Android TV: What is Fast Boot and do I need it?

What is Fast Boot?

Fast Boot allows the TV to boot up the Operating System and startup software almost instantly. This allows the user to skip through the usual start-up process that takes about 2-5 minutes and power up the TV within a few seconds. By enabling fast boot, when the user shuts down the TV, it will be put into standby mode instead of a complete power down.  

We will still recommend the user to completely power down the TV at least once a week to allow the TV to clear off any running apps and release memory from the RAM (Random Access Memory).

On the Home page, navigate to and click on Settings ( icon on the top right of the page)



Once Fast Boot has been enabled, each time the TV is powered off, it will enter Standby mode instead of a complete power down. To completely power down the TV when Fast Boot is enabled, long-press the Power button on the remote control and select Yes.

Do note that due to Google's power-saving feature, the TV will shut down completely after being left idle for 4 hours on standby mode.
