How to install Google Chrome on TCL Smart TV

Step 1: Go to the Play Store and sign in.

Before you can install Google Chrome on your TCL TV, you'll need a few apps. These apps are for installing Google Chrome and evaluating the CPU architecture of your TV.

Step 2: Get the AIDA64 programme.

In the Google TV Play Store, look for AIDA64. Choose and put in place.

Step 3: Examine Your Processor Architecture.

Go to the CPU area of the AIDA64 app after opening it. This sidebar will have several components, including a thermal, system, and network. Do not be frightened. Look for the Supported ABIs heading in the CPU section. Make a note of the text that appears next to this heading.

For instance, armeabi-v7a and armeabi. The first is the favoured option.

Step 4: Use A Different Device To Download The APK File.

On your laptop or phone, download the Google Chrome APK from APKMirror. ApkMirror is the address. The description part will be visible. Scroll down to the section titled "All Versions."

Here, select the most recent version of Google Chrome. When you click the download option, you'll be sent to a page with all of the available versions. Now, download the APK for the architecture of your TCL TV that you noted down. The Bundle version should not be downloaded. The architecture information is listed next to the application variant's version.

Step 5: Copy To Storage Media.

Copy the Google Chrome APK file to a USB Flash Drive once you've downloaded the correct APK file for your laptop or mobile device.

Step 6: Download Solid File Explorer.

Search for Solid File Explorer on the Play Store and install it on your TCL TV.

Step 7: Unknown Sources Installation should be enabled.

Your Android/Smart TV does not enable you to install apps from sources other than the Google Play Store for security concerns. If this option is deactivated on your device, you won't be able to install the Google Chrome APK.

Open your TV's settings to enable this feature. Go to Device Preferences now. Here you'll find security and limitations. Choose it. Navigate to Unknown Sources now. This will take you to a page where you can install unknown programmes.

This is where you'll discover Solid File Explorer. Now that you've enabled the toggle next to the app, you're ready to go. By hitting the Home button, you can return to the home screen.

Step 8: Open Solid File Explorer.

By pressing the left arrow key on the remote, open the File Explorer App and then the sidebar. Your storage media name will most likely be in the middle of this sidebar. Click OK when you've navigated to the name of your storage media.

Locate the Google Chrome APK you just downloaded and transferred here while you're inside your Storage Media.

Step 9: Install Google Chrome.

Finally, you can install Google Chrome. Click on the APK and select ok.

This will open the Android Installation screen. It will give you 2 options. Install and Cancel. Click install. Wait for the application to install. Once it’s done installing, App Installed will be displayed. Now close this screen and return to the home screen by pressing the Home button.

Step 10: Locate Google Chrome.

Because this is a sideloaded software, it will not appear in your applications directory or on your home screen. You must manually search for Google Chrome on your TV using the Google Assistant search box, or (if this does not work), offer the command, open Google Chrome to the Google Assistant to launch the app.

Step 11: Force Chrome to Desktop Site.

The installation procedure is now complete, and you can begin using the browser; however, if you want to improve your experience, continue to the next step.

The Google Chrome app has traditionally been designed for mobile devices (Android). As a result, the app on your TV will load websites in the style of a mobile phone. Websites look best when viewed in the 16:9 desktop mode on a television. Google Chrome includes a setting that allows you to request that the site load in desktop mode every time you visit it, but enabling it every time you visit can be inconvenient.

How to force desktop sites on all websites

Follow these instructions to force desktop sites on all websites you visit.

In your browser's URL bar, type chrome::/flags.

The Chrome browser will take you to the experimental settings panel.

Scroll all the way down to the desktop mode option. There will be three options available to you: default, enabled, and disabled. Set the setting to enabled instead of default. Chrome should be saved and closed. Now is the time to relaunch.

All of the websites you visit will now be in desktop mode.

In addition to your TCL remote, you can use a desktop mouse to navigate on your TV.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):

Q. How Do I Get Google On My TCL Android TV?

A. If you have an Android TV, Google is already preinstalled. You can use the Google Assistant search bar at the top of your screen to conduct a Google search, or you can ask the Google assistant a question.

Q. How Do I Install Google Chrome On My Smart TV?

A. You'll need to sideload Chrome from a different device onto your TV. Download the appropriate APK for your TV's architecture, save it to a pen drive, connect it to your TV, and install it. To begin, enable the option to install from unknown sources.

Q. Does my Android TV has a built in browser?

A. Because Android TVs are designed for streaming, they don't come with a browser by default. Google Chrome isn't compatible with Android TVs, either. If you want to use Google Chrome on your TV, you can sideload it by downloading an APK and installing it.
