Sometimes tech, however advanced, fails to work as it should. Your latest iPhone or Samsung smartphone may freeze or behave abnormally when an installed app is misbehaving. In such cases, you may opt to disable or uninstall the faulty app. Smart TVs are not immune to apps not working properly either. What you might not know is that you can force close “bad” apps on your Android TV, just like you would on a smartphone.
Other times you may have opened many apps and you don’t want them running in the background. This is because they will be feasting on your valuable scarce hardware resources. Too many background apps will cause your system to be slow, laggy, and unresponsive. Of course, you don’t want that.
How many background apps are too many, you ask? Well, it depends on how “heavy” the app is. For instance, having a single gaming app running in the background can be a lot. On the other hand, having a VPN app and a radio streaming app running in the background is okay in my book.
force closing apps can be a simple first-aid solution to many issues on your Android TV or Google TV. So, how do you do it? Well, the procedure to force close apps will be quite similar for most Android TV devices if not all. This includes set-top boxes, smart TVs, and TV sticks running on the Android TV platform.

These are very quick fixes for misbehaving apps, but if the problem persists you may want to take it up a step further by restarting the entire device.
