How to Delete App on LG Smart TVs

If you own an LG Smart TV, then you may be wondering if it is possible to delete an app. The good news is, it is. As long as you have an internet connection, you can uninstall unused apps from your LG Smart TV and get a bit more space.

Depending on the model of your LG Smart TV, you can either use the remote control or the LG Content Store to do this. While it is possible to add and delete applications on your TV, there are a few things you should keep in mind. There is not much RAM on a LG Smart TV, so your system may struggle with the addition of many apps. Having too many apps can also cause your device to run slow. That is why it is important to remove any apps you don’t really need or use.

If you are having trouble downloading a particular application, there are a few tricks you can use to help you get it done. First, it may be worthwhile to reboot your TV. This is a step that will wipe out any cache files that your Smart TV may have.

Another trick is to download a newer version of the app, if you haven’t done so already. Alternatively, you can move an app to another spot on the home screen or move a shortcut from one app to another.

The LG TV’s webOS has a dedicated app store, which allows users to download and manage applications. Those who own a LG TV with WebOS can access the content store via the remote control or the LG Content Store tab on the Home screen.

It’s also possible to delete an app manually. LG’s Intelligent Edit feature can be useful if you want to reorganize your applications in a smart way. To do this, you simply need to navigate to the right hand side of the screen. Once there, you can select your application using the Center button. When it is in the right spot, you’ll see a small sad skull face.

Lastly, you can delete an app from the LG Content Store, if you’re feeling particularly lucky. However, this isn’t the best option, because you can’t customize the order that apps are installed in.

If you are unable to locate the appropriate app, then the LG TV’s Home Dashboard is your best bet. Here you can find a list of all the applications you have installed on your TV. You can also download new applications from the content store. In the Content Store, you can find over 200 applications, games and other programs. Some of these can be downloaded for free, but if you have a subscription, you can also purchase apps for a small fee.

Unlike traditional television sets, Smart TVs are packed with media options. These include voice assistants and Bluetooth connectivity. Additionally, they provide instant access to streaming apps and content. Depending on the model of your Smart TV, you can download games, apps and more.
