Mecool KA2 NOW Amlogic S905X4 WebCam Social Media TV Box

Mecool KA2 NOW Review

When I received the Mecool KA2 NOW for review, I was quite excited seeing that the was built using the new Amlogic S905X4 chipset. What was even more exciting was that it came with a built-in WebCam on social media apps, and it ran on a fully Google certified Android 10 TV OS operating system. It also printed on the box that it has OK Google far field the voice technology, and it came with a Bluetooth Google assistant voice control remote.

No this would have been one of the times when I would have to pull out my whopping stick and have a go at Mecool when I discovered that despite having all these amazing features they blocked you from sideloading your personal APKs. However, after consulting with Mecool I learned that this unpopular move was necessary in order for them to produce a TV box with a built-in camera to attain full Google certification.

Google requires any android device with a built-in camera to have the required security features that will prevent unscrupulous persons from hacking into the device and accessing camera, whereby spying on you or even worse spying on children. So to prevent this Mecool had no choice but to block the sideloading of Apks that could see malicious apps installed on this device.

On the bright side the box is fully Google certified to play premium streaming services such as Amazon prime video, Disney plus, and sling TV. They still haven’t really acquired their Netflix certification clearance. Sorry I couldn’t place it on the ranking chart.
