A new software update is currently rolling out to all Amazon Fire TV models and Fire Stick models. The Fire TV Cube and Fire TV Edition televisions don’t appear to be receiving this update. The Fire TV 3 (pendant is being updated to version 188.8.131.52 with a build value of NS6253/1441, while all 1st and 2nd generation Fire TVs and Fire TV Sticks are being updated to version 184.108.40.206 with a build value of 617513220. This update appears to be tiny and minor, so it likely fixes some specific bug that was recently discovered. Many Fire TVs have not yet received the last 220.127.116.11 software release. It’s possible that this latest update fixes an issue that forced Amazon to halt the rollout of the last update. It’s difficult to know what is fixed or changed, so if you notice anything different after receiving this update, be sure to let everyone know in the comments below.
Correction: 1st-gen Element and Westinghouse Fire TV Edition televisions are receiving the 18.104.22.168 (617513220) update as well.
