This is first time LG also showed off some clever connectivity with smartphones and tablets.

How can you that?

Similar to Chromecast, WebOS will let users choose a Netflix or YouTube video from their phones or tablets, and then send the video to the television. 

LG is also working with other developers on more interesting screen-beaming applications. For instance, fitness company Neura created a big-screen version of its ACTV app, and WebOS users can launch it by pressing a button in ACTV’s smartphone app.

Image sharing site Imgur is also adding a button to its app, letting users browse photos on a smartphone and view them on the television. 

Colin Zhao, director of product management at LG’s Silicon Valley Lab said LG is using DIAL–the same prototocol that underpins Chromecast–along with DLNA and other protocols.
