Steps To Add Apps To Hisense Smart TV
Like all other Smart TV’s Hisense TVs have a lot of options to download, install and update apps. The Smart TV’s also preloaded with factory apps that can’t be uninstalled.
Here are some steps to add apps to the Smart TV:
Installing App Through Google Play Store
One of the most common and the most sought platform to add apps is the Google Play Store. We can also assume that it is the default app store of most users because most of the software in the TVs, PCs, and mobile platforms are based on Android.
The process involved is also very simple, and there are two methods to install the app through Google Play Store.
Through Direct Downloading
The Hisense Smart TVs are based on Android, and they have the Play Store pre-installed in them.
The director, the simplest way to download is to open the Play Store app from the home screen, type the desired app’s name and download it and let it install.
Through Screen Mirror Method
The other easy way is to download the screen mirror app from the Hisense app store, but for this task, you should have an Android phone; through the app, the television will act as a mirror of the phone’s screen so that you can use it watch it on the TV.
You can do almost everything from watching your favorite video or playing a game.
Installing App By Using VEWD
Vewd is an OTT and hybrid TV solutions providing company, but like Google Play Store, we can’t directly install the apps from Vewd. For this process, the steps are:
- First, press the app button on your Hisense Smart TVs remote.
- Now select the VEWD app store. Many categories of apps are available in the app, select the app from there and press the OK button, let it download and install.
Installing App Through The TV’s App Store
The default method to install the app is through the TV’s app store, which is pre-installed.
- The method is simple first go to the app store, then go to the search tab and press OK; through this, the onscreen keyboard will get activated.
- Please type the app’s name in the search tab and use the D-pad on the remote to select it.
- The final step is to press the green button, which will add the app to your Hisense Smart TV.

Updating The Apps
The process of updating the apps isn’t manual ( in the case of non-android Smart TV), which means that, like Android smartphones, you can’t update the apps at your own will. The apps will get updated automatically as soon as a new update is available.
But if sometimes you encounter a problem with any app at that time, you have to uninstall the app and then reinstall it.
To uninstall an app, go to the app using the remote’s navigation buttons. Once you have reached the desired app, press the app button, confirm by pressing OK; the app will uninstall.
Updating Through Google Play Store
The easiest way to update the app if your Hisense Smart TV is on an Android platform is to update it through the Play Store. The steps are simple and are the same as we used to perform on a mobile phone.
If available, go to the app store, check for the app, and look for the update button. Then press the update button the app will get updates.
If, in some cases, Google Play Store isn’t available, contact the manufacturer or the retailer from where you have purchased the Smart TV, avoid downloading from a third party or unknown app or websites.
Update Using Vewd
Vewd is an online store, or simply a cloud-base platform from there you can download apps.
Still, the only problem is that you have to update the apps manually, and if a problem occurs, the app has to be uninstalled and reinstalled, as stated earlier.
Updating The Firmware
One of the most important things of concern is to keep the Firmware of the Hisense Smart TV up to date; through this, all the operations and functions of the device can run smoothly; not updating the apps can cause problems in the nearer future.
The process is simple, first, go to the home screen, press the cog-like button in the Hisense remote, go to All, then select the about option, and then select the software update, select the detect option to check whether you have the latest firmware version or not. The process is quite familiar to us as we also use the method in our smartphones.
The majority of the apps are available in the native play store of the Hisense Smart TV, but sometimes it becomes quite difficult to update or install the app. But despite that, you should always use trusted platforms to download the app.
