It’s been only 3 weeks since the Fire TV and Fire TV Stick began receiving the previous software update, but that isn’t stopping Amazon from pushing out yet another update. The new updates, that just started making their way to devices, carry version numbers 126.96.36.199_user_516010220 for the Fire TV and version number 188.8.131.52_user_121065320 for the Fire TV Stick. Oddly enough, Amazon has already updated their software page to list the new version. They usually don’t update the software page until the majority of device have received the new software version.
Amazon says this new update contains “minor bug fixes and performance improvement.” Since it’s coming so soon after the last update, I don’t expect it to contain many changes. Perhaps Amazon needed this update to do some last minute fine tuning of the upcoming shopping feature before remotely activating it. I’ll have a full overview of this update, just like I did for the previous version, shortly.
