Recently Used Apps row returns to all Fire TVs — Amazon says its removal was caused by an issue that has been fixed

Earlier this week, Fire TV users began noticing that the “Recently Used Apps” row had been removed from their Fire TV home screen. Amazon has just informed me that the removal was not intentional and was caused by a “temporary issue” that affected Fire TV customers in North America. I’m told that the issue has now been fixed and that those who saw the “Recently Used Apps” go missing should now see it restored to their home screens.

      Unlikely since it only affected a few devices. Also, the last thing they want to do is make their devices less useful because that would result in less data.

    They have also removed the sync recent content option in the preferences menu in settings.

    Some weeks ago “recently watching” in menu shows third party content when “sync recent content” privacy option is turned off, like disney and netflix, but now “recently watching” menu option is gone and the new “continue watching” option only shows prime content.
