Smart YouTube TV is a free third-party app for YouTube with a variety of advanced features. Many users attest to its superiority over the official application. The developer designed this safe-to-use software for Android-based Smart TVs. Just like the original YouTube app, you can still sync your Google Account to it.
Developer Yuriy Lyskov designed Smart YouTube TV to be not only free to use but also ad-free with a built-in adblocker. The app supports resolutions of up to 4K.
The app boasts user-specific recommendations which work based on your history, preferences, and location. It also has a multilingual keyboard, meaning you can type in whatever language you prefer and change it as you wish.
There’s no need to worry about app updates, as you’ll receive notifications when they happen. If you can’t wait to try out the new changes, you can always download the latest beta release.
This software has a sleek and easy-to-use interface, which means that you’ll have no trouble just starting it right up and loading your favourite videos.
Choosing a launcher
When you start the software, there will be four different launchers to choose from: Lite Alt, Pro Alt, Lite Main, and Pro Main. The Lite launchers don’t have as many features as the Pro versions but open videos faster. The Pro versions support 60fps and AFR.
To use this app, first, and most importantly, you’re going to have to enable unknown sources in the security options of your TV. This tweak will allow the app to run. Secondly, you’ll have to download and install the APK. After installation, you will find the shortcut on the home screen of your TV.
Fixing the issues
Smart YouTube TV has managed to fix the issues prevalent with the original YouTube app. It’s well worth the download. With a simple setup, a small file size of just a couple of megabytes, and tons of useful features, what is there to lose?
