LG shows a heart for older TV generations: This is how you push the app for Amazon Music onto TVs from model year 2016.
Recently it was confirmed again that Apple AirPlay 2 and HomeKit should also reach the TVs of 2018. It looks even better for Amazon Music or the corresponding app. It should arrive on TV sets from model year 2016. Amazon Music then grants access to over 60 million pieces of music on the televisions.
According to LG, the latest firmware is required for this. Then the Amazon Music logo will also appear in the app selection for TVs with webOS. Which devices get the app? Now, according to LG, these are the OLEDs, NanoCell models and other Smart LCD TVs, which were released between 2016 and 2020. Europe is also supplied with the update.
If you have a reasonably up-to-date LG TV, you should look out for the app for Amazon Music. However, we would also like to point out that ideally a subscription to Amazon Prime should be available for use. If you want to exploit the full potential of the 60 million songs, you need a supplementary subscription to Amazon Music Unlimited.
LG and Amazon are promoting their cooperation
Of course, LG and Amazon are eagerly patting each other on the shoulder. There is a long debate about whether it makes so much sense to trigger music playback on the TV. We see mobile devices as a better choice. But it never hurts to have more options. At least it is gratifying that Amazon and LG have submitted the app later. Hopefully, LG will continue to supply its older OLED and NanoCell models with new firmware and new apps for a long time to come.
For example, we would currently like the VRR problems to be resolved, which we have already reported on. There should be something in the works, but more specific news is still missing.
