Google Movies App update expected?

Question

Trying to find out if the Google Movies App will be updated to support 4K anytime soon?   There was an article stating this will happen on WEBOS soon, but no news since. 

Update:  Well, it appears that the 4K on Google Movies App is now working.  I show 4K plus HDR, but didn't see an actual update from the APP.   Oh well, this is good news!

Hi Chris,

The reason you did not see an update is because there are two different ways to build an app for the webOS platform (http://webostv.developer.lge.com/discover/discover-webos-tv/

Packaged web apps: Packaged web apps reside on the TV. Packaged web apps have most of the resources they need to work successfully, available on the TV.

Hosted (Server Hosted) web apps: Hosted web apps reside on a remote web server. Users access them through an Internet browser. You can build hosted web apps for webOS TV using standard web technologies like HTML, CSS, and Javascript. These apps need connectivity to the web server to run successfully. As these apps reside on a remote web server, you can update them at any time without having to worry about pushing updates to the TV.

----

The important bit is the last sentence, this is why the look, feel and functionality of webOS apps often changes without any apparent upgrading.

Hi George thanks for the in depth response!  Appreciate it.  So i'm not crazy in thinking that the WebOS Google Play Movies app DOES now support  4K HDR?

I would have thought google would have made an announcement that this happened, big news!

    • Disney Plus on LG webOS TVs

      I was reading a few articles on the launch of Disney Plus but they did not list any of the tvs such as LG webos or samsung tv. I hope disney plus comes out in lg tvs.  Its supposed to launch November 12th in the US for $6.99 a month or $69.99 a year. They also said there will be a $12.99-per-month trio bundle of Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ that is coming. I'm already doing espn for $4.99, I may do the entire bundle to get hulu also, not sure, At the minimum, I am definitely going to get Disney plus
