What Can TCL Android TV Offer You and Why Do You Need One?






TCL Android TV is a series of smart televisions developed by TCL Corporation. It includes many models, such as the TCL S-Series and P-Series. The first generation of TCL Android TVs was released in 2011, and it featured a proprietary operating system called "T-Cast". In 2015, TCL began using Google's Android operating system on their devices, which led to the creation of the second generation of products.



What is Android TV?


Android TV is a smart TV platform that runs on various devices. The operating system was created by Google and then given to other manufacturers so they could use it in their products.

Android TV is designed to integrate with Google's other services such as YouTube, Google Play, Android, and Google Assistant. This makes searching for content across multiple platforms easy while providing a consistent user experience across all your devices.

TCL includes the ability to run apps right on your television screen, while others simply allow you to stream them from your phone or tablet via Bluetooth connection (or wired Ethernet).



TCL Android TV Features


HDR-High Dynamic Range (available in S52 series and S68 series)


As the name suggests, HDR is a technology that delivers a wider range of colors and contrast to create a more lifelike picture. It uses technologies like high dynamic range (HDR) and wide color gamut to improve image quality.

The problem with current LCD TVs is that they can only produce a certain range of brightness levels. This means that when you watch an action movie or play video games, dark scenes will appear too dim, and bright scenes will look washed out. HDR solves this problem by allowing your TCL Android TV to display more brightness while still keeping the blacks deep and rich.


4K HDR(available in P61 series and P71 series )


4K HDR has a resolution of 3840 x 2160, which means it offers four times the resolution of Full HD (1080p). It also supports HDR, or high dynamic range. This means you can enjoy better contrast and deeper colors than before.


4K HDR PRO(available in C71 series, C72 series, and C81 series)


4K HDR PRO is the next level of 4K resolution. It’s a resolution of 4096 x 2160 and supports HDR10, which is a new standard for high dynamic range. The difference between 4K HDR PRO and 4K HDR is like the difference between watching a movie on an old CRT TV and seeing it in IMAX theaters. Even though both offer great resolution, the latter provides you with much more detail and clarity.


Mini Led (available in the C82 series)


What is TCL Mini LED?

TCL Mini LED is a type of LED backlight technology used in LCD TVs. It’s a technology that has allowed TCL to create flat screens with thinner frames than ever before. It also allows them to create larger screen sizes at lower costs and with less power consumption. The main advantage of this type of display over traditional LCD panels is its ability to reproduce very dark blacks and maintain an excellent contrast ratio even in bright rooms where other types may struggle or even wash out completely.


 8K · Quantum dot · HDR 10+(available in X91 series, X92 series )


TCL's 8K TVs are the first to offer HDR 10+, a new standard for high dynamic range (HDR) content. This means it can display better-looking colors and more detail in darker areas of an image, making your shows and movies look even more real. The TVs also have a built-in quantum dot filter that provides more color gamut coverage, so you can enjoy vivid colors without having to worry about them fading or losing their vibrancy over time.


Built-in Chromecast


In simple terms, Chromecast is a streaming device that allows you to cast content from your phone or tablet to your TV. T-cast is the name of TCL’s own version of Google Cast built into their Android TVs. The idea behind both services is the same: using your mobile device as a remote control for your TV by mirroring what appears on the screen so that it can be viewed on a larger screen.

Because most people won't understand if you use "T-cast" instead of "Google Cast" when discussing this feature in general, it's preferable to use "Google Cast" instead (unless you have an older model). There isn't much more that distinguishes them outside the fact that each of them lets you use apps like Netflix or YouTube while simultaneously streaming content over Wi-Fi (no cords needed). This means there's no need to put cables into various gadgets so that they can all communicate with one another – everything can now be done wirelessly, which makes setting up large events at home much simpler!


Google Assistant for TCL Android TV


TCL has a Google Assistant for their TCL Android TV, which means that you can use voice commands to control your television. This is especially useful if you need to find something on Netflix or YouTube while simultaneously streaming content over Wi-Fi (no cords needed).

To use Google Assistant on your TCL Android TV, simply say "Ok Google" followed by a command or question. For example, you can ask Google Assistant to search for something, play music or videos from YouTube and Netflix, control smart home devices like lights and thermostats, etc.

The Google Assistant will also be able to answer your questions and provide you with information about the shows you’re watching.


Micro Dimming


Micro dimming is a proprietary technology that combines hardware and software to deliver superior contrast and black levels. Micro dimming delivers a more immersive picture with a higher contrast ratio and better black levels. All the TCL Android televisions are equipped with this feature, which means that you get the best viewing experience on all types of content, whether it's movies or sports shows.


TCL TV Web Browser·


This is one of the most important features of any smart TV as it allows you to access the internet directly from your TV. Android TV comes with a built-in web browser, which can be accessed by selecting the "Web Browser" option on your remote control. The web browser is separate from the main Android interface and has its own icon in the top row of apps in your app menu.

The TCL Web Browser is preinstalled on all TCL devices and works well for simple tasks like checking email or reading news articles from around the world, but it isn't designed for complex tasks such as editing documents or creating presentations that require more than just text input.


TCL Home&Google Home


The Google Home app allows users to control the TCL Android TV using voice commands. It can be accessed by selecting the "Google Home" option on your remote control. The Google Home app allows users to control the TCL Android TV using voice commands. It also provides access to all of the services and apps that are available on the device. You can also use this app to watch videos from YouTube, watch movies from Google Play Movies & TV, or listen to music through Spotify or Pandora.



Good TV, Better Value


TCL Android TV provides you with the best viewing experience. It comes with micro-dimming technology and AI, which means it can deliver picture quality no matter what angle you are watching from. TCL Android TVs will also support the Dolby Vision HDR color standard, so movies and shows will look incredibly rich and colorful on your TV screen.

Along with this amazing picture quality, it's also easy to use. You can browse the internet on your TV by using the TCL Web Browser app or Google Chrome cast (you'll need a wireless network), stream videos from YouTube or Netflix, play games with an Xbox One controller connected via USB port or wirelessly over Bluetooth 4.1 support, or listen to music from Spotify in stereo sound quality through built-in speakers in front of the TV.
