They probably submitted an early build a while ago and set the release date to whatever day they want it to go live. That way they can just publish the update, which doesn't require the same level of approval, and it will go live without any delays from Google.

At least that's how a lot of folks do it with iTunes. I assume they use the same technique with Google Play.

Although the TiVo app is also on the Amazon Market, so they'll need to update it there too if they plan to support Kindle Fire devices for streaming. (The 2nd gen HD and HDX are running a new enough build of Android)

Good luck with Amazon being timely. Though I just rooted my two fives and put the Play store on them. Should be nice using my 8.9 HDX to stream tivo content. Love that screen.

Yeah, that's why I put it inside the quotes.

It just seemed so odd for them to do that. It seemed they were really saying

I believe the TiVo App specifically will look for rooted devices and refuse to work on them. They do this on iOS already. As to whether a root cloak will work, I guess we wait and see.

You got this to work? I put play services and the play store on my HD and it never really worked right. Most apps will copy over from my Android phone to my Kindle, but some won't.

[sarcasm] they should have waited and deployed a complete product! Android is too important to push only part of the service to market!!! [/sarcasm]

Wow!! I missed all of this yesterday. I had taken the day off and was too busy playing Forza Horizon 2 all day. I need to check things out when I get home tonight since I just downloaded the new TiVo app from the Play Store.

Perhaps someone willing should maintain a clean compatible/not-compatible list with input from others to insert some structure to the chaos. It doesn't sound like it's as simple as "4.1 and higher except for x86 devices" due to some devices apparently not working. (Not me, I don't have any android devices. )
