Crunchyroll Update Includes Android TV Compatibility

Crunchyroll is an app you’d expect to be getting on every platform and device that it can right? Well until today that wasn’t the case and a specific platform covered here only had partial support via Chromecast/Google Cast.

Today that all has changed! Crunchyroll is now on Android TV! Covered below are some screenshots of the UI.

As you can see from the screenshots the app follows the Leanback UI guidelines for Android TV but at the same time is not following them completely as seen by the menu layout. The app itself does allow all the usual things, sign in, premium sign up and categories. Something that I’ve yet to test but will test and report back is universal search implementation. I know within the app it works but if Crunchyroll built support for voice search from the system I’ll have to report back and let you know.
