It depends on what type of smart TV you are talking about but yes, on thing it does is bring smart features to a traditionally non smart TV.
It also brings Android OS features to smart TVs that don't have Android OS on then and as such might be limited to the apps you can install on them.

It's also portable.

Hi,
During initial setup I didn't get volume control set up. Is it possible to do now without having to reset the Firestick please?
Thanks,
Pa

Go to settings and equipment control. You can set up TV and/or audio setup there

Is anybody else having problems with All4? I've uninstalled and reinstalled and all I'm getting is that the programme is not available in my location or something along those lines. TIA

Im sure the details on how to install the play store are on the Troypoint website but in any event a quick online search throws up lots of details

is there any way to get prime video working with an Irish amazon account? I tried loading the app from Aptoide as suggested further up the thread but it wouldn't install as there's already a prime video app on the stick, but that's tied to the dummy UK account I have the stick registered to (so I can download the iPlayer etc). The prime account is on my wife's email, I'd rather not re-register the stick entirely.
