6 days ago   |   By Liliputing

Android TV: Happy Birthday Mi Box, Where's The Nougat Update?

Owners of Chromecast and Android TV devices can now use Google Assistant on an Android mobile phone to control content. It is not quite clear when this feature first became available, and it is also not currently clear if it is available to all users. However, for some at least, the functionality is now live.
