It has been just over a week since the Fire TV version 126.96.36.199_user_516010220 and Fire TV Stick version 188.8.131.52_user_121065320 software updates started rolling out to devices. Amazon’s official listing for these updates says they contain “minor bug fixes and performance improvements.” I’ve had a chance to dig through the source code and can confirm that there are no new features or visual changes brought on by these two updates. There’s no way to know what exactly was fixed or improved, but it appears the app which handles Amazon Instant Video playback has received a lot of attention with this update. The unreleased shopping feature has also been worked on quite a bit, which is expected since Amazon is probably close to announcing the new feature.
