The “Install” button adds a drop-down menu that shows the device you’re currently using as well as Android TV OS devices connected to the same account.

With the new server-side update, users can finally install an app on their Android TV devices from the Play Store on their smartphone. The option appears only for the applications that are available on Android TV.

At the moment, the feature is still been seeded out gradually and should be available to everyone in the coming weeks.

Note: The only requirement is that the same Google account needs to be logged into both the smartphone and the Android TV device.
