This week, we decided to create an Android TV application which displays pictures and adjusts the room lighting depending on the displayed picture.

We often receive requests for an Android version of the VirtualHub. It doesn't exist, but we provide an Android library enabling developers to use our modules directly from their app. However, we didn't have a solution for users who don't want to develop their own applications.
