With Fugo’s player app for Android, you can use a wide range of Android devices to run your digital signage: media boxes, Smart TVs, and tablets.
If you don’t have a smart Android TV, Android boxes come in a range of prices and capability and mostly offer you a great bang for your buck - allowing you to run Android OS on any standard TV screen, effectively transforming it from “dumb” to smart.
This guide will walk you through how to install Fugo on an Android device, set up a Fugo account, and publish your content.
Let’s get started!
1. Connect your player to your screen & internet
1.1 Connect your Android box to your TV screen via HDMI cable.
1.2 Turn on your device and connect your box to a WiFi or Ethernet network.
2. Install the Fugo player app from the Google Play store
2.1 Open the Google Play store from the home screen of your TV by clicking Apps
2.2 Click Get More Apps to explore the Google Play apps
2.3 Search for “Fugo Digital Signage Player”
2.4 Install our app onto your device.
2.5 Click Open to launch the Fugo app on your screen.
2.6 Launching the app will automatically generate a PIN. We’ll cover where to enter this PIN in the next section.
3. Pair your player to Fugo CMS
3.1 If you have not already registered on Fugo CMS, go to http://fugo.ai/app to start your 14-day free trial.
3.2 After successfully logging in, you can click Add Screens on the welcome page. Alternatively, you can navigate to the Screens page in the top navigation bar.
3.3 Enter the PIN from the Fugo player window into the space provided.
3.4 To finish the pairing process, give your screen a name and add a location.
💡 We recommend you name your player something relevant such as 68 Lombard Street or Clapham Coffee Shop. For my example, I’ve named my screen “Fugo HQ.” The address should be your screen’s location.
3.5 Your screen will now be listed on your Screens page:
4. Publish content with Fugo CMS
With your player all set up, you’re ready to give it something to play!
Fugo allows you to display several types of content:
4K & HTML 5 content
3rd party integrations from our app store
TV dashboards like Looker, Tableau, Power BI + more
When your content is ready to go on screen, you can use our friendly playlist builder to publish your content - learn how here.
