Android TV is now even on older Windows laptops

Published

Android TV is a form of Google’s mobile operating system specially modified for televisions and digital media players. In general, Android TV differs from regular Android mainly in its interface, which is largely focused on voice and text content search. Created by senior XDA Developers forum member AmznUser444 Dev, the Android TV port x86 aims to be an easy and convenient way to get apps, games and multimedia content on your PC connected to a big screen.

LAN, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and sound should work out of the box. The initial build is based on Android 9 Pie and its system requirements mention a dual-core 64-bit processor clocked at 1.2GHz and a typical Intel, Nvidia, AMD GPU with 64MB VRAM. So Android TV x86 is quite capable of turning your old computer connected to a large screen into a media streamer.

Known Issues List: “Android TV Detected” stuck message in a section other than EXT4. Chromecast built-in doesn’t work without DRM support. This build also lacks the Widevine L1 certification, so services like Netflix won’t stream in HD.

You can download the archive for installation from the official website of this project.
