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

I wish I can upgrade my 49UH850 to webos 4+, but all hopes seemed lost since LG is not answering question on how to upgrade older models to newer webos OS

Would be nice to be able to get HBO MAX or at least cast from my phone to my 2017 UJ series. I bought a new 65” model that has everything and put my old 49er in my room. I don’t know how long the expected lifespan of each model is but LG should continue supporting models for longer than two-three years it seems.

No answer here. My Google search ked to many other not productive answers & now I'm here. I just to vent with you. I want Paramount + on my TV!!! Apparently I need webOS 4.0 or higher. My TV has 3.9 and when I try to "update software," it tells me "no update available." Watching TV on my phone is not cool 🤨

Lg annonced it. Long ago but it never came as always they dont do such major  os  update.  So tv. On  lg tvos 3.0   wont reach 4.0. .. 4 eont reach 5. Etc 

Now there wre  ta couple options available not all of em are good thought 

  First  option which is probably the best solution and the one i personally use is to. Connect hdmi media streaming  device but. Here the are.    From best to worst   well i mean   based on my own opinion lol

 

Google tv with Chromecast  bringing android tv os  with all  the google apps. Appstore  even the. Beta versions of unreleased android version are available on thoses so they ll last for a while  before .they change it  also bring the google assistant to the tv.  And   they are if i m right arounf 30 or 35  for the full hd 1080p  hdmi dongle   amd 45 $ the. 4k version  and support. Airplay and chromecasting. .

fire tv cube which have every app i could need. Air play chromecasy miracast etc which cost about 50$

The fire stick is ok but dont take a lot  to cradh as it s underpowred  around 20$

 I personally wss using fire  tv cube and the google tv with chromecast that came later i love both buy all my stuff in here is google so ... 

 

SECOND OPTION

Lg TV have miracast which is pc windows os  version of chromecast software .. roku can  use it any windowss devices can strem direct too .. it s not chromecast but works the same way   

For this option you need a app made by LG but removed from the app store this spring but still works .. and  it is still avilable it you had the hap before ..you can download it on app store it. Is called alava "LG TV PLUS" uou can case your phone. Or filed  or websites 

You can easy find tve apk on  android alternatives places to download apk file  i persony use  pure apk and bever had an issue but pick the apk. Store you feel safe using 

 You might be able to use airplay  on apple devices to stream  trought the apple tv  on app store but  not all tv work with airplay 

THIRD OPTION  

If you have amazon prime tv membership paramount+ is part of   paid subscription of  amazon  prime

 

FOURTH OPTION   (not recommanded unless you know what you do and risky to brick) webos. 3.5 to 3.9 can. Be   jailbreaking   because  a vulnerablity   found allow installing jailbreak  with home brew and another app store but made by lg but i dont recommand for security reason.and the  way.  To get.it 

BONUS 

LAST RESORT OPTION 

 Change the tv. ..lol not the best. Option as it aint cheapest and   not environment friendliest

P.s. you can cast to  xbox systems or playstation systems too 

 

Hope it help 

Matt

It is really a pain. Always hanging up on while playing youtube videos and the only way to reset memory usage is to turn of and on the TV. Disney app is not available too. Even casting is not supported.

  Google tv with chromecast. Hdmi dongle is 35  for the full hd or 45$. The 4k  both on the latest android tv os software. All apps works .. made by google  and brings   the google assistant.   And solve all issue

Greetings, friends! I have a LG smart TV 32LF632V, model from 2016, which when updating the software stays on Webos 2 version. I need Webos 3 version to be able to install one domestic application. Now I can download the installation to the USB, put it in the TV and install it that way (there are instructions on the internet), but I'm afraid that I will create a problem (that I won't be able to install or restore it afterwards) because this version of the TV is not intended for more advanced users versions since Webos 2.

Has anyone tried something similar or knows if it is possible or not?

THANK YOU!

      I would like to update the OS on a relatively old TV (manufactured in 2015). So there are questions: how to find your version, where to download a new one and check its compatibility with my TV?

      Hey, 
      My question is, can I install webos4.0 or higher on my lg 49uj701v, for example via a USB stick with an .apk ? I would like to download Paramount+.
      Thanks a lot

      On LG OLEDs. You go on and disable SIMPLINK. Fine. But everytime you turn on your HDMI device it enables itself back again. This happens because they have disables two key features that were present in previous OSs, as you can see clearly here
      link hidden, please login to view (they even put screencaps of the menus where you see the missing options in the 23) These functions are Auto Power Sync and Auto Device Detection.
      Man updates are supposed to add functionalities not the other way around. It's very annoying to turn on your TV and have your AVR turn on without you wanting to.

      Anyone found a solution for this problem?

      Samsung has made fridges with touchscreens before. LG has made fridges with doors that turn transparent to show you the inside. This year at CES 2018, those two ideas are finally merging into one with LG’s new InstaView ThinQ smart refrigerator, which features a 29-inch touchscreen that becomes transparent if users knock on it twice.
      LG actually tried this two years ago, with a version called the Smart InstaView Door-in-Door that ran a full version of Windows 10, but it’s not clear that the company ever shipped the Windows version.
      This version uses the touchscreen to manage your food using LG’s webOS software and Amazon’s Alexa, which will let you tag food with virtual stickers and expiration dates and get automatic reminders when things are running low or about to go bad. There’s also a wide-angle panoramic camera on the inside of the fridge that will let you remotely view your fridge while you’re out and about to check and see if you’re actually out of milk or not.

      Unfortunately, the only image that LG has shared showing the fridge is a low-resolution shot on its YouTube page banner, but it seems that you’ll be able to still use the screen while it’s translucent, allowing you to tag food directly in a vaguely augmented reality-esque move.
      LG is also touting how all of its ThinQ kitchen gadgets can talk to each other to make kitchen tasks easier. So your ThinQ fridge can talk to your EasyClean oven, which will help you cook food through step-by-step instructions from the recipe app from your fridge. Then, your EasyClean oven can notify your QuadWash dishwasher about the kind of meal you cooked, so it can more efficiently select a wash cycle for that dish. Of course, all this requires spending thousands of dollars replacing every appliance in your kitchen (and if this all works as well as LG claims it does), but it’s still an intriguing vision of a Jetsons-like future utopia.
      No price or release date for the InstaView ThinQ refrigerator or any of LG’s other new appliances have yet been announced.
