    Lightbulb Android Oreo 8.0 for 43PUS6401 - QM163E!

    Can Philips keep delivering these updates? I was really impressed with 7.1.2

    Although it lacked a few things other Android TV's started to get.

    Such as Google Assistant/Home integration. Which i believe would be a major win, especially with Philips Hue lights and content control on the TV.


    The ability to control the TV with Google home would be something id like to see at the moment when I ask "Ok Google Turn off/On my TV" it tells me that I need to contact the manufactuer to see if its supported. Its clearly supported just not utilised as WoWLAN works.

    Maybe also have an option to have the default Android look and feel in the menus. I feel like the inconsistency breaks the feel of the software.

    Would be good if we could get a vanilla Android version that we could preload ourselves.

    Hi,

    Google Assistant is planned for 2017/2018 TVs with TPM171E... I don't think, that 2016 TVs will get GA update...

    So what you are saying is im going to be left with a buggy version. That has a half baked chromecast support (that still has multiple bugs). You would think that they would atleast allow developers to crack open there kernal so that we can continue what Philips left us with if they cease to not update 2016 devices.

    Philips please allows us to get a full source to the android 7.12 and be able to build for our tvs once they go out of your support!
