Android TV take care! LG will license webOS to other manufacturers

LG continues to use webOS technology to run applications and manage voice assistants on its smart TVs, and has now confirmed that it will start licensing the operating system to other manufacturers. The intention will be to establish the ecosystem as a strong competitor to Android TV in the Smart TVs market.

For now it is not known which brands are interested in adopting webOS as a pre-defined system in their offerings, but there is talk of manufacturers such as Blaupunkt or RCA.

LG wants webOS to compete directly with Android TV

Despite being present in a greater number of devices with more attractive prices, Android TV is not the most popular operating system for televisions.

Samsung’s Tizen OS and LG’s webOS are the most popular, and this initiative could put Google’s system in a delicate position.

According to the President of LG Home Entertainment, the addition of more manufacturers to the webOS ecosystem aims to allow more users to enjoy an excellent interface and truly unique features.

Apparently those interested in running this operating system will be able to start with version 5.0. Park Hyoung-sei also says that webOS 6.0 will be the most significant update since the platform’s launch.

Success will depend on partners

For now it seems that there is no big name on the table to adopt webOS as an operating system pre-installed on your TVs.

Despite this, licenses may lead several brands that turn to Amazon’s Android TV or Fire TV to abandon these alternatives in favor of LG’s option.

Also important is LG’s partnership with Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, which have dedicated buttons on the controls of their Smart TVs.

These streaming services can now start to prioritize the brand in terms of updates, boosting the interest of more renowned manufacturers.
