Most gamers have upgraded to the latest Xbox Series X/S or the PS5 this year. I know this because I’m a gamer myself and I like to stay up to date when it comes to my gaming gadgets. If you’ve done the upgrade of the gaming consoles, it’s time for you to do the same with your gaming TV. The right type of TV should offer a great experience when playing games and only gaming TVs can offer the right specs because they are specifically designed for that. They focus on you getting the best 4k picture, they come with HDMI 2.1 ports so your console can deliver that excellent 4K/120Hz gaming.
Luckily for you, LG’S new TVs just got even better for gaming. New features have been added to the latest LG TVs, they now offer two new streaming services and allow updates to the Game Shelf UI. The updates run webOS 6.0 and webOS 2022, and also present a “Game Shelf” feature to gather streaming apps and also give direct access to some GeForce Now games.
This is great news for gamers as we are always looking for something more exciting. LG, however, isn’t stopping here. According to an inside source, it will soon introduce new streaming services for gaming. But these will not be the Amazon Luna or the Xbox cloud streaming, as these are specifically offered by Samsung Gaming TVs. The new gaming services LG promises to provide will not compete against the likes of Xbox, Google, and NVIDIA when it comes to game streaming platforms, but it is awesome to see LG including them in its platform for different gaming options.
