Enriching Your Media Apps

  • Paul Trebilcox-Ruiz


While the application that you built in the last chapter is a nice demonstration of how to create a bare-bones media app, you will undoubtedly want to add more features for your users. Luckily, the Android TV platform and Leanback Support library offer multiple tools that you can use to improve your app and engage with your users. In this chapter you will learn how to implement simple versions of global and local search, adding a preferences screen to your app and supplying recommendations to the Android TV home screen recommendations row by updating the demo app you created in the last chapter. You will also learn about additional features that are available for Android TV, such as live channels and the Now Playing card.
