Although in the Android version for smartphones there are many Apps in the Play Store that allow us to record the screen and sound of our devices, this does not happen with the Android TV platform since there is no application in the Google Play Store designed for these types of devices. The only exception is the NVIDIA Shield TV, which does have a recording and streaming option implemented in its models and is called NVIDIA Share . The truth is that the NVIDIA Shield TVIt has a fairly powerful graphics chip and is therefore the most powerful Android TV device on the market; therefore, that is why it is capable of streaming or recording thanks to its powerful specifications.
In the case of the recently launched Chromecast with Google TV , which comes equipped with a more powerful graphics chip and with Android 10 we still do not know if it is possible to capture the screen natively , since in Android 10 for mobile phones the option to enable the option was introduced internal recording with the command ‘adb shell’.
