If you just so happen to own a Google TV, you may want to head to the App Store and pick-up Google’s brand new Google TV Remote app. The completely FREE download, launching today, has been solely designed to turn your iPhone into a fully-functional digital remote for your Google TV unit.
“Turn your Apple iOS device into a fully functional Google TV remote! — Use the mouse pad, arrow keys, and the full range of buttons,” the app’s official store description reads.
The company notes that the app also allows you to turn the TV and AVR on and off, so you can use this as your television’s primary remote. Heck, you can even search for your favourite TV shows using your voice!
Compatible with all Google TV models, to get started with the new app you’ll want to first connect your iOS device to the same network as your Google TV. Once that’s done, though, it’s just a case of launching Google TV Remote and you’re away!
Note: The app is currently only available to those in the U.S.
