  2. Press the “Home” button on your remote control to access the Home menu.
  3. Scroll down to the “Apps” section and select it using your remote control.
  4. From the Apps menu, select the Google Play Store app.
  5. Once you are in the Google Play Store app, find the app you want to install. 
  6. You can also browse different categories or see recommendations.
  7. Select the app you want to install and then click the “Install” button.
  8. Wait for the app to download and install.

If you follow all these steps just right, you should find yourself with an endless number of apps at your disposal.
