Google Chrome app compatibility with Android TV?
1
I'm still pretty confused as to why Chrome browser isn't a default application or even an option to download for Android TV at this point in time. I have a new Sony Bravia TV with all the bells and whistles of Google, voice control, tons of Google Play Store apps, etc. But still there is no Chrome for surfing on my TV. I've hooked up a Bluetooth controller and I can play games from the game store with it. I can hook up a Bluetooth keyboard to type if I want to as well. Bluetooth mouse? I'm sure I could do that too. So with all the pieces already in place, it seems like a no-brainer next step. Is this in development? I really hope so. I'd like to take advantage of a full-screen Netflix Party session on my TV, which requires the Chrome browser, among other things. Thanks.

Hi T-Man,
Indeed. Not having Chrome Support is a bummer. Google considers it not to be Optimized for TV screen usage and hence no support. But I do feel that they can release an optimized version for TV platform.

Meanwhile you can try this work around.
  • Download 'Chrome' apk on your phone. Make sure to search 'Chrome for android TV' while looking for Apk.
  • Install an App called "Send Files to TV' on both your phone and TV.
  • Transfer the Apk using above app and Install.
  • Connect USB/Bluetooth mouse and start using Chrome.
Hope this Helps :)

As for just browsing on the Android TV.  I am a fan of the " Puffin TV Browser"  The Puffin TV Browser has a version that’s been specifically designed for Android TV boxesβ€”it’s not just a re-purposed mobile Android app.  https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.cloudmosa.puffinTV  However I don't think it will support the Netflix Party App/Feature/Extension.  The best thing would be to get people to start requesting the Party Feature for the Android TV app, from Netflix, and show them the demand is there.
