New software update 6.2.1.3 released for the Amazon Fire TV 3

A new software update has been rolling out to the 3rd-generation Amazon Fire TV. This new update, which carries version number 6.2.1.3 and build number NS6213/1196, is the Fire TV 3 update that is equivalent to the latest update that rolled out to all other Fire TV models last month. This update changes the “Your Apps & Games” row on the Fire TV home screen to a “Your Apps & Channels” row. It does this because each Amazon Channel that you are subscribed to now has its icon that you can arrange among your app icons. Just like with all other Fire TV models, a Prime Video icon has also been added which loads a new interface listing content from Amazon Video. It doesn’t appear as thought his update makes any other changes. If you notice any other changes, be sure to mention them in the comments.
