Let’s not kid ourselves - TVs play a huge part in our lives, with living areas in our homes often centred around them. Immersive experiences in the form of video, music and games provide a way for us to relax and bond with those around us and now with Jetpack Compose, we can build modernised apps for the TV platform.

In this talk, we’ll cover the different concepts of building apps for Android TV. You’ll learn how to build your own apps using the TV APIs available for Jetpack Compose, allowing you to build your own immersive experiences for Android TV.
