How to Install APK on LG Smart TV From USB

This guide is for you if you own an LG Smart TV and have never installed an APK from a USB drive. This guide will show you how to install an APK on your LG Smart TV from a USB drive. This guide is made specifically for LG Smart TVs, but the process will be similar for other brands of smart TVs.

If you’re looking to install APK (Android application) files on your LG Smart TV from a USB drive, you can use a few different methods. One option is to use the built-in file manager on your TV. This method is simple and easy to use, but it may not be the most user-friendly approach. 

Another option is to use a third-party app like File Manager Plus for LG TVs. This app has more features than the built-in file manager, including browsing and installing APK files from external storage.

Finally, you can also use an Android TV device to install APK files on your LG Smart TV. This method is generally more convenient than a computer or phone, but it may require some technical knowledge (e.g., knowing how to transfer files between an Android device and your TV).


If you own an LG TV and want to install Android applications from USB, follow these simple steps.

  1. Connect your LG TV to your computer using an HDMI cable. 
  2. Open the “USB Device” window on your computer and locate the “Android ADB Interface” folder. 
  3. Drag and drop the APK file you want to install into the “Android ADB Interface” folder. 
  4. Double-click on the APK file to install it on your TV.

If you have an LG Smart TV, you can install apps (not pre-installed by the manufacturer) from a USB drive. This is useful if you want to add your app store or if the app store pre-installed on your Smart TV is unavailable in your country.
