Google TV’s in-application far off that showed up recently starts working after a report on Android TV gadgets.
For quite a long time, we have been expecting the appearance of an in-application remote for Android TV gadgets, which formally showed up on Android yesterday by means of the Google TV application — or the Play Movies and TV application in regions where the rebrand hasn’t happened. Notwithstanding, in our testing, we couldn’t match it with any Android TV or Google TV gadgets.
As shared on Reddit by juzmafia, the arrangement stops via an update to the “Android TV Remote Service” application. Carrying out now by means of the Google Play Store — you need to introduce this application on your TV, not your telephone — the update brings the application from 4.7 to 5.0.
When introduced, the Google TV application’s new “TV Remote” alternative, available by means of Quick Settings and through the actual application — can perceive and combine with that specific Android TV gadget. The remote’s functions in general, including the Assistant button and console capacities, work similarly as you’d anticipate from an actual remote.
An intriguing symptom of refreshing the Android TV Remote Service is that the more seasoned “Android TV Remote Control” application that Google TV/Play Movies are supplanting is as of now not ready to match, in our testing. Taking into account that application hasn’t seen an update since 2017 and still conveys the visual feel of a 2014 Material Design application, this move is sincerely for something good.
One more odd eccentricity, noted in the Reddit post, is that the update to Gboard 11.0 or higher might be required, however it’s not satisfactory why now.
The simplest method to check in the event that you can introduce the update to the Android TV Remote Service is to open the Play Store on your TV — hold the Assistant button and say “Play Store” — and search for refreshes. In the event that an update isn’t yet accessible, you’ll need to check again later.
On the other hand, juzmafia shared the APK document to introduce the update physically, however sideloading applications on Android TV isn’t as clear of a cycle all things considered on telephones, so we don’t suggest it for the vast majority.
