How do I update apps on my TV?

Answered by Willian Lymon

To update apps on your TV, follow these steps:

1. Open the Google Play Store: On your TV, navigate to the Google Play Store. Depending on your TV menu, you may need to select the Apps section first to find the Play Store.

2. Access your profile: Once you’re in the Play Store, look for your profile icon in the top-right corner of the screen. It might be represented by your initials or an avatar. Select it to access your profile settings.

3. Manage apps and games: In your profile settings, you should see a “Manage apps and games” option. Choose this to view a list of all the apps installed on your TV.

4. Check for updates: Within the “Manage apps and games” section, select the “Updates” tab. This will display a list of apps that have available updates.

5. Choose the apps to update: You can now go through the list of apps and select the ones you want to update. If you only want to update specific apps, choose them one by one. Alternatively, if you want to update all the apps that have updates available, select the “Update all” option.

6. Wait for the updates: Once you’ve selected the apps to update, your TV will begin downloading and installing the updates. The time it takes will vary depending on the size of the updates and your internet connection speed. It’s best to ensure your TV is connected to a stable internet connection for faster updates.

7. Enjoy the updated apps: After the updates are installed, you can now enjoy the latest versions of your apps on your TV. The updated apps may bring new features, bug fixes, and improved performance.

It’s worth mentioning that the steps may slightly vary depending on the brand and model of your TV. However, most smart TVs running on Android TV or similar platforms should have a similar process for updating apps through the Google Play Store.

In my personal experience, updating apps on a TV is straightforward and usually doesn’t require much technical knowledge. It’s a good practice to regularly check for updates to ensure you have the latest features and security patches for your apps.
