Once selected you will get a "Software Update" notification message, when the update is available. Users can give their feedback or suggestions on the forum page within the app.

According to LG, Oreo update will optimize the software for smooth experience, faster boot times and minimize power and battery consumption. The update will also include native Oreo features like PiP mode (Picture in Picture), allowing users to watch videos and support wider variety of high-quality Bluetooth audio codecs such as LDAC codec.
