As davexnet said, there is no option or solution for updating or even changing your Web browser. I have looked at this very same thing several times, because in their total disregard and contempt for their paying customers LG have blocked anything that they can not monetarise or anything that might in any way actually enhance your use of their sub par products.

Ohhh ......and they have also started to not support certain web sites and pages that up until now have been available through the web browser, like Youtube, you now have to install the app and thats money in the bank for LG.

Do not waste your time and energy contacting LG about anything, they will just ignore you. My advise to you, get an Android TV box and use that to download any apps you want and any web brower you like and as soon as you get the chance, get rid of your LG TV and buy one that actually does what it is supposed to do.

Yes, freeing yourself from the "Smart" offerings in the TV will open up many things.  But I have a feeling that all of the TV manufacturers are similar, nothing to be gained by switching brands as far as I can see.  Anybody know if any of the other TV brands offer alternative browsers on their content stores? Perhaps Android based TV ?

There is a big difference between an Android TV and an LG TV. An Android TV has as standard about 16 Gigs of onboard memory and LG TV has about 500 megabytes of internal memory, so theres that.

Also an Android TV has access to thousands of apps direct from the Play Store that allow you to have a lot of choice and actually add value to the product that is supposed to be a "Smart TV" LG have literally a handfull of rubbish apps that nobody uses, their app store is insulting. LG have even stopped supporting the one Web Browser that they do allow you to use, so that some web sites wont even load though the Web Browser, forcing you to use the add heavy apps or forcing you to subscribe to the pay to view apps like Netflix.

I used to have an older Android TV and i never once had an error message telling me that "the TV needs to close down to save the memory" i get that every 40 minutes with my LG smart TV, allong with pages not loading because of not enough memory, extremely slow loading times and unresponsive commands amongst many other things. 

I would argue  that there is absolutely nothing to be gained from by keeping a LG TV and everything to be gained by either changing to an Android TV or even an Android TV box.

      HI, I purchased 43UF770T-TA 3 years ago in hope that LG will update the software, but I have not seen any proper update. I have 04.05.85 software version of webos 2. The youtube application is pathetic, no airplay support, no proper browser, also do not suupport keyboard input and need to click the onscreen keyboard letter by letter to enter anything. Please fulfill my wish and provide proper software update to 43UF770T-TA so that at least youtube and browser works properly. If airplay is also integrated then it will be super. Thanks.

      Hi. 
      My 55 UH7707 received an SW update to version  05.50.06.  Here are the issues I have encountered:
      1. The whole user interface became really slow. 
      2. Also, what is most annoying, application updates are not installed, for example, NETFLIX has been impossible to update, being stuck in vicious circle,asking me to update the app, and then not being able to complete the installation of the update. 
      3. Wired connection was disabled, ethernet module was not detecting a cable. I had to do a hard reset to enable the ethernet, and reacquire wired connection to the internet

      Hi people,
       
      Recently bought one 49LF6350 and one 43LF6350 and the two models have the same problem, whenever I try to open an application, informs me that I have to update (required update, you must update this app to launch it. the update may cause data to be stored deleted.), and when I try to update, it gives an error message (application has not Been instaled. try again). It happens to apps also store to at new install. what may be occurring?
       
      software version: 3:03:04
      WebOS TV version: 2.0.2-3928 (behive-badlands)
       
      thanks.

      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!

      My parrents have a LG 43UH661V TV (and no computer or smartphone) and because of Corona, they watch church services every Sunday at
      link hidden, please login to view After we accepted a software update to version 05.50.95 last weekend, this website no longer works. LG Netherlands cannot help us. They say LG headquarters is not interested in this kind of streaming websites (LG wants sites to develop an app for LG is what LG Netherlands said). Downgrading the software is also not possible since version 05. How are we going to solve this?
