A new software update, carrying version number 188.8.131.52 (build 565189420), just popped up on Amazon’s source code notice page. The update is currently listed under the 2nd-gen Fire TV and the 2nd-gen Fire TV Stick. There is a very good chance this update will include the new revamped user interface that is expected to arrive by the end of the year. Amazon said the new interface would come to 2nd-gen devices first, so it makes sense this new software version is currently only listed under 2nd-gen devices. Fire TV 1 and Fire TV Stick 1 devices will get the new interface later this year.
I haven’t heard of anyone getting this new update yet, so I don’t know if it’s already rolling out. Be sure to comment below if you receive this update and let us know what has changed.
