  • 2 : Used to work well until update. I used to get relevant, useful search results, it was amazing. After updating I have yet to get more than a couple useful results. Please stop using this search app to push Google owned sources, (YouTube, etc.).

  • 1 : It looks like I decided to jump into Android TV at exactly the WRONG time. Back to my Apple TV 4K ...
  • 1 : Extremely slow and inconsistent on Android TV
  • 1 : Google Assistant on Android TV is a total disgrace. It's so inconsistent you never know if a command is going to work or not. Functionality gap is so great you end up with stupid YouTube recommendations most of the time anyway. It's a disaster.
  • 1 : Latest version causing huge lag on my Sony XE9005. Confirmed by uninstalling. While it is installed the action menu and pictures settings take a long time to appear. 3.0 works fine. Please fix. Latest firmware on my TV v6.2858. Factory reset also performed.
  • 1 : Ruining my Sony tv
  • 1 : When I updated this app it completely ruined the voice search capabilities of my Nexus Player. I can even go into my activity settings within my Google account and listen to the recordings before and after this app was updated. The audio that is received after this update is choppy and sped up. Example: I wanted to watch Jimmy Fallon Hashtags on youtube. Before the updated it worked perfectly, after the updated it searched "Minion Hats?"

Q: What is an APK File?

A: An Android Package Kit (APK for short) is the package file format used by the Android operating system for distribution and installation of mobile applications. Just like Windows (PC) systems use an .exe file for installing software, Android does the same.

Q: Why CloudApks.com can guarantee APK 100% safe?

A: Whenever someone wants to download an APK file from CloudApks.com, we'll check the corresponding APK file on Google Play and allow user download it directly (of course, we'll cache it on our server). If the APK file does not exist on Google Play, we'll search it in our cache.

Q: If I install an APK from CloudApks.com, will I be able to update the app from the Play Store?

A: Yes, absolutely. The Play Store installs APKs it downloads from Google's servers, and sideloading from a site like CloudApks.com goes through a very similar process, except you're the one performing the downloading and initiating the installation (sideloading).
As soon as the Play Store finds a version of the app newer than the one you've sideloaded, it will commence an update.

Q: What are Android Application permissions?

A: Applications require access to certain systems within your device. When you install an application, you are notified of all of the permissions required to run that application.
