How do I just open up the internet on my BRAVIA XBR55X850C?

How do I just open up the internet on my BRAVIA XBR55X850C?  Everything I type in the search box just pulls up youtube content. I’d like to go to Google.com. I’m more accustomed to Samsung that has the internet icon next to netflix, hulu and such. Sorry for the Noob question and thanks, James

Hi 480Ruger,

 

Welcome to Sony Community!

 

The Android™ TV does not have a pre-installed web browser app. However, you can download and install third-party apps that function as a web browser through the Google Play™ store.

Follow these steps to locate a browser app:

 

  1. Turn on the TV.
  2. Press the HOME button.
  3. Select Apps.
  4. Select the Google Play store app.

    Google Play Store

  5. In the search window, use web browser or browser to locate an app that will meet your needs.

    Browser search

IMPORTANT:

  • Sony does not guarantee the operation of third-party apps. Third-party apps that have been downloaded and installed from the Google Play store are supported by the company or developer who produced them.
  • Using a computer, tablet or smartphone, you can visit the Apps for Android TV website to check the Descriptionand Reviews before downloading and installing an app.

 

 

Thanks!

 

 

Jerome

Thank you.  It worked fine but I'm just not into this Android TV so I'm swapping back to Samsung.  Having to pay more to get the picture quality as good as the Sony.

I gave up trying.  I have google chrome installed but I can't get out of the keyboard to select the website.

Can't get a keyboard to enter a URL. OTHERS ARE CORRECT. Samsung is easy. Unfortunately we own 2 Sonys. Learned my lesson. No more Sony TVs.
