Android TV App Development: Why Businesses Should give a Thought to it?

  • Since there is a significant distance between the viewer and TV, the users would not be able to process as much information on as they would on a mobile or computer device which is handheld. That is why the apps for TV usually have limited text and reading time on screens. Instead, the necessary information is displayed on screens and progressive disclosures are used on TV to unveil more info. The TV apps should provide the shortest possible path to content.
  • Since the TV screen always displays content on landscape mode, the screen orientation should always be landscape. While on mobile devices, the users have the option to switch screen orientation to landscape and portrait.
