T-Mobile LG G7 ThinQ now getting its Android Pie update



Looks like we can cross another device off the list of models waiting for their Android 9.0 Pie update.

T-Mobile has released Android Pie for its LG G7 ThinQ. The update is a big one, coming in at 1522.1MB, and it’s now rolling out over the air. TmoNews reader Chuck already received the update, and you can check for it yourself by going into your Settings app, selecting the “General” tab, and then tapping on Update Center > System Update > Check for Update.


Neither T-Mobile nor LG appear to have a changelog for the update quite yet. If the T-Mobile LG G7’s Android Pie update is anything like Verizon’s LG G7 Android Pie update, you can expect features like the option to use Home touch buttons with gestures like swiping up to switch to your overview or app drawer and swiping right to go to your most recent app, and a Part Slo-mo that’ll let you record a video with up to five scenes in slow motion.

That update also included an album bar that’ll let you quickly move photos or jump to other albums in the Gallery as well as a Dual App feature that enables you to run two of the same apps simultaneously with different accounts. For example, you can run two instances of Facebook, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, or Skype at the same time with different accounts.

If you’ve got a T-Mobile LG G7 ThinQ, be sure to let us know what you think of the Android Pie update when you get it installed!

Thanks, Chuck!
