Android TV Emulater is Blank. How can I see apps like Google Play Store and others?

I have started new Android TV Emulator. But it shows nothing except settings and search icon. I am unable to open even Google Play to add more apps.

Answer

Google Play is not included in emulator images (whether for TV or other devices) - the emulators only contain Android apps, not any of the Google apps.

(Whilst Android may be a free OS, what you receive on your actual phone is not - many of the key parts of that package are provided by Google, and are proprietary).

You can install your app to the TV emulator by using ADB.
