Actually, I believe this is on LG's part and not Steam/Valve.  As far as I know, the only official from Valve appp support is for Android. I believe the version for Samsung TVs was technology licensed from Valve but the app was actually written by Samsung themselves. With this said, I suspect the only was it'll end up on WebOS is if LG licenses it from Valve and writes a WebOS version themselves.

Yup, I think it's true. Does LG's officials answer on this forum? We'd like to get some info.

Right, here we go again.

First.  Nope there are no LG officials on this site, it is a user-to-user forum.

Second.  Like every other operating system out there the manufacturer of said system does not produce every single app for said platform, see Microsoft Apple etc for examples. 

So why do all LG TV owners expect LG to produce every single app for the platform?

"Right, here we go again."

First. Why are you sounding so irritated about people giving a suggestion?
Second. With the rise in popularity of streamable games people hope and wish it was more accessible... hence the suggestion.

Because this is not the first time somebody suggested that LG should make an app because everybody want the 'hotstar app', the 'steam app', 'sony life' app, the 'hulu app' the 'hbo app', etc. etc. etc.

So George explains time and time again that:1: LG can not make the apps because only hotstar, steam, sony etc has the knowledge to make the apps and 2: this is not a LG forum, it is a lg USER forum.

And it is hot here with record breaking temperatures, so maybe not enough energy 🙂

Hi PeterV,

Thanks, I try to keep my (metaphorical) mouth shut when people repeatedly ask the same questions obviously I was having a bad day when I posted my comments. 

One of my rules for good forum etiquette:

Use the search facility

If the search facility flags up something that looks related to you query read thread(s)

If once you have read the thread(s) and your query is not answered then make a post

-------

Question, has anyone made LG aware of the petition at Change.org?

      I shifted to India from UAE with my 55SM9000PVA LG TV. Since it is a TV for the middle east, I can not change the region to India. Therefore I can not log in to my LG account and have apps from the LG content store of India. Ok, so I thought I should be able to use my account in UAE and use the apps which I used in UAE. Now these apps say the IP address is not from the region, so can't run those apps. So I am stuck up with an expensive smart TV without smartness. No service center, neither LG India have any answers to it. I hate using set top boxes please help.

      I got a 8 year Samsung low tier TV which doesn't even have Bluetooth but supports installing the Steam Link native app. On the other side, I also got a 2 year top tier LG TV which doesn't. This seems a joke, almost a disrespect towards the LG customers. The Stadia native app got added to the store and now it's closing. You should have added Steam Link, Xbox Game Pass or even Moonlight.
      This is more a shame call than a wish...
