Pro Tip: How to Push Apps to Your SHIELD TV

by Brian Choi

Have you ever found yourself looking for an app on SHIELD and were unable to find it when you KNOW that it’s available? If an app or game doesn’t appear in your search results, for example, it’s possible the item isn’t available in your country or compatible with your device. In other instances, developers can limit their apps or games to select countries, devices, and service providers. So just because you don’t see an app when browsing from SHIELD doesn’t mean that it isn’t available.

So What to Do?

Head over to the Google Play Store on your web browser. Once there enter the name of the app that you’re looking for. We were looking for the CNNgo for Android TV app. Once there simply hit the “Install” button. This will bring up a dropdown menu that shows which of your devices the app is compatible with.
