Google has announced a new feature on android that turns any android phone into a fully functional TV remote. The company is Rolling out this feature later this year and will work instantly for the more than 80 million Android TV OS devices, including Google TV.
How to use your android smartphone as a TV remote
I believe TV remote is definitely not the right tool used to control your android TV. It really hard to type on a T.V remote. So to make things easier Google is rolling out a new update to its android Smartphones ( mostly devices running on the latest versions ) that lets you control your android TV with your smartphone.
The new built-in feature will convert your smartphone into a fully functional T.V Remote that has a touchpad, volume buttons, and keyboard to search and type passwords easily.
To use this feature right now, you can install the Android TV remote control app from Google Play Store and get started.
- Connect your phone and Android TV to the same Wi-Fi network.
- On your phone, open the Android TV Remote Control app Android TV Remote.
- Tap the name of your Android TV.
- And then pair it with your android T.V and use it as a T.V remote.
This app works on almost any android device like OnePlus, Samsung, Asus, Realme, Redmi, and more.
