Android or get an android box and forget about WebOS. That is just for running your LG tv. Kind of like trying to install a Google app on an IPad.

Good point- app developers don't like to waste their time on disposable platforms.

Still waiting on the follow-up I was promised by LG customer support... 🙄
