On My Samsung Smart TV, Where Is the App Store?

The home screen of your TV, also known as the Smart Hub, houses the Samsung app store. It’s incorporated right into the Smart Hub’s Apps area, so you’ll be able to see the apps you already have installed and any new ones you haven’t downloaded yet.

The term installed will appear directly beneath the name of an app if it has already been installed and is ready for use. If there isn’t an installed option next to the name of an app, you can choose it to add to your TV.

In the Apps section of the Smart Hub, you can manually scroll through all of the available apps. If a new app appears on the screen when you first open the Apps area, it is the quickest way to open it. The best approach to finding an app if you don’t see it is to utilize the search feature.

The location of the app store on a Samsung Smart TV is as follows:

  • On your remote, press the Home button.
  • Choose APPS.
  • You are currently at the Smart Hub’s Apps area, which serves as the Samsung app store.
  • When you find an app you want, click it, and then on the following screen, click Install.
  • If the app you’re looking for isn’t listed, click the search button (a magnifying glass) and type its name.
