New Android TV Update Revamps App Discovery Making 600 Apps Discoverable

9 July 2015

Milan: Android TV is a smart TV platform built by Google.  It is currently running the latest Android 5.0 operating system. Android TV offers an interactive television experience through a 10 ft. UI. It can be built into the TVs as well as the stand alone digital media players. The users can access Play Store to download applications including the streaming services like Hulu and Netflix. The interface is vertically divided into three main sections like the recommendations, media apps and games.

One main scuffle we have always had with Android TV is that the limited number of available apps. Fortunately with a new update, Android TV has augmented the breadth of accessible apps to its devices. It has made around 600 apps discoverable in the Play Store and along with that, a whole lot of options are available for you to access right from your sofa. The new Android TV update also offers a better organization for apps with new categories, sections and improved navigation which is somewhat conflicting to just the curated app lists which were available previously.

Browse through the entire catalogue

With the new update, you can do a lot more than just highlighting selection of compatible TV apps. You can browse through the entire catalogue of your Android TV as you wish. Also, you can have an offer of increased selection via Google's TV operating system. It’s also being said that the update is providing 20 curated collections of apps to make it easier to find new capabilities.

It seems like Google is adding more and more functionality to the operating system of its Android TV. The lines between the new and traditional outlets have been blurred by allowing the streaming applications to display a live stream in the place where the users search through broadcast channels.

Android TV user gains HBO, Fox, CBS and more

In the Google I/O developers conference held recently, Google made an announcement noting that the Android TV user would acquire HBO, Fox (Fox News, Fox Sports, FX now), CBS (CBS Sports, CBS News and CNET), UFC, Epix, Vudu, WWE, Twitch, Quello, Buzzfeed Video and Vimeo.

Google is also thinking to make some improvements on Android TV platform with the upcoming Android M. According to the company, the new version would allow Android TV developers to build the channels of continuous content and also allow users to format USB drives as internal storage.
