It is not understood why this functionality disappeared in WebOS 5 ...
I have an Oled CX and I don't have this option.
Why?

Hi @JonnyFlores

I would imagine that LG have dropped the feature, possibly they have had feedback that it is not a regularly used feature by a majority of users, or programmatically it has become more of a problem to keep rather than develop.

What was the last Web OS version to support this properly? And I would not mind going back in version. What can we do?

Plus one here for Multiview.   I call it Picture-in-Picture, it is all the same regardless of implementation differences. This is absolutely a useful feature on a giant monitor. The absence of the feature is the single biggest reason I have to dump my otherwise fine LG and to switch brands. Just a few highlights of how it is useful to me: I can participate in a live cycling game/workout and watch something else simultaneously. Or I can follow multiple events.   Or I can follow multiple sources covering the same event.      Reducing a monitor to only displaying ONE source at a time does not match how I use my electronic media.    Nobody keeps one app open on their phone or  computer. The same should be the case on the the TV monitor.

Totally agree.

      Hi,
      I have an LG OLED55B7A that has been rebooting randomly ever since I updated it to webOS 6.00.05 about 6 months ago.  I have noted there is a new webOS version 6.00.20 available.   Has anyone here had the same rebooting problem, and if so, did the latest webOS correct the issue?
      In general, my setup has the LG tv doing as little as possible - it is simply a display for my Roku box via my AVR, as the TV's interface and apps slowly became completely unusable about a year after purchase.  So, no ethernet, no WiFi, all services turned off, etc., and this helped with all of the performance issues, except the rebooting. 
       
      @ LG :  if you ever read this - you have done a TERRIBLE job of managing the software on these TVs.  webOS started off as a real alternative to all of the external set top boxes, but now, I will *never* *ever* buy another LG TV again, and I tell everyone I know to avoid them.  Worst product management in the consumer electronics industry in the past 10 years.
      Thanks fellow sufferers for any tips.
      Rob

      Hi Everyone,
       
      OK, so what does it take to have full Chromecast support in LG TVs (webOS)?
      a. Either builtin support.
      b. Via webOS app.
       
      The goal / use is simple as any other Chromecast device / TV: be able to say to "hey Google, play this video/music from service-X to LG-TV".
       
      Looking forward to good news and your thoughts.
       
      Thanks,

      In a unique initiative to address food insecurity and spread kindness across the United States, LG is working with global nonprofit Lasagna Love to positively impact communities by connecting neighbors through homemade lasagnas.
      LG USA enlisted the help of celebrity chefs and foodies to kick off the . They will be pitching in to bake lasagnas and posting their experience across their social media channels to inspire others to volunteer and keep the cooking challenge going.

      The campaign, which launched on Nov. 8 in time for the season of giving, has a goal of delivering 15,000 meals and connecting people in their communities throughout the USA. The social media campaign encourages others to join Lasagna Love’s mission of addressing the incredible rise in food insecurity among families and providing a simple act of kindness to those in need of a helping hand.

      LG believes in empowering home cooks and providing them with the innovative tools they need to make the most of their time in the kitchen. Through the partnership with Lasagna Love, LG will be sharing recipes and cooking tips for LG’s InstaView ranges to motivate consumers to get involved and give them all the tools they need to make and gift the perfect lasagna.

      “We’ve all been in a place of needing support, whether it’s a family struggling with food insecurity, a neighbor feeling isolated, or a friend who could use a little encouragement, we hope to inspire others this holiday season to spread Lasagna Love’s mission and connect people in their communities,” says Gail Conroy, senior director of marketing, LG Electronics USA.

      Lasagna Love’s mission is simple: feed families, spread kindness and strengthen communities. According to CEO and Founder Rhiannon Menn, “Lasagna Love was created through the simple act of one family making a home-cooked meal for another family in need. As we continue to scale our mission of spreading kindness, what’s most inspiring is how we’re making life a little better not only for the families receiving a meal, but also for the volunteers who are cooking.
      “We’re thrilled to be partnering with an innovative company like LG that truly understands the power in this one simple act of kindness and wants to help us reach even further,” she says.

      Hi there,
      I have a 32" 32LH604T-TB LG Tv and recently  I bought a Google Home Hub.  I am not sure if my Tv has Google Assistant built-in  but I want to control the TV via Google Home Hub. Unfortunately , I can't find any solutions to connect my Tv to Google Home Hub.
      So, is there a way to connect this two devices without any other equipment (like Chromecast )?

      Hello all I have the
      as anyone tried using their multi-view  feature. I've just discovered  that one side Amazon Firestick 4K and the other side just normal air broadcast. I have noticed that  with the  Amazon Firestick 4K  will not let you watch anything on the opposite side you have to uncheck  the firestick 4K then you can watch  something on the other side. But what's the point because that's the purpose I want to watch both at the same time my  firestick 4k and my over the air broadcasting channels. Does anyone have a solution to this problem greatly appreciate it thanks for your help in advance.
      Note: This Feature work for me with the old Amazon Fire TV stick that is not a 4k.
