Technology is evolving at a break-neck speed. Fortunately, this dynamic growth improves the quality of our lives and our experiences when dealing with devices.

For instance, a few months ago, you always needed a hand-held remote to control the TV. If you are like me, who is always misplacing the remote or have kids who barely keep track of where the remote was, you must be having countless days searching for this device. Unfortunately, you need it to have a smooth experience when using the TV.

The good news?

Today that’s not the case. LG brands are at the forefront of improving the user experience by taking advantage of the fast-growing technology.

For instance, they have just released the latest version of the LG remote TV plus app, bringing the internet to a standstill. But what is an LG TV plus app?

However, the LG TV Plus is designed so that you can use it on any operating system. Thus, you can install it if you use an iPhone or an Android-powered phone. 

What is the use of the LG TV Plus app?

Basically, this app is used to control the LG TV.
