Android TV OS has experienced significant growth as a result of Google putting more of its support behind streaming in the living room. Google disclosed last week that Android TV currently has over 10,000 apps as part of Google I/O 2022.

The Android TV OS platform, which includes Google TV, Android TV, and Pay TV experiences from a few select businesses, now has 10,000 apps made for the large screen in the Play Store, up from 7,000 in 2020. Given that it has only been a little over two years since the last upgrade, the growth of 3,000 apps is rather remarkable.

Of course, smaller streaming options or apps with more specialized use cases are where this development really originates rather than from major services. It also stems from the fact that there are more streaming platforms available globally than there are in the US.

Google also reaffirmed earlier this year’s statistics that Android TV OS is used by 7 of the top 10 leading smart TV OEMs, including TCL and Hisense , and that there are over 110 million active devices on a monthly basis. Over 300 companies have joined the platform so far, including 170 Pay TV partners. It’s nice to see Android TV getting so many new apps, but it’s curious that Google hasn’t provided any updates on the platform’s active user base.

This information comes as Google also unveiled fresh information regarding Android TV 13 and a clever new method for casting content from the Google TV app that is supplied from a variety of streaming services.
