Apple Music App for LG Smart TVs Now Available

The Apple Music app for LG smart TVs is today rolling out to users, with LG now promoting the app on social media.

apple music lg tv
The Apple Music app for LG smart TVs allows subscribers to stream over 90 million songs, as well as playlists, radio stations, and music videos, with no need for any external hardware such as an Apple TV. The app supports a range of core ‌Apple Music‌ features, such as synced realtime lyrics.

The user interface appears to be very visually similar to the ‌Apple Music‌ app for tvOS. The ‌Apple Music‌ app is now gradually rolling out to LG users, with a large number of posts emerging on Twitter showing the new app in action.

It is as yet unclear which exact LG TV models support the app, but it is likely that more recent model years will be supported. Users can find out if they have a supported TV by simply searching for "‌Apple Music‌" in the LG content store.

Love it, but it’s missing Dolby Atmos, Lossless and HDR support. Hopefully soon…

I love my LG OLED TV but what about "burn-in" problems because of the static logo and layout of the app ?
I just used the app on my C9 and found that the screen sleeps after a while, just as if it were a paused video. (You can wake it up, of course). So that may help avoid burn in.

With the regular LG media player app, a screen saver cuts in after a few minutes of listening to music.

Or, you can always turn the screen off while you’re listening to music - it’s just a pity that the “screen off” option is in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying “beware of the leopard”. (Actually, Settings - OLED care - Device self-care - Energy Saving - Screen Off, but near enough...)

Better solution would be to get a sound bar/AV amp with Airplay and cut the TV (and it’s not very good speakers) out of the loop... my sound system is a bit pre-airplay, though :)
You can add "Screen Off" to the quick settings menu or whatever it's called, if you use it often. (LG CX, may differ on other models.)

Disappointed Apple and Tesla hasn't added it. I understand Tesla not wanting to add CarPlay, but I thought Apple Music and Apple TV+ would be a slam dunk.
I watched Apple TV+ on my Tesla:
1 - Go to the YouTube app in the Theater menu
2 - Search for Apple TV plus
3 - Click on the Apple TV plus channel
4 - On the right lower corner of the main banner you will see "Watch Apple TV" --> click on that
5 - Log in and watch full screen!

You're Welcome! :)
