WebOS 6.0 update: the design has been completely renewed without forgetting the aesthetics of LG that characterizes the interface.
LG smart TVs bring this year that begins a novelty: the update of their operating system. If you are going to buy a TV from the firm, know that it will come with WebOS 6.0, the sixth version of the operating system, very interesting, certainly, but not entirely expected, because LG could still have stretched the previous one a little more. In any case, we are going to tell you everything we know.
This is perhaps one of the most important WebOS updates, as the design has been completely renewed, as stated by the president of LG HE Company; yes, it continues to maintain the aesthetics of LG that characterizes the interface.
The bottom bar for quick access to both apps and functions disappears. This gives way to the main interface where you can see all the installed applications on the full screen. This is called “New House”. and in it, we can also find featured content, promoted content, and informational widgets.
As objectives of this redesign, we have that the discovery of recommended content is more agile and the access to the apps, faster.
By the way, we also discovered a new remote control in which we now have quick access buttons to the Amazon, Disney, and Netflix platforms. Besides, you will have easy access to the LG Channels and two assistants, Google Assistant and Alexa.
We will see these novelties in no time at CES2021, an event in which the firm will show the models it has ready to launch this new year. The update will be released natively on the upcoming OLED and LCD models. We do not know if we can also update previous models, although, I believe that this option will be given overtime when the stability of the update is seen.
