How To Go Android All Over The House

Why the world seems to be still divided between Windows an OS, there is a runner in the background that holds its own. That runner is, of course, Android. While Android does have its fair share of the market when it comes to mobile, it doesn’t seem to get the credit; it is due elsewhere.

Today we are going to look at the best uses for Android devices and  their applications around the home.

Android TV

While most people are more than familiar with the existence of Android mobile phones; people are not so familiar with the existence of Android TV boxes. 

When you get to see just how remarkable and adaptable these inexpensive boxes genuinely are, you will soon be wishing you had heard of them sooner. 

An Android TV box is very similar to having a small PC plugged into your television. The beauty of this little box is that does not only give you everything you could want from a smart TV, you also have access to tons more.

With the newer Android TV boxes, you now also have access to something called Emulation Station (ES). ES is a fantastic piece of software that allows you to play all of your favourite games from the past. 

Of course, the main reason everybody buys Android TV is for the ability and access to entertainment. There is, of course, access to Netflix and Prime video, but there are also a plethora of opportunities. There are third-party applications that can make your experience with Android TV so much better. Why not follow this tutorial on popcorn time and enjoy a little extra magic when it comes to your Android TV box.

Why Use Windows?

In most households there is generally the presence of either a Windows PC or a Mac running OS. What most people don’t realise is, Android as an operating system is possible.

Ok, so running Android on your main PC may not be viable, but if you have an old laptop or touch screen netbook laying around, installing Android can give it a new lease of life. A few years ago installing Android on a laptop was a huge no go area. This was due to the support available for hardware, thankfully this is no longer the case.

Now, with a little patience and the right attitude, installing Android on a laptop couldn’t be easier. There are, of course, many benefits to having a laptop that runs Android, the main ones being the availability of apps and software available for free. 

Another huge advantage is having a laptop running Android that is more powerful than a tablet will give you better access to Google smart features. Google is developing some incredible and powerful smart features at the moment, so having access to their smart tech will make life a lot easier.

As you can see, you can align your holy trinity when it comes to technology. All you need now is an Android smartwatch, and you are the Android master.
