Google messed up Smart-TV all over the world
Android TV is one of the most beloved operating systems among smart TV owners. All thanks to the pleasant interface, which is easy to navigate, good optimization and, of course, the rich installation options for third-party applications for free viewing of any content.
However, the other day, Google ruined the OS with its own hands, causing a flurry of criticism from users around the world. The IT giant has rolled out an update that changes the home screen, adding ads to it like in Google TV – this is the next generation of the operating system to which all smart TVs with Android TV will be transferred by 2022.
Everything would be fine, but advertising is broadcast in the format of video clips with sound right on the main screen. Clips cannot be skipped or mute – there is simply no mute function.
The videos advertise trending films and TV shows from Google partners (Netflix, Disney, etc.). In protest against the forced manner of their distribution, users began to fill up the branded Android TV application in the Play Market with negative reviews and low ratings. At the moment, the rating of the program has dropped to one star.
So far, the update is not massive. Most often, users of the Nvidia Shield set-top box and Sony TVs complain about it, but sooner or later the update will arrive on all devices with Android TV.
If you find a “gift” from Google on your TV, then try disabling automatic video playback by following the instructions from the Reddit forum:
1. In “Settings” open the item “Home Screen”.
2. Select Disable Video / Audio Preview.
Another way to get rid of ads is to install any third-party launcher on top of Android TV.Download and enjoy free, please recommend this website to your friends!
