Our latest ISL Light for Android release includes support for Android TV. This means you can remotely connect to an Android TV box with ISL Online remote desktop software, view the Android TV interface and make annotations to point out the issue to its user and help them solve it.
The new feature of ISL Light for Android app might be very interesting for any company which provides digital TV services. In agreement with a service provider, ISL Online can enable provider’s operators to remotely control the Android TV box in order to troubleshoot technical issues.
Although Android TV has a user-friendly interface, sooner or later an average user stumbles upon a technical issue they can’t resolve on their own. At that point, they turn for help to their provider’s call centre. A tech operator might guide a client over the phone or send a technician over to the site, but without a doubt using remote desktop software is the most efficient and cost-effective way of solving such issues.
