New software updates for the Fire TV and Fire TV Stick have started making their way out to devices. As always, these updates are rolling out slowly to select devices first before they make their way out to all FIre TVs and Fire TV Sticks. The Fire TV is receiving software version 188.8.131.52_user_516012020, while the Fire TV Stick is receiving software version 184.108.40.206_user_123067020. No word yet on what these software updates have in store. With any luck, they’ll fix the blank screen issue some users have been experiencing. We may also see the remaining Stagefright vulnerability patched. This update might be the one to unlock the upcoming shopping feature that first made an appearance in the software’s source code 4 updates ago, but has yet to be made available to customers. Hold tight for my update overview once I get a chance to dissect these new software versions.
