The Google Home app now has D-Pad controls for Android TV devices

Points Highlighted:

  • Launching the Google Home app and selecting any Android TV device will bring up an option at the bottom of the display to open the virtual remote. You would then match your device using a PIN shown on your TV and then you can continue using it with just your smartphone in hand. If you’re not already using Google Home to control your Android or Google TV device, download the app and check it out.

  • The latest Google Home version 2.47.1.0 adds a new option to switch from the old swipe control to the added D-pad control when connected to a Google TV device (as per Reddit user PhilStation). Previously, the app only had the swipe control, which is basically a large touchpad. However, the new D-pad controls should feel more natural for people used to a standard TV remote.
