App Development on StanbyME Model

The StanbyME model based on the webOS TV 6.0 platform allows users to rotate the TV screen and control the display by touch. As a developer, you should implement the following features in your app to make sure it works properly on the StanbyME model.

The StanbyME model has released in 2021 in Korea. This model will be released worldwide.

Before start developing a new app or modifying the existing app for the StanbyME model, you should keep in mind its differences from the conventional LG TV devices.

No Color Keys in Remote Controller Unit

The remote control of the StanbyME model does not have color keys, so we recommend that you design your app not to use color keys.  Although users can use the general TV remote controller through the menu settings or use the Touch Remote interface to input color keys, our recommendation is still not using color keys in your app.

Touch Remote Interface

For the StanbyME model, we provide the Touch Remote interface that enables users to control apps that do not support the touch event.
