Tizen is a Linux-based operating system for smart devices developed and maintained by Samsung.
It was originally conceived to be used in mobile devices as an alternative to Android, currently after the unsuccessful attempt to be used in smartphones Tizen is being used in smart watches and Smart TVs of the Samsung brand.
Although it is based on the free Linux operating system and belongs to the non-profit organization Tizen Association supported by many other technology companies such as Motorola, NEC, Panasonic and Vodafone, Tizen contains parts of Samsung's proprietary code and is in practice only installed on Samsung brand devices.
The applications for the webOS operating system are based on HTML5 which allows app developers not to have to learn a new programming language, this has the benefit of making applications easier and cheaper and therefore practically all platforms video on demand such as Netflix, Disney +, Amazon Prime Video, DAZN, Rakuten TV, HBO Max, etc. They can have their application in the Tizen ecosystem, however the applications must be approved by Samsung to be uploaded to the Smart Hub application store.
As advantages of the Tizen operating system, we can highlight the wide number of applications available, the speed of its interface, its security and the guarantee of being an operating system maintained and constantly updated by Samsung, which is currently the largest television manufacturer in the world.
