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.

      webOS updated, I think to 2023, on my C2 a couple of days ago. Since then the News option on the Sky News app no longer works, instead timing out. The Weather and Climate options still work, though.
      I have deleted and reloaded the Sky News app, but the problem remains.
      Does anybody have any suggestions of what I might try to get this working again, or is this something for LG, or Sky, to fix?

      We have two LG TV's that stopped connecting to our PLEX media server after the last update. TImes out saying "Checking connection speed to Raspberrypi" which the PLEX is on
      Upgraded the Mesh Routers before trying anything, still only the PLEX app doesn't work
      Our other TCL TV and Roku and TIVO still work with Plex, so this is only the LG TV's that can't connect anymore.
      Another annoying error after the last update is that any Streaming app (Amazon, Netflix, and DIsney) now fall out of the app and go back to HDMI port 1 if we pause for 30 seconds.  Which we have always done for a Bathroom break or getting drinks.

      Hi I recently updated the software to 5.30 version, and after that I noticed a weird problem with video streaming, in general issue with internet bandwidth. Usually my b/w is ~35 mbps so that is sufficient for 4k streaming on youtube or netflix. The issue is after running for 10-15 mins if I pause the video or go backward the network speed is thrashing badly. For example when I check internet connection on netflix it shows ~30-35 mbps, but whne that problem occurs and I check the speed again I see the speed is dropped to <1mbps. Same with youtube, it can't load 4k videos anymore as the speed is ~1mbps. I can realize the problem as the thumbnails load very slow with scrolling. This problem does not get away unless I restart the TV or disconnect from wifi AP and connect back. The router always works fine I mean when I observe the problem on tv I can run videos on mobile seamlessly and see a speed of ~40 mbps on the same router. The router is kept next to the TV so I don't think it is some issue with wifi distance etc. I don't know what to do. I tried resetting but it removed all my app but it was actually not a so called "factory reset". So software version remained same. To rule out hardware problem I want to revert to previous version of the software but apparently I can't downgrade the software. Is there any other approach to load some previous version firmware?
