Google Movies App update expected?


Chris Tedesco

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 (

link hidden, please login to view

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.

      Opening the web browser app, and going to photos.google.com shows a screen with a "go to google photos" button, but nothing works, the button does not respond and the only solution is to shutdown the whole tv, commander buttons do nothing.  64uq800006lb with latest firmware.

      Below are the details of my model and OS information.  With this version, there is no support for Sony LIV and voot app. It will be beneficial if such apps are also provided.

      On an LG CX 55, two minutes into episode 4 -- "The Tomb" -- of the series Moon Knight on Disney+ there is a scene with statuettes in niches each lit by an oil lamp. As the flames flicker, dark blotches jump around some of the niche walls.
      These are certainly unintended artifacts.
      Can someone confirm wether this is a CX (only) issue?

      MX player and jio cinema are commonly used Android apps which offers many free to watch movies. It would be great if that two added in the lg store. Hope it'll be added soon

      Hello,
      We are a company developing streaming apps for our customers. As-to enhance developer / tester / any other teams experience into LG universe, and be able to quickly test any environments we have (dev / staging / production), we'd like to be able to install apps that aren't removed after Developer Mode expires, or aren't visible/listed to the public store.
      We looked upon the idea to extend Developer Mode session with a Crontab with specific accounts for each TV, but some TVs are stopping the Developer Mode when being powered down, so it doesn't seem the most industrialised idea.
      Let me know what we can do to answer that issue !
      Thanks !
