    No Web Engine update for LG TV 2016/2017 (bought 2017) > it makes your web browser obsolete (video players etc) one year later! SHAMEFUL!!!
    Last FW update is Feb 2018 and since: nothing! certainly the last one for this model, I guess…
    So consider that "LG Smart TV" are "smart" only for one year, then they become useless because "previous LG TV will not get last webOS update" > means "no update of web engine" (Chromium 53 and follow).
    And obviously, it will be the same in 2020 for 2018/2019 models…..

    After clicking Settings, I go to click "Advanced/All Settings" at the bottom, and NOTHING happens. The icon just disappears. The TV is less than 2yrs old, & never had this issue. Im just tryna get into my Wifi settings to connect to a new network. But I have nothing. Also, tried to open YouTube, etc. But when I click them on the home screen, all it does is "exit" out of the home menu. Wtf?? This never happened before

    I updated the firmware and Youtube app on my good-old LG LN6150, just to get this pretty message: The YouTube app on this device is no longer available . Youtube has ended its support for this app and is no longer available on this device. You can continue to enjoy your favorite creators and videos in many other ways. The message should also contain: Until you'll update your old, filthy, disgusting, obsolete 5 years old devices too that is.
    I understand it's not entirely your fault in this greedy game, but damn, stop suggesting users to check that "Allow Automatic Updates" option!

    Hi, our Youtube app doesn't work anymore, I can type or choose a video but when I click the video it will stay Loading for hours, I thought it was just the Internet so I try reconnecting to the Internet but then nothing happened. Our Internet sure does work fine, it was only on Youtube. How do I fix this? I'd love to see a reply. Thankyou!

    I have an LG TV and the frigging widget for YouTube no longer works and there is no updates that ever fixed it. Something to do with Yahoo being bought by Google! So what?? Get a frigging update!
