The update apparently comes with more than just the run-of-the-mill changes. According to @SomeGadgetGuy on Twitter, with the update, the LG V50 ThinQ now supports a Desktop Mode.

@SomeGadgetGuy reveals that even though the UX 9.0’s Desktop Mode does not enjoy the refinement of Samsung DeX or Huawei Desktop Mode, it is more polished than the one developed by Google.

To setup up Desktop Mode on your LG V50 ThinQ running UX 9.0, you have to connect the device to an external monitor using a USB Type-C to HDMI adapter. Once the connection is established, a “screen sharing mode” prompt will appear. You can then choose to “tap to switch to desktop mode”.
