Google’s in-house browser Google Chrome can be installed to your Android TV from the Play Store. Did you know that? It doesn’t work particularly well since the browser is designed primarily for touchscreens and not a DPAD. With a USB mouse (or NVIDIA’s game controller) it can be navigated pretty well.
But what if you want to quickly search for something? Redditor Humpsel found this neat feature in Android TV: universal search results also return results from Google Chrome.
As you can see, it will search your history and favorites to find the relevant links and share them with you. Opening one of these cards links you directly there in Chrome. It’s not a particularly great solution as browsing is still difficult with a remote or gamepad, but it is a nice way to use the browser while still taking advantage of native Android TV features.
