Android TV Playstore

Hey there,
I tried to publish my app inventor app in Play Store for Android TV. I tried via Sideload first and it worked well. Anyway google wrote:
Your app has not been accepted into Android TV. This does not affect your app’s status on Google Play.
Your app manifest does not set an intent type of ACTION_MAIN with category CATEGORY_LEANBACK_LAUNCHER. Please see Get started with TV apps to learn more.

Any idea how to solve this?

You will need to edit the Manifest. Is your App uploaded to Play Store as an AAB or APK?

I uploaded as AAB.

Here is a guide (For Appzard, similar to App Inventor)

That has some useful advice but it does not cover the modifications needed to the Manifest.

... and this is what to add to the manifest (note the section about media too)

Thx for your tutorial.

I'm not sure yet if I want to go through such an effort to please google....

I also found this:

It's all hail Google if we want to have our Apps on Android TVs :upside_down_face:

Dose your app use GPS

I found a correlation with. Location ,maps components

I had an app available on Google Play. Till I added location.
To convert. A text adress to lats and long

It's about Android TV expecting certain launcher code in the manifest and a specific type of icon.
