Old versions of android app

Ive just bought an android projector but it's android 7. Does anyone know what version of the Now TV app worked for this release of android as it's too old to see the current versions of any of the streaming apps in the play store

Re: Old versions of android app

Hi @freerangeJ 

 

Have you tried casting from a smartphone or tablet using the NowTV App if your projector has the inbuilt Google Chromecast feature ?

 

Also a NowTV Stick or Amazon Fire TV Stick will take little power when streaming.

 

Looking at this specification link the NowTV Stick takes less than 3.5 watts when streaming HD.

Hi @freerangeJ 

 

It sounds like your projector is using some sort of version of Android TV, which NowTV doesn't currently support apart from Sony Smart TV's with the Android TV OS.

 

NowTV does support Android version 7 for mobile devices such has smartphones & tablets.

 

Does your projector offer inbuilt Chromecast feature or have an a HDMI socket to use with an external HDMI device such has a NowTV or Amazon Fire Stick ?
