How to Update Apps on Firestick

Here's how to go about it: On your home screen, click on the settings button. From the list of available options, select, My Fire TV. Click on About. From the options displayed, select Check for Updates. Download the updates, if there are any.

If you own a Firestick, you know how often apps are updated. It’s important to keep your apps up to date for the best user experience. In this guide, we will show you how to update your Fire TV apps manually or automatically.

Firstly, let’s talk about how to update your apps manually. On the home screen, go across to the apps using the remote or go to recently used apps. Once you have found the app you want to update, let’s take YouTube as an example, press the three bars icon and hold it down for a few seconds. In the bottom right, you’ll see a “more info” option. Click on it, and it will load up the app’s page like when you downloaded it. If there’s an update available, it will show it here, and you can do the update.

Now, if you prefer your apps to update automatically, which is the preferred choice, you need to go to the settings icons, select the little Cog icon, go across to Applications, and select App Store. The setting you want to enable is automatic updates, and that’s it!

It’s always good to know how to access the application settings, just in case you have any problems. To access the application settings, go to “manage installed applications.” If you’re having problems with your apps crashing, you can force a stop, clear the cache or data. If the app still doesn’t work after that, uninstall it and reinstall it.

We hope this guide has helped you update your Fire TV apps manually or automatically. If you have any questions, feel free to leave them below.
