Right now, in order to install apps on Android TV, you will have to launch the Play Store on the TV itself. Afterward, you will have to look for any required product, that isn’t always convenient to do, especially in the absence of a keyboard or voice control. Well,  the good news is that the process is going to be changed and Android TV users would be able to download any app directly from their smartphones on the Android TV.

As mentioned above, the process of installing the app on Android TV is devised in such a way that when you tap on the Install button in the Play Store, a pop-up menu appears; which shows all the synced devices, which includes smartwatches and Android TV.
