Posted on April 9, 2019 by Kat Armstrong 2 CommentsThe best part about getting a new phone – or just having one at all – iscustomizing it the way you want. This includes the apps you choose to keep onyour device… the games, social networks or shopping apps. Let’s face it: thereare literally millions of apps you can choose from. Sadly, none of us have thespace on our phone to install everything that is available, nor would we wantto. I shudder to think of some of the things that are hanging around in thePlay Store! In any case, installing and uninstalling apps on your Galaxy J7 isjust as simple as could be. There are even two methods to uninstall your apps,both of which I will discuss here!

Installing Apps on Your Device


Open the Google Play Store app on your phone and type in the specific app youwant to download, or browse around until you find one that suits you. Once youhave made your choice, simply tap to open it and select the ”Install” button.This will automagically download and install the app for you.Once finished, you can open the app and start enjoying it. You may also wantto add the app icon your Home Screen or move it into a folder you have createdso that you can easily find it the next time you want to use it.To add an app to the Home Screen, hold your finger down on it until it shakesand a tiny menu pops up. Choose ”Add to Home.” From there, you can hold yourfinger down on the app and move it wherever you choose on the device’sscreen/s.If you want all apps to be added to the Home Screen as soon as they areinstalled, head into your ”Settings.” Tap ”Display” and then ”Home Screen.’Scroll down until you see ”Add Apps to Home…” and toggle that option to on bysliding the little dot to the right. You can then turn this off at any time ifyou so choose later.

Removing Apps from Galaxy J7


There are two different ways to uninstall your apps on your device. Theeasiest method is to hold your finger down on the app you wish to remove untilit begins to shake and the little menu pops up. Select ”Uninstall.” This onlytakes a few seconds and the work is done for you.However, you may wish to remove several apps all at once or review which onesare currently installed. To do this, open up the Google Play Store app again.At the top-left corner, tap on the three lines and then choose ”My apps andgames.” Choose to show ”Installed” apps only. Scroll through the list and takea gander at the things you have installed already on your phone. Make note ofanything you may want to get rid of.When you come across an app you are ready to remove, simply tap on its name inthat list to open it. From here, you will see the option to ”Uninstall.” Justtap that and the app does the work for you once again.Now that you know how to easily install and uninstall apps on your Galaxy J7,which ones are your favorites? What do you use most often? Which ones can youlive without? Personally, I tend to use Facebook and Play Books the most – Iread far too much these days instead of doing other things.

Android TV 9 (Pie) – Installation


Installation of the television is very easy. At startup you first select thelanguage. You then link a Google account to the television. That has become abit easier in Android 9. The television shows you a five-digit code, which youmust enter on your smartphone on the website androidtv.com/setup.blonde19659007. Then you choose which Google account you want to use on yoursmartphone and you’re done. Accept the terms of use and decide whether youwant to give the television access to your location. A new skill: the TV nowasks you immediately which apps to install. These are of course based on yourprevious use of Android TV.In the last steps you select your country, set a pin code and if desiredactivate the Philips Smart TV apps and associated usage conditions.If you use the built-in tuners (terrestrial, cable or satellite), then youtune in the channels as a last step. Before you get started, Philips shows youanother screen in which it explains how you can best use your OLED TV toprevent burn-in (of course only on OLED TVs).

Android TV 9 (Pie) – Home Screen


The Home screen of Android TV 9 remains almost completely unchanged comparedto Android TV 8. It fills the entire screen, a choice that we continue toregret somewhat. The lighter approach of LG and Samsung, where a large part ofthe image remains visible, is still our preference.At the top of the screen on the right you will find a number of icons. IfAndroid TV has something to tell you, it will show how many notificationsthere are. Just click on that icon and you will see what is going on, like inthis case the network failure.If there are no messages, the first icon at the top right is that for theinputs. The list of inputs not only contains the HDMI connections, but alsothe TV channels, a link to the USB and network media player, but also appssuch as VLC and Google Play Films. Unfortunately, we found no way to removethose apps, or to change the order.By right clicking you also immediately see all TV channels, and another clickto the right brings you directly to the TV.HDMI connections can give you a different name and icon by selecting the inputin the menu (there is a yellow circle next to it with a ‘+’ symbol) andpressing the ‘+’ key on the remote.The gear icon is of course the shortcut for the settings menu. On a Philipsdevice this leads to a general menu, where you will find all other settings,including the Android settings, in addition to image and sound.The rest of the screen is occupied by the Android TV ‘channels’.

Android TV 9 (Pie) – Channels


The first row is the list of apps, with a number of ‘content channels’ perapplication. This can be, for example, Netflix, YouTube or Spotify, but alsothe built-in TV tuners. Theoretically, any app that offers content can appearthere, but the app must of course support this. Some apps also offer multiplechannels. For example, you can install the Trending and / or the Recommendedchannel on YouTube.Theoretically, channels can also show preview video or audio, simply byselecting a tile, but that didn’t work for any channel.The first channel that appears is ‘Play Next’. This is where theoretical filmsend up that you have not yet fully seen, the next episode of a series, and soon. In other words, Google offers you the things that you think you want tolook further into. The content in “Play after” can come from different sourcesand can be set (see below). Unfortunately we never saw the ‘Play after’channel.

Android TV 9 (Pie) – Useful apps


The apps take place at the top of the screen, the row that you find there canbe seen as your favorites. If you want to see all installed apps, select the“Apps” icon and press ok.At the top you will find the Google Play store and the Games store, where youcan of course look up and install new apps. Below that a grid with allinstalled apps. Clicking starts the app, but if you press and hold the OK keyon an app, the options screen appears. You can change the location of theapps, add or remove them from the favorites list (which appears on the HomeScreen), and possibly remove them. You can also adjust the list of favoriteapps on the Home screen in this way.

Remote app


A special mention for the Android TV remote app. It is very limited infunctionality, but is pretty handy if you don’t want too much hassle. The appoffers a d-pad and touchpad, each with a microphone button above it and abutton for Back, Home and Play / Pause below.Philips also has its own app, “Philips TV Remote App. It offers morefunctionality.

Android TV 9 (Pie) – Chromecast


Chromecast is a streaming protocol that allows you to do various things. Withapps that support Chromecast, you can browse the range on your smartphone andthen by clicking the Chromecast symbol, send the content to your Android TV.The smart thing about Chromecast is that you don’t send the entire movie, butonly a link. The TV then receives the content itself. You can continue to useyour smartphone. Install the Google Home App for a list of compatible apps.(or view here )Another option is to send the entire smartphone screen to the television(mirroring or mirroring). You do that best from the Google Home app, whichautomatically finds compatible televisions on your network. You can alsofreeze through the Android settings on your smartphone, but unfortunatelyevery manufacturer hides it in a different place.
