Two Ways to Get Apple TV's Beautiful Screensavers on Android TV and Google TV [Updated]

New tvOS 15 screensavers added

The new aerials feature beautiful shots of Patagonia, Yosemite National Park and the Grand Canyon. There are 4, 7 and 5 videos of each location, respectively.


Google's Android TV/Google TV is currently one of the best platforms to watch TV on, it boasts more than 5,000 apps catered for Android TV/Google TV.

After all, what good is an Operating System without great apps to use (ahem Microsoft)?

Amazon recently agreed with Google to feature their apps in the Android TV & Google TV Play Store and support Google Cast, they did this shortly after Google revoked their YouTube app from all Amazon Devices.

Android TV

Today I'm showcasing an app that I love - ever since Apple announced their new generation Apple TV's I've been in awe, not because of their TV and Movie Services but, their screensavers.

That's right, they have beautiful screensavers which shows footage from an aerial drone flying over cities all around the world. The latest screensavers from Apple shows the view of Countries from Space.

I have just added Apple's new undersea videos that are extremely beautiful to look at. You can preview Apple's screensavers.

Once you see the screensavers, you will want them.

Luckily the screensaver is available for Android TV & Google TV. I did try sideloading it to my 4k Fire TV Stick but, it failed to override Amazon's screensaver.

Aerial Dream

Daniel Cachapa has figured out that Apple has essentially made these videos freely available on the Internet, so he decided to package an app that will make use of Apple's oversight.

I for one am glad he did this, now you can enjoy Apple's screensavers on any Android TV/Google TV Device, this includes Sony's latest TV's with Android TV/Google TV built-in, the Nexus Player, Xiaomi Mi Box S and Nvidia Shield TV.

An alternative to Aerial Dream

The Aerial Dream app isn't the only way to enjoy Apple's beautiful screensavers on your Android TV/Google TV. You may prefer not to have Aerial Dream taking up your precious bandwidth whilst streaming Apple's high-quality videos.

You can preview and download the videos you want from the tables below, then use an app called Photo Gallery and screensaver to turn the Videos into a screensaver.

You will have to store the videos somewhere, which could take up a lot of space depending on the quality of the videos.

I recommend using a USB drive or a map a network share if you have an Nvidia Shield.

This alternative doesn't seem to work with HDR videos. I'm hoping the developer can add HDR support in the future.

Photo Gallery and screensaver

Browse your photos and videos easily, offering a great way to view and share albums on your big screen. Please note that this app is optimised for the TV and will not navigate nicely on a touch device!
