Apps written for a phone interface often do not translate well to a TV screen with limited remote interactions, so typically an app needs to be modified to support this alternative interface (similar to how some apps support Android tablets better than others). 
 
You can provide feedback to the app developers for the app you're interested in and ask them to add support for Android TV.

Unfortunately Chrome is not officially available in android TV due to compatibility and user experience issue. But you can sideload APK using the USB install.

Please note side loaded apps may harm your device if it not downloaded from the official web.

Thanks,

Look boy, Android TV is a special version of the Android system, and the developers have to adapt the apps to use them on Android TV, however, they don't, as it might not be the developers' target device, or they can't. keep 2 different versions at the same time. Chrome was not useful in the days of Google TV, so when Android TV came out, Google decided not to launch Chrome for televisions, and it has not changed its mind. It's annoying, but it's like you want to use Chrome on Wear OS, it's impossible (well, no, but you'll have glitches).

You can sideload apk. It may not work properly as most of them are made for mobile phones and are not compatible with Android tv. APK's can also harm your device security by installing other 3rd party applications etc. You should avoid installing Apk even if the app or app developer says that it is safe. You can install app on phone and than cast it on your device.
