About this app

Adaptive background lighting Ambient light, without exaggeration, an amazing technology. With its adaptive illumination, eyes become less tired when you watch TV in the dark. Also the presence effect enhances, the image viewing area extends, etc. Ambient light is applicable not only to video and photo content, but also to games. The implementation of such a feature on the Android TV set-top box or Android TV based on Android OS above 5.1 (Lollipop) is now possible using the Ambient light Application for Android program.

!!! It is important to know !!!
The picture from the TV tuner is not processed at the Android OS level, the backlight with regular tv channels will not work. The backlight works only in Android OS applications that do not use protected content. 4K performance depends only on the capabilities of the equipment. Unfortunately, programs such as YouTube and Netflix use protected content, the backlight in such programs will not work. This may not work properly on the latest Android 9 Xiaomi firmwares.

Ambient light Application for Android is one of the few programs for Android based devices that allows you to implement Ambient light backlighting directly on your smart TV with no need of PC. There are three operating modes, that are:

SINGLE COLOR MODE – his mode allows you to include all the backlighting with one color selected in the program settings. This mode suits well as a night room lighting, surprisingly changing the familiar interior.

COLOR EFFECT MODE – This is the mode for displaying color effects. Dynamic backlighting can change colors, depending on which preset effect you have selected in the settings.

SCREEN CAPTURE MODE – This is probably the most in-demand mode of the backlight, which allows you to change its colors depending on what content is currently displayed on the screen.

Works well for me with my NVIDIA Shield. Of course, it does not work with copy-protected content like Netflix or Amazon Video, but it works fine with Plex, YouTube, etc. My only wish is that you could set a transition/smoothing time for the LEDs responsiveness, because sometimes they will flicker based on what's on the screen. It seems like a bug with the screen capture, since changing the capture settings (like frame rate or capture quality) will affect when/where it flickers but it won't get rid of it completely. That's the reason for the -1 star, otherwise the app is perfect for me. I don't think it is an issue with my setup, because if I do "color effect mode", it will never flicker. It only seems to flicker when it's screen capturing a mostly white/grey screen. It will also flicker when there's fast panning on the screen, but that's to be expected (and why I would want a smoothing setting). I think the flickering bug on a mostly white screen is a separate issue. Thanks

Works well, but unfortunately any streaming apps like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, AMC, HBOMAX, YouTube, Crackle, Pluto, Tubi and more the screen capture doesn't work so the lights won't work in Screen Capture mode. I am using it on Chromecast with Google TV with a USB-C hub. It works great on games and almost all other apps, including the UI. It does work with Kodi 19, but you can't watch Hulu, Prime, Netflix etc.

It did have 5 stars now 3 in hopes it works as it prior. Had this for a couple years with my led lights and loved it. Not used it in about a year because I had moved. Set up on my shield today and now keeps crashing. Locks up my shield until I unplug the usb. I have it set up correctly since I used it for a year or two before my move. New ver 1.2.0 and to have some issue. Anyway I can roll back to older ver of software?
