Ignore the option of trying to download, basically the website is trying to read the browser identification string, failing and then offering you the nearest equivalent it has available.  The reason you are being told Chrome is not up to date is that the LG webOS browser is based on WebKit which is Apple's basis for its Safari browser and is used (or soon to be used, I'm looking at you Microsoft Edge) by pretty much every other major browser out there apart from Mozilla's Firefox.  Yes webOS is 'nix under the hood, but this does not mean that you can just install a Linux app on the system, it would have to be written and compiled especially for the platform.

How to Update Chrome which is embedded within the LG Web OS?

If you are visiting a website and getting this message it is because the site does not recognise the webOS browser and is miss-reporting it as being an out of date version of Chrome.  Sadly the only thing you can do is inform the owners of the site that it does not work with webOS and hope that they fix the issue.

I have an LG UK6500AUA. My WebOS version is 4.0.0-16022 (goldilocks-gayasam). I used the WebOS internet (*not the YouTube App) to log into my YouTube account. I wanted to comment in Live Chat. And I got this message:

"It looks like you are using an older version of your browser. Please update to use Live Chat."

What can I do ? ?  I'd like to able to comment in the live chat of YouTube...

Either call LG customer support see above number or send an email to chrome to see if they can push an update to LG... 

 

or just take a deep breath and breathe easily because, maybe, nothing's going to change...

POSSIBLE CHROME UPDATE.....

When I landed on my LG WebOS 4.0 Home Page this morning, there was a message near the top of the screen that said something to the effect of "You have an older version of Chrome, press here to update to the latest version".

After I pressed that, it didn't download, but instead gave me the task of selecting which "Chrome for Linux" Package to download.

Option 1: 64bit.deb fir debian/Ubuntu

Option 2: 64bit.rpm/openSUSE for Fedora/open SUSE

Option 3: "Other" Link

Then, at the bottom of the page it said: "Google Chrome will automatically add the Google repository to automatically keep up to date."

----------------------------------------------

So my question is, should I always ignore such messages, or, if I can update Goggle Chrome, as I was prompted, WHICH OPTION SHOULD I CHOOSE???

Thanks George, I was hoping you would be able to answer my question and clear this up. I will ignore the update messages that pop up on my Home Page.

      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.

      Quick question, what is the current software version on the hu810pw projector? Has there ever been any updates for this projector 
      Only asking because mine says it’s 03.00.37 out of the box and says there is no software updates 
      If this is the current version for this projector and it has been out for well over a year and never had any software/firmware updates, have I fallen victim to the LG never update any of their not popular products in there lifetime company policy? which kept me away from LG products for the pass 10years

      I have  a OLED55CXAUA TV, Apps weren't able to update I got the same error message. I had a problem with Hulu so I uninstalled it. After that I couldn't re-download Hulu app. I did a computer chat with LG techs several times. The last chat after having me do all the standard fixes , the tech accessed my computer remotely . After a long wait he said I needed to do factory reset. Thats what I did. well that made things much worse. Now because all the apps were older ,they all needed to be updated ,so now I could use any of my streaming apps. So now I have to stream with Amazon firestick ,TV apps are useless. It only gets worse. The LG tech said that's all he could do remotely ,I needed an onsite tech to come to my house to check it . But because it is 17 months old I would have to pay for repair. In addition to that I bought it at Costco . They give a 2nd year extension of factory warrantee , plus I have an additional 3 years of Allstate service contract. I called Costco to have them repair it . They said it's not covered because it's a software issue and they don't cover software issues . So I called LG tech and asked if they would have fixed it under warrantee if it was under 12 months old .  He said they definitely would have.  So I called Costco back and if they are extending factory warrantee why won't they cover it if LG would have. They gave me some double talk but still refuse to do anything. So I'm stuck with a smart TV that now is the same as any regular TV. Both corporations LG and Costco are at fault I'm stuck in the Middle. How can I fix this firmware problem?

      I want to be able to turn on my TV without it automatically launching a cable channel. ( or repeatedly asking me if I want to turn on the cable box).  Is there any way to "just' start with the home screen? Also when I've been watching something (app or cable) and go back to Home screen, it will go back to what I was watching if there is no input for a minute or so. grrrr. so annoying
