Users familiar with webOS will immediately notice the attractively updated home screen redesigned for enhanced usability and to meet the needs of viewers’ changing content consumption habits. The New Home screen provides faster access to the most frequently used apps and streamlines content discovery with recommendations based on the user’s preferences and viewing history. All displayed full-screen to show preferred content and related information at one glance, the New Home acts as a central hub for settings and the greater webOS ecosystem.

Beyond the new premium design, Magic Remote offers simpler controls when using voice recognition with LG’s multi-AI offerings of LG ThinQ, Amazon Alexa, or Google Assistant. Simple to navigate, slick, easy to hold and use, the new Magic Remote offers more user-friendly features including faster connections between the TV and other devices and hotkeys for accessing popular content providers such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Disney+. Magic Tap, a one-touch NFC function on the Magic Remote, provides instant access to a host of exciting viewing possibilities. By simply touching an NFC-enabled smartphone to the remote, viewers can share content from their phones to the TV or vice versa.

Leveraging the latest in AI technology, TV voice controls, and Magic Remote, all viewers have to do to get the info they need is to speak up. Magic Explorer, an enhanced version of LG’s Magic Link, delivers informative content related to what’s showing on-screen so viewers can learn more about the actors, locations, and other items of interest in the movies and shows they’re watching. The content-dependent feature also delivers the easiest and friendliest shopping experience for products appearing across select broadcast channels and LG TV services including Live TV, Gallery, Settings, and TV Guide by changing the color of the cursor whenever Magic Explorer has information to share.

LG’s newest TVs featuring webOS 6.0 will be on display in LG’s virtual exhibition booth during CES 2021 starting January 11.
