Setup Android devices with Play Digital Signage

Install the player app from Google Play Store or scan the QR code below:
If you can’t use Play Store on your device, you can download the APK file from here:
Please note that if you install the app from APK file it will not be automatically updated
2. Set as home screen app (recommended)
To ensure that your player starts together with Android operating system, we recommend setting it as a ‘launcher app’. Android should prompt you to choose default launcher application when pressing home screen, or you can configure it in Settings->Home.
Alternatively if your Android device does not permit changing home screen app, you can configure our app to launch on operating system startup by going to our app Settings and turn on Launch player on startup option.
[AndroidTV owners]If you are running an AndroidTV device (usually Sharp or Sony smart TV), you need to also install and configure Launch on Boot application to start the player after device has booted.
3. Give permissions
Upon first launch the app will ask for storage and Internet permission. These permissions are essential for our app to work!
4. Link the screen
You can link the screen to your account on the screens page by entering the 6 character code.
