THX Tune-Up app arrives to Android, just in time for the Super Bowl

by: Andrew GrushJanuary 28, 2014


Just in time for Super Bowl XLVIII, THX Tune-Up has arrived to Google Play, free from now until February 3rd. After the promo ends, the app will be available for $1.99.

For those that have never heard of THX Tune-Up, the app was previously exclusive to iOS and is designed to help you maximize your home theater experience. Specifically the app uses your phone and its sensors to test video and audio quality.

So how does it optimize your living room experience? In short, THX Tune-Up gives you tips and step-by-step instructions that allow you to ensure the best possible settings in terms of brightness, aspect ratio, color and more. In the audio department, the app will also make sure that your audio settings and speakers are set correctly.

Unfortunately, THX Tune-Up doesn’t work with all Android devices. The app requires Android 4.2.2 and one of the following phones or tablets:

  • HTC One
  • HTC One Max
  • HTC One X
  • HTC One X+
  • Nexus 4
  • Nexus 5
  • Nexus 7 (2013)
  • Nexus 10
  • Samsung Galaxy S4
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 3

To grab the full app for free you’ll want to head on over to Google Play. Anyone try this one out yet? If so, let us know what you think!

    It only works with those devices? That sucks. Hope they add more in the future.

    He said “tit”. I had to point that out.

    • wezi427

      Seriously someone voted that down. People have no sense of humor. Maybe they should fill out a hurt feelings report.

    I was hoping to download it thinking maybe they will add support for my phone eventually. I was denied. :-(

    GP states that it works for G2 as well. Not my Moto Xoom though

  • David J

    It’s compatible with my TF101. But not my GS3 :(

  • Scott Breitbach

    Oddly enough, Play store says it’s ‘compatible’ with my B&N Nook Color running CM 10.1 (Android 4.2.2), so why not my 2012 N7? :/

    Yup, the G2 is supported but you need the slimport adapter. Too bad it doesn’t work over Wi-Fi or Miracast.
