LG TV Gallery Mode: Is it Worth Enabling

Gallery Mode is a wonderful feature on LG Smart TVs (2018 and above) that can transform the television screen into a modern piece of art. To use this feature, go to the Art Gallery app on LG TV and explore a wide collection of themes on abstract, art, nature, etc. Gallery Mode will optimize the picture to make it look better by adjusting the brightness on LG TV based on the surroundings.

  • 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?
