Evolved from the traditional screen, both Smart TVs and Android TVs are multimedia capable devices with built-in apps and internet connectivity to offer a wider variety of entertainment. As you may have guessed from its name, an Android TV runs on the reputable Android operating system specially configured for TVs to transform the TV viewing experience to an on-demand one.

Here is the main difference—Android TV users have access to the Google Play Store, a huge marketplace with a massive number of apps to browse and download, making it a way more versatile choice than Smart TVs. Many of these apps are specifically developed with Android TVs in mind to provide a seamless and fuss-free viewing experience on the big screen.

Whether you are into the latest blockbusters, trending dramas, or DIY tutorials, the options are endless with an Android TV. With one click of a button, you can discover thousands of movies, shows, and videos from your favourite streaming services, including Netflix and YouTube. These subscription services even help you discover what to watch next with recently viewed content and new recommendations.

When you are in the mood for some interactive entertainment, you can pull up some games from the library in no time and have some fun by yourself, or challenge your family and friends to multiplayer battles and races. With an Android TV, there are plenty of games that can be played without game consoles or controllers. You can simply use your smartphone as the remote and get in on some gaming action right away.
