Here find all the great apps available on the Play Store that let you turn your Android phone into a remote control for your television. Finding physical remotes is always cumbersome and more often than not, we easily misplace them. To replace the need for one, you can simply use your phone to control your TV. Rather than relying on a IR blaster, these apps communicate your TV via WiFi which is logical as almost all modern TVs are connected to the internet.
Most TV manufacturers have special applications for their smart TVs. These applications, as a rule, have everything you need to turn a smartphone into a full-fledged remote. The application connects to your TV via Wi-Fi. Programs of this kind allow you to switch the channel or adjust the volume, launch applications on the TV and so on. Almost all smart TVs from Samsung, LG and Sony have similar programs. So just visit the manufacturer’s website or take a look at the user manual.
Best Remote Control Apps on Android to Control TVs
There are a lot of applications that can turn your Android phone into TV Remote but we have gathered the list of best application available. Ahead you will find the list of the applications:
If such an application was not found, then Google Home will come to your aid. This is by far one of the best remote control applications. Its main function is to manage devices with support for Google Home and Google Chromecast. This means that you will need something similar. However, most modern TVs have a kind of “built-in” Chromecast, which is usually written in the instructions. As a last resort – you can empirically check whether you have built-in Chromecast or not. Otherwise, everything is quite simple. All you need to do is connect the TV and smartphone to the same network, select the show, movie, song, image or something else on the phone, and “send” it to the TV.

AnyMote is one of the best TV remote control apps. It boasts support for more than 900,000 devices, a list of which is regularly updated. As you understand, AnyMote is suitable not only for TV. The program has support for SLR cameras, air conditioners and almost any equipment that has an infrared sensor. The program itself is simple and convenient. There are even special buttons for Netflix and Hulu services.
SURE Universal Smart TV Remote
It is also one of the best TV remote control apps. Like Anymote, other devices are also supported here. However, among the additional features it is worth noting the availability of the ability to “send” photos to the TV via WiFi. And how often do you lose the remote control from the TV?

Twinone Universal Remote
Twinone Universal Remote is perhaps one of the easiest programs to learn. At the same time, there are also quite flexible settings inside the program itself. Moreover, the interface and the location of the buttons here can be changed as you wish. There is even support for some fairly “ancient” devices. The only bad news is the advertisement. It is very strange to see ads on the remote when you want to switch ads on TV. Moreover, Twinone does not provide a way to get rid of it. There is no paid version. Strange decision. But working with old TVs and fine tuning can still bribe.
