The Google TV application on Android (already Play Movies and TV) is getting another control include that will allow you to control your Android TV. XDA’s Mishaal Rahman, has detected the component in the most recent Google TV release (v4.25) and, while it isn’t live yet.
The upcoming remote control interface in the Google TV application is very negligible. It includes an enormous square D-pad with a round button in the middle and arrows on four sides that will assist you with navigate the Android TV UI on your connected smart TV.
To control a TV, you’ll first have to match the TV to the application by choosing it from a list of accessible TVs. This will start a matching cycle, wherein you’ll need to enter a 4-digit PIN code appeared on your TV in the application. Whenever that is done, you ought to have the option to utilize the remote control highlight to control your Android TV.
Mishaal tried the component several gadgets, and it as of now doesn’t appear to work with NVIDIA’s SHIELD TVs. It’s significant that this new controller highlight in the Google TV application will probably supplant the Android TV Remote Control application, which hasn’t been updated in years.
Accordingly, we suspect that it might get extra abilities, similar to voice input uphold, a touchpad, and keyboard uphold, before it turns out to clients. In any case, right now, we haven’t seen any proof in the application to help this case.
As of now, Google hasn’t shared any authority data with respect to the component. We will update this post when the remote control highlight begins turning out to clients with a future Google TV update.
