At the very beginning of 2022, LG presented its updated operating system labeled webOS 22. As we recall, in 2021 this system was called webOS 6.0. Where did this jump in versions come from?
It turns out that the previous numeric version style has been replaced with a version name that indicates the year this operating system was developed and implemented in LG devices. Since it is 2022, the operating system is also number 22. Now let’s try to figure out how webOS 22 differs from webOS 6.0 OS.
webOS 22 and webOS 6.0 differences
All new 2022 models will support webOS 22. The user interface (UI) is similar to the 2021 interface, but with the new ability to configure up to six different user profiles based on browsing templates. That is, the system will take into account the user’s preferences and issue recommendations based on them.
In the second half of 2022, it is planned to launch the “Room-to-Room Share” function, which will be added to the OS to provide the ability to receive a signal from sources such as a cable box or satellite TV. It will be possible to transmit a signal from one TV to another, which is in any other room.
This way, viewers can tune in to their subscription or premium live TV service right away without the need for sharing, which often requires rent. This option will also allow you to change channels on both TVs.
LG also provides Ambient Mode. Only some TV models are equipped with this mode. Ambient Mode will display clocks, art, personal photos, and special animations. This function takes place when the TV screen is not being used to watch TV programs.
Updated LG Magic Remote
Also in 2022, all LG TVs, except for the entry-level TVs, will be equipped with an updated LG Magic Remote with built-in microphones for voice control platforms. This remote control will be able to voice control the program guide and webOS settings. Some Step-Up TVs will be equipped with far-field microphones for voice commands.
