The New Flagship Set-Top Box: MAG500A with Android TV

MAG500A is an evolved MAG425A. Like its predecessor, MAG500A is a Google-certified device, a testament to the high quality of its software, hardware, and reliable operation. The vendor is committed to providing regular firmware and security updates for the device.

 

MAG500A Features

Android 9.0

MAG500A brings an upgrade to user experience with Android 9.0: Both the Bluetooth remote and voice assistant now work much better; the device now boasts system-wide auto frame rate; also, apps have been updated and the Settings UI refined. Users also get the benefit of built-in Google services, such as YouTube, YouTube Music, and Google Movies & TV, as well as personalized recommendations, a modern launcher, and access to Google Play Store's catalog of over 7,000 apps and games.

 

Google Assistant

The set-top box supports voice recognition. All you need to do to use the voice assistant is press a dedicated button on the remote and name the movie, ask for a weather forecast, or make a search query.
