Are you wondering how to test your Android TV? If so, you’re in the right place! In this tutorial, we’ll guide you through the steps needed to test your Android TV.

Step 1: Check Your Internet Connection

Before testing your Android TV, make sure that your internet connection is working fine. You can do this by opening any website on your smartphone or computer. If the website loads correctly, then your internet connection is working fine.

Step 2: Check Your HDMI Connection

Check the HDMI port on both sides (TV and device) to ensure they are properly connected. Make sure that the HDMI cable is inserted properly and securely.

Step 3: Check Your Remote Control

Test whether your remote control is working or not. You can do this by pressing any button on the remote control and checking if it’s responding on screen.

If the remote control doesn’t work:

  • Replace batteries of the remote control.
  • Make sure there are no obstructions between the remote and TV.

  1. Navigate to your app list using the remote control.
  2. Select an app from the list.
  3. Wait for it to launch.

If you encounter any issues while launching an app, try restarting your device or clearing the cache of that particular app.

If an app crashes:

  • Clear its cache and data from settings > apps > manage apps.
  • Update the app to its latest version.
  • If nothing else works, uninstall and reinstall the app.
