Although Android TV has access to the Google Play Store application store, it only supports applications that are optimized for use on television. The Xbox Game Pass application, despite working perfectly on Android TV, as it does not have a television interface, it cannot be found in the store, which forces us toinstall the APK file manually.

Here we have several options, such as downloading the file on our mobile from the Play Store and using it or downloading the application directly from pages like APKMirror. Keep in mind when downloading the application that, unlike on mobile devices, most Android TVs on the market are 32-bit, so if you don’t download the file whose architecture is listed as armeabi-v7a you may not be able to install it.

Xbox Game Pass [APK]

In order to install APK applications on Android TV, it is necessary, first of all, to go to the Play Store of the Android TV itself. From here, we will have to install three specific applications, each one of them fulfilling one of the three steps to follow:

  1. The first,we need an APK file. The most direct way to have it on your device is by using apps like Send Files to TV. In this article we explain in depth how it is done in a simple way.
  2. One aspect to improve about Send Files to TV is that, although it can open images, it cannot do the same with APK applications. To install it we will have to use a file explorer. There are many applications, in our case we recommend:
    • FX Explorer.
    • Solid Explorer.
  3. Once the application is installed, it will probably not appear on the home screen. You will need alauncher to access applications. In the Play Store for Android TV there are many models
    • ATV Launcher.
    • App drawer.
    • Sideload Launcher.

To log in to the Microsoft account, the remote control process is somewhat tedious. If you have the possibility to connect an accessory or use the Android TV control from your mobile, it is much easier to do. Enter the Microsoft user account in which you are subscribed to Game Pass and you are almost ready to play.

You need a controller to play

The last step is to connect a compatible controller to be able to play is to connect a controller. If your Android TV has a USB port, you may be able to use it to connect your remote, although the usual thing here will be that you use the bluetooth connection. For this, it will be necessary that we go to the device settings, and in the accessories section click on link a new Bluetooth device.
