The Philips Smart TV has an advantage over other smart TVs in that it runs on Android. This means that you can download and install an app from Google Play Store.
APK files can also be installed. When you add an app to Philips Smart TV, it should work properly to give you the services you need. Sometimes, however, these applications do not work properly when used.

- You’re using an old app
