How to Enable Gallery Mode on LG Smart TV

Gallery Mode is a home screen personalization feature on LG Smart TV that displays artwork and pictures stored on LG servers.

  • We have just purchased a 2022 LG Nanocell TV – model 65NANO756QA.

    When we saw this tv in the store (we actually bought the store display tv) it was showing a slide show that looked like the art gallery mode. However, we have now had the tv installed and there is no art gallery mode app pre-installed. I cannot find any information on whether this particular model of tv supports this app. I have tried searching for this app and nothing is coming up.

    Are you able to provide any suggestions?
