Users will be able to choose if they want to install the LG’s webOS instead of Android TV because the company decided to make a move to be able to compete with Google.
Although it is true that Android TV is the operating system that is usually imposed on smart TVs and that many have it installed by default, some manufacturers such as Samsung or LG have their own versions that are also very powerful. So far these brands had limited them to their own TVs, but LG is going to take a step forward.
LG’s webOS is coming to more TVs
LG has been working incessantly in recent times on webOS TV to create a system that is compatible with the largest possible number of applications.
But LG wants to go further and it will make webOS make compatible with TVs from other brands. The company wants to compete with Android TV, but also with Tizen, Roku or Fire TV.
Can LG compete with Android TV?
The company has reached agreements with more than 20 brands to implement webOS as the default operating system on some TVs. Brands like RCA, Konka or Ayonz are on the list as far as we know.
This way all new users of this operating system will find the applications they use the most on TV. We will see if this move by LG makes a difference. This is a long-distance race and we are sure many companies don’t like this situation already.
