Last year Amazon left the range of HDMI dongles pretty quiet putting on the market only a “Lite” version inspired by the models that landed in September 2019. Along with it, the Americans took the opportunity to wash their face to the user interface, that home screen that serves as a hub for their own and non-Prime Video content of the main streaming platforms on the market.
Now, although this modernization already began to be distributed globally in December 2020, The 4K model of those Fire TV Stick was left out of that process, to which they have just set a date to receive their new serving of updated menus adapted to the tastes of users. Changes that Google also had to undertake when it released its new Chromecasts with Google TV and remote control.

The main one, the possibility of adding different profiles to protect our activity, not only within the device, but also of all the other accounts that we have subscribed to streaming platforms.
And it is that these Fire TV Sitck, being installed in family televisions, can receive the visit of any of its members and need Disney +, Netflix, HBO, Prime Video or any other to keep historical data up to date of each series and chapter that we go through. At the end of the day, sections such as “continue watching” it is logical to think that they will be linked to a single user.
Another change that will come is the improved search, which It will not be as general as until now where games, applications and multimedia content appeared at the same time. Thanks to a system of cards, results will be displayed in a much more graphic way, with genres, so that we get to what we want to see much faster.
