Android has become ubiquitous in a relatively short period thanks to it ease of use and excellent features. This operating has attracted developers to create apps of all kinds which further expand its capabilities. While it started as a mobile project, it is now finding use in various other types of devices and applications. For example, the Android box has become a popular device for the living room as a home entertainment machine. It follows the footsteps of the VHS, BetaMax, DVD player, and similar equipment meant to be hooked to the television. It can provide the following functionalities:
The Android box is mainly used to stream media from the Internet to the home. Subscription services can provide content such as blockbuster movies and popular shows. These can be accessed on-demand for immediate gratification. You no longer have to wait for a particular time to see a show on TV as you can just search the title and find what you’re looking for. You don’t have to purchase a DVD or Blu-Ray of a film as you are likely to see it on the list of available titles as well. As long as you have high-speed broadband, you should be able to have a smooth viewing experience.
Most Android games that you can see on the store can be installed on the box as well. You are not limited to viewing as you can also play to your heart’s content, effectively turning the device into a console. This will not have the same power as other well-known gaming consoles but it can still give you countless hours of fun with casual titles. The same is true with apps. Install what you want and use it on a wide screen. You will soon find yourself checking tweets on TV, looking at the weather forecasts, and getting stock market quotes.
Browse the Web
Since you will be connected to the Internet via Wi-Fi or Ethernet cable, you can connect to the web just like when you are using a phone or a laptop. Go ahead and browse different sites to search for whatever’s on your mind. Many will use this capability to look for the shows that they might want to watch. For example, you can input the names of the actors you love and check their latest projects. You can also look for the latest Oscar winners to see what the buzz is about. Search for news and share it with the family.
With an Android box, the possibilities are endless.
