What is the point of updating WebOS ??/


Question

I have

LG webOS TV UF950T,

software version 04.06.00

1.)  WebOS is getting updates but new  apps are not showing up in LG  Content store.  When I visit 

link hidden, please login to view
through my Tv browser there are many new Apps which are not in LG content store.         When i try to install , it says  not compatible with your Tv.

2) When i try to play a video some times it says video format not supported and some times audio format not supported like with opus & ogg.

My question is to Manufacturers/ WebOs designers if this is the case what is the point in updating TV, when there are no apps or support for new video or audio formats ????

In this case its like if i want new apps, I have to buy a new TV, updates are not helping in improving TV in any ways, no longer a Smart TV

lol :)

      Hello everyone,
      I just got the 50UM7500BSP TV, so i know that the webOS 3.0 and 3.5 has the function of Multi-view, where you can see two entrys of video at the same time spliting the screen.
      So my answer is the webOS 4.5 has that function? because i cant do it on my TV (well know is up to date at webOS 4.7). I ask to the LG support and they told me that yes it has it, but i cant find it, i dont know if its a app now or what.
      Please help me, i need this function.

      We recently purchased an LG Oled TV:  OLED55B6P

      We tried to access our photo library in Google Photos using the LG's web browser. We initially got access but after a few minutes we were kicked out and a message advised that we had to "Update the Browser" and links to the major browsers appeared. When we selected any of the browsers and attempted to upload a browser update we were informed by another message the this tv "Does not support downloads".  We can no longer open Google Photos.   Other sites seem to be accessible through the browser - the only one we can't access it seems - is Google Photos.
      Questions:
      1.  How do we update the LG's browser so that we can access Google Photos?
      2.  Is there any other way to access Google Photos?
      Our computer is an iMac and we have iPads and iPhones.

      Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Thanks!

      I have a LG TV model: 47LB652V-ZA, webOS version 1.4.0-2523 (afro-ashley). Why isn't Spotify supported for this TV if its from 2014 and it says that devices from 2013 and onwards will be supported

      I just signed up with Amazon ES to try out their video services (VOD), according to their site, some videos have several spoken languages and subtitles, I'm trying to setup Spanish language with Spanish subtitle, so in the setting of my Prime Video, I put spoken language 1 Spanish, 2 English, did the same with my TV set (LG 49UK6200PLA), when I play the video, it plays in English instead of Spanish, is this normal? When displaying the summary of the video, the language shows the video has Spanish, and should be selected when playing video, but my remote does not have a button to choose other languages (I remember in an old TV there was a button on the remote to change spoken language if provided by the video). Are different spoken languages available in Amazon Spain? Sorry for this long post.

      LG's webOS 6.0 smart TVs have a new UI, NFC-equipped remote
      The new smart TV software from LG also has more voice commands for use with Alexa or Google Assistant

      Seven years after introducing webOS as the platform for its Smart TV lineup, LG is introducing version 6.0 with a new look and feel for its 2021 4K and 8K TVs. The old blade lineup of apps is gone, with a more modern tile-based layout. LG Home Entertainment president Park Hyoung-sei calls this “the most significant update since we first introduced webOS in 2014.”

      An upgraded version of its ThinQ AI has more voice command control than ever whether you’re using Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa. For traditional control, this year’s edition of its Magic Remote is a bit more standard than some of the previous versions, but also includes NFC for the first time, which allows users to share content from phone to TV (and back) simply by tapping it.
      The new software includes Magic Explorer, which can pull up related content about actors, locations and items of interest for “select broadcast channels, while Next Picks analyzes viewing preferences to suggest things you might like. There’s no word on opt-in or opt-out preferences for these settings, but we’ll ask about them as the show progresses next week. It’s also unclear whether the updates will extend to older TVs in LG’s lineup, one way or another, the old HP software platform is still rolling on, powering new OLEDs and LCDs for another year.
