What do the lights at the bottom of the TV screen mean? (Google TV or Android TV)

    This article is specific to Android TV™ and Google TV™ models with Operational response in the menu.

    The LEDs can light up for various reasons.

    • A: LED for the Voice function: At the bottom left side of the TV (This is only for TVs with a built-in microphone)
    • B: LED / Status LED for the Operational response: At the bottom center of the TV

    (A) Built-in MIC LED (LED for voice function)

    Note: This is only for TVs with a built-in microphone

    • For 2021 models or later:
      • You can use the built-in MIC on the TV when the built-in MIC switch is On. For the location of the built-in MIC switch, refer to the Reference Guide supplied with the TV.
      • After you press the Google Assistant/MIC button on the remote control and finish activating the built-in MIC, the Voice function LED is lit with an amber light when the built-in MIC is Off. (When the built-in MIC is On, the Operational response LED is lit with an amber light).
      The LED turns on or blinks when the words Ok Google is detected, and the TV is communicating with the server. The lighting pattern of this LED changes depending on the server communication status.
    • For 2020 models: If "Ok Google" detection is enabled and then disabled, the LED lights up in amber while the TV is on. The LED turns off on standby.

    (B) Status LED for the Operational response

    • The LED turns on or blinks in white when the TV turns on, receives signals from the remote control, or updates the software from a USB storage device.
    • When the built-in MIC switch is On (only models with the built-in MIC switch) or "Ok Google" detection is enabled, the Operational response LED is lit with an amber light.
