If you don’t, the Play Store will update Kodi to version 19 which is not compatible with the most popular Kodi add-ons in our programming. Click here to see how to turn off auto-updates.

On some tv boxes, the Play Store opens with a search bar at the top of the page that says, Google Play Store. Do not type Chrome here. This is only for searching for content (not apps) on the Play Store and will not bring up the Chrome app you are looking for.

What you need to do is click the category “Apps” found near the top of the page. That will bring up the Apps category. On some Play Store versions, you have to click the magnifying glass to make the search bar appear. On other versions, it’s automatically there with the magnifying glass at the end of the bar. And on other versions, you can just type into the search bar. Photos showing the various versions of the Play Store and where to click are below.

Type in Chrome into the search bar.

Click on the first Chrome icon pictured (Google Chrome: Fast & Secure).

Click Install or Update.

Click Accept. The download will begin.

When it’s done installing/updating, click Open. Now you can use Chrome.

The first time you open Chrome, you may have to go through some permissions. Click Accept & Continue to any permissions.
