Installing apps

You can install apps to the TV, just like you do with smartphones and tablets.


  • You can only install apps that are compatible with TVs. They may differ from apps for smartphones/tablets.
  • An Internet connection and Google Account are required to install apps.


  • If you do not have a Google Account or want to create a shared account, create a new account by accessing the following website.
    The website above may vary depending on your region/country. It is also subject to change without notice. For details, refer to the Google homepage.
  • We recommend that you create a Google Account on a computer or mobile device.
  1. Press the HOME/button, and from [Search] on the Home screen, say something like “Search for <app name> apps” to search for apps you want to install. Alternatively, select the input field and use the on-screen keyboard.
  2. Select an app from the search results and install it.


  • If the app search does not produce the desired results, say “Google Play Store”, and try searching for the app on the Google Play Store screen.
  • You can also select a category from the Apps tab in the Home Menu and select a desired app.

After downloading, the app is automatically installed and added. You can select [Open] to launch the app.


  • To start an installed app later, select the Apps tab in the Home Menu, and select [See all] at the right edge of the app area. Select the installed app to start it.
