Essential Applications for your Android TV Box – The TV Box Professionals User Guide

Here is our list of Essential Android TV Box Applications – this post is a follow up to Getting the most out of your Android TV Box

Each application is free and I have hyperlinked each to their associated download location. I recommend that you download each application or .apk file and store it on a USB removable storage device or SD Card. After you have downloaded each of the .apk files, simply insert the storage device into your Android TV Box and use the standard “Appinstaller” application to complete the installation. If you require any assistance with the process of downloading or installing .apk files, please leave a comment below, or watch this YouTube video How to do a Custom Install on your Android TV Box.

I have separated each application into the following categories;

  • Video
  • Music
  • Utilities
  • Social
  • Security
  • Email & Messenger

Most of the applications are linked directly to their download locations on however you can also access most of these apps from other locations like Google Play or
