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.

yeah it sucks  and my tv released   on november 2nd 2017 ...  and    they rereleased the same model    one month later in the 2018 series with  bluetooth  magic remote  smart thinq and google assistant   build in  the exact same model   one month apart i got so pissed  and basicaly  i had bought an android tv by sony  but best buy coudnt find it  to deliver so they sent me a lg instead  .... and  i didn y had a choice    as it was holiday  time  and didnt want to spend another month witjout tv  but that said  it is so stupid that tv has miracast  which  i can cast from youtube   on my phone    but i cannot cast my screen     as we need to use  lg stupid app that only let you cast  songs photos and videos  not    your screen .... and   even i can cast to youtube i cannot do it trought the assistant    that aint supported .... wrost than that the tv has the smartthinq app  installed to control any smartthinq devices  but we cannot control   the tv    with smartthinq  on other devices   and seriously ....  i dont care not having the assistant built in since i already have alexa and google homes in every rooms   so it woudnt be hard to add  google home.and alexa smart speakers to control the tv ....  it is supposed to be smart after all    and has miracast, wifi , dlna and can connect to any  network attached storage wirelessly  so  technically   i would be able  to use a google home on it   i can even  control a old roku 1  with the google home for god sake and i was able to    turn on  my old 2012 sony     which was  kinda the first smart tvs having a web browser netflix youtube and maybe 5 other useless apps   but no appstore  but stil i could power on   with google assistant  or alexa i dont remember which the as the tv died last  fall so in my opiniom they just dont care to support anything not from this year  which is bad business   and when they announced webos 4  they said their current tvs  with web3.5 and up  would get webos 4 but  that was not the case at the end    and aside from spotify , newsy, youtube  prime and netflix  the apps  are useless in  america  they cannot even put apps for stuff we have here     and i ll never buy  again  and my tv was praised by gamers so   they probably  been asked many times  and thry say they release updates and features   going on  what people ask ... that tv got one systeme update    in  1 year and it was this fall  supposed to correct internet that keep disconnecting or not beinf able   connenct to servers to accept being bombarded with target ads   ...   ... and seriously theit update made the tv way slower and  the internet keep disconnecting non stop    by ethernet as welll as wifi   they said i needed a 15 megabit connection to stream  ....  and i have a 200 megabit.connection here ...   if only we could hack em and install custom. firmwares    but nop we cant

      Seeing this error when accessing the content store.
      Long story short, I'm able to watch netflix and various other streaming services but Disney+ went "weird" recently and would allow me to navigate to various shows but then always encounters a "problem".  I noticed Disney+ has a new app update on various Android devices I own so I figured it might need an update on my LG OLED 55E6V  too.  But the content store has been temporarily unavailable for 24 hours now.
      It's the first time I'm seeing this - anyone else? 
      I updated my email-based LG account and consented to some new terms and conditions in the hope it would make a difference but now I feel like I was mugged into that, all for nothing.  Meantime... no Disney+ and no way to check my LG WebOS apps are up to date (strongly suspect there might be a new Disney+ app).  The "Account Management" option on my TV results in a black screen and this just feels like things are unravelling.
      I have firmware 05.60.15 and no updates are available.

      TV model: 49 UH770T 
      I used 6000 hours. All four corners start to have struck pixels, this is very disappointing us after spending INR 1,00,000. I am sure this should have been tested products for such high value. How would I customer will recommend LG Smart TV for family and friends if the product manufacturing is not worth the money spent on?
      regards,

      Can someone inform me as to when (what generation) they removed the smart zoom feature from their TV's? I want to purchase a new OLED TV but I noticed their smart zoom feature was missing from their remote control. I have a 2016 LG TV that still has it and I use it all the time.

      MX player and jio cinema are commonly used Android apps which offers many free to watch movies. It would be great if that two added in the lg store. Hope it'll be added soon

      Hi people,
       
      Recently bought one 49LF6350 and one 43LF6350 and the two models have the same problem, whenever I try to open an application, informs me that I have to update (required update, you must update this app to launch it. the update may cause data to be stored deleted.), and when I try to update, it gives an error message (application has not Been instaled. try again). It happens to apps also store to at new install. what may be occurring?
       
      software version: 3:03:04
      WebOS TV version: 2.0.2-3928 (behive-badlands)
       
      thanks.
