Hello Mi Fans,
Hope you guys are having loads of fun here in Mi Community. We are again back with the Tech Class session.
In today's 'Tech Class Chapter' we will know more about Android TV and how wonderful it is!
What is Android TV?
Android TV is a platform that puts entire power of Android inside the TV. This means that anything you can can do in an android phone can be done on the TV except a few things. Android TV has been specifically designed for the bigger screen. It has a dedicated interface, better controller and remote support, a specifically curated Play Store, and all the other goodness you’d expect from a streaming set-top box.It offers voice controls and gives you control across other devices, like your Android phone and Android Wear watch. The card-based interface behaves in a familiar way, making it easier to do the things you want to do without a convoluted menu system. Essential entertainment apps are available, and there's the opportunity for Android's app developers to adapt apps for the big screen experience. That can be anything from information services like weather, through to gaming. Android TV lets you quickly customise your TV's content to suit you.

Difference Between Android TV and Android Box?
Android Tv comes preloaded with the Android Software out of the box so need to attach any hardware device to the TV but Android box most widely used for converting the normal television into a modern Smart TV just by an hardware extension .The price for a smart TV does not match its computing power compared to the hardware a android box can offer Android TV is a platform actively supported by Google that gives all devices some of the same features but Android boxes are an uncoordinated group of devices from a variety of manufacturers that run stock Android with perhaps some OEM modifications
Google assistant
Meet your Google Assistant: it’s your own personal Google, always ready to help, and is now available on Android Tv devices. With the Google Assistant built-in, you can ask your Google Assistant to check the score of your favorite team, control your TV, dim the lights, and more - using just your voice from from the voice controlled TV remote either it might be connected with the TV over bluetooth connection
There's plenty of great games for Android TV although playing them with a remote control isn't the can better  pairing up a Bluetooth-enabled game can play some casual games by downloading from the playstore and it depends upon the hardware capabilities of the Android TV

Apps and online streaming
The Google Play Store in the Android TV is nowhere near as jam-packed as the one on your Android smartphone. Android TV's Play Store simply shows dedicated apps that have been developed with the big screen in mind. However, you can theoretically add any Android app to your system - such is the beauty of Google's open-source approach. We say theoretically because some apps just won't work on a TV by installing them manually.most of the apps like netflix,android prime,hotstar are available for downloading and without any interruption we can watch our favorite Tv series and channels endlessly

Music streaming
With Android TV you can listen to the music by streaming from the various online music streaming apps and services and it can played through the connected speakers or wireless headphones for better experience right at your comfort place

Google cast
Google cast built in with the Android TV which means you can cast the photos and videos right from the smartphone or from the tablets to showcase it in the bigger screen

Daydream Screensaver
Even when your TV was idle it could show you useful information that’s exactly how we will be using daydream in our android TV to give us relevant useful information when the TV is idle you can customize the TV to display the time,date and weather along with a lot of other customization option

We hope In our ahead generation normal TV will become extinct and there will be more advanced version of Android Televisions .This will be help us take break from our smartphone to spend our leisure time with the online contents and to make our living home more smarter
