How To Update Apps on Devant Smart TV

Like all other devices, TVs have evolved quite a bit in the last few years. Merely browsing through channels just doesn’t do it for many people anymore. Instead, they want their TV to be a whole entertainment system.

How To Update Apps on Devant Smart TV

Almost every TV manufacturer that’s still relevant jumped on board with this trend, with more or less success. Devant TVs are somewhere in the middle in terms of capabilities. While they might not be the best option out there, they provide a decent experience.

However, there’s some confusion surrounding the way that their smart TVs’ interfaces work. Let’s clarify some of the most common issues regarding the apps that these TVs support.

How Smart Are They?

When they hear “smart TV,” most people’s immediate reaction is to think of Android. This is expected, as the biggest manufacturers of smart TVs feature this platform. But for better or worse, Devant took a different approach.

Some older models of their smart TVs came with the Opera App Store, based on the popular browser. But the users weren’t too happy with it, as it had some issues that made Devant’s TVs less smart than they were supposed to be.

The Opera App Store then got a revamp and became the Vewd App Store, part of a comprehensive operating system that’s far more capable than its predecessor. It comes pre-built in the new Devant models, like the LTV900, and offers various types of content, from on-demand videos to all kinds of apps.

So What About Updates?

It’s actually quite simple – there are none. Vewd manages all apps in the store via Vewd Cloud, from which you access and download them. This means that there are no downloads or manual updates. Instead, all apps are updated automatically, and all users get the latest version as soon as it rolls out.

Aside from the apps, Vewd Cloud also manages the media player, device settings, privacy controls, and many cloud-based services. This should ensure a seamless entertainment experience that brings all kinds of content together.

Currently, there are about 1,500 apps on the Vewd App Store, and the number is consistently growing. Of course, it’s not always a smooth ride, as apps can still malfunction. A good example of this is Plex, which didn’t work for a while and caused a bit of fuss within the community. Luckily, Vewd got it up and running again.

This brings us to the downside of this kind of cloud-based access. As you can’t update an app, you can’t downgrade it, either. This means that if an update comes with bugs, the only thing you can do is wait for the Vewd team to fix it.

For whatever reason, Devant doesn’t use the entire Vewd OS. Instead, the newest models use Vidaa U2.5 OS with Vewd App Store integration. While the OS is decent, it still comes with a few limitations. For example, there’s no way to install third-party apps the way Android TV users can. Still, it offers enough entertainment options for average users.

Frequently Asked Questions

We’ve received many questions about apps on Devant TVs. We’ll take this opportunity to answer them for you.

The Vewd app store isn’t working at all. What do I do?

If the app store isn’t working, you can try restarting your TV or reconnecting it to the internet. If that doesn’t work, visit Devant’s Contact Us page for more help.

What do I do if I can’t install apps on my Devant TV?

Unfortunately, no. But you can get an external streaming device (Firestick, Apple TV, Roku, etc.) and install any apps you want on that device. Then, stream on your Devant TV.

Hit or Miss?

It is safe to say that Devant’s approach to smart TVs is quite innovative. Cloud-based services make it easier to manage apps and remove the hassle of downloading and updating apps.

But as you can see, this approach isn’t without its shortcomings. Not every update that rolls out works perfectly, and your options are pretty limited when this happens. There’s no downgrading or uninstalling, so you’re pretty much stuck with what you get.

Vewd app store not working . Everytime i click the app store. It keeps showing “no internet connection” all other apps are working properly.
I do have internet connection, I am able to watch YouTube and Netflix. I try both wifi and ethernet and still the same message.
Steve Larner says:
Sounds like Windows, lately. Anyhow, try clearing cache, freeing up space, rebooting, and unplugging. If none of that works, delete your Wi-Fi settings and stored Wi-Fi connections, reboot, and start over.
