Configure screen orientation of Android TV device

expand collapsive

Hello,

I have a couple of Android TV devices in our retail store and would like to set the screen orientation to portrait mode. I tried implementing it via ‘Restrictions’ under Android and ‘Web-App’ under Android Kiosk Lockdown’ mode. But nothing reflects on the device end. Am I missing out on something here?

  • Hey @_patricia_,

    Thanks for reaching out to us.

    Unfortunately, many Android TV devices are natively designed to work in landscape mode. The firmware of many TV boxes is customized to force the screen orientation to landscape. One workaround for this issue is to download third-party apps like set orientation or screen orientation control which are available on Google Play Store that provide options to set the screen orientation to portrait.

    Cheers!
