Google tv app appears to cause poor picture but the Sky tv app does not!

I have been experiencing frequent issues with the Sony Google tv app on my KD-55A1 oled.
I’ve posted elsewhere about frequent dimming picture quality issues but there seemed to be no response. So after exhaustive trials it appears to be connected to the Google app on the tv. Watching a Netflix episode of Afterlife via the tv app shows a marked dimming and brightening of the picture which overall seems duller and less vibrant. The same effects appear on the Disney + app, again the Google app. Most noticeable in Black Widow!
if I then play those same pieces via the Sky tv Netflix or Disney + app there is a significant difference in better picture quality (Brighter) and NO dimming issues. Sadly the Sky app does not allow for the improved Sound options that the Google app does😕
aside from not using the Google apps is there anything that might done to resolve this?
I have emailed Sony support but won’t hold my breath.
