This is a frustratingly bad UI, especially knowing what is possible. Why is my android TV less capable than my android tablet? I know it isn't scaling because the tools already to exist to scale the software over a huge range of screen shapes and sizes.
This launcher exists to sell you more content. You have to fight through ads to get to your apps you want to run every time you power on the TV. There is no way to customize this either. We need Arrow Launcher for TV!
I'm using it on my Sony TV. Could not deaktivate the sugguested Apps or put it to the bottom. Also there are Apps put forward which I have already installed. So everytime I need to scroll though these Apps before I get to "my" Apps. Quite annoying. Not sure if it is a android TV or general google or sony tv bug, but since the last few updates after watching a twitch stream for a while I could not play any video in any app anymore. (twitch app deinstall also does not help) Only TV reboot fixes the problem.
Does the EU antitrust allow this crap? The EU should give a 2 bln Euro fine to Google for this not even hidden attempt to sell all possible crap from Google through the television. Disabling the apps they keep appearing. I installed Spotify and it gets lost in the list of suggested junk! And there isn't even the option to change it with another launcher!!! Totally disappointed.
nice design but limited freedom and not custom, android is well known for that so i was expecting more from android tv. You can do more we all know it ...
It just sucks. My side loaded apps do not show up. It is a launcher for you to buy movies and games from Google. All the Recommended games and movies are what Google is pushing you to purchase. Poor,
