LG has always been Google’s Android Wear partner ever since the program launched. LG was one of the first manufacturers to collaborate with Google. LG has previously launched its Android Wear smartwatch. Recently, LG has launched the webOS TV Platform. This is in direct competition to Google’s Chromecast and the Google TV Platform.
Google has been trying too hard to integrate its apps and services onto whatever Android can be loaded or installed on. Google is now requiring manufacturers to load more of its applications on their Android based devices. This is making many manufacturers to move away or look for other alternatives. LG release of its webOS TV Platform is being seen as a method to become independent of Google’s TV Platform.
LG’s webOS TV Platform is a web-based platform that will power LG’s Smart+ televisions. The webOS TV Platform is developer-friendly. The webOS TV Platform has powerful capabilities that developers can leverage to create feature-rich web applications, second-screen applications, and many more.
