Spotted by some folks over on Reddit, a new update is rolling out now to the UHD version of Walmart’s Android TV streamer. While this isn’t a major update, such as Android TV 12, it does deliver some goodies.
First and foremost, this update for Walmart’s Android TV device delivers the February 2022 security patch. That’s a bit out of date at this point, but it’s considerably newer than what’s on the Chromecast with Google TV, and most other Android/Google TV devices at this point in time. The last update delivered the January patch.
Walmart’s changelog, listed below, also mentions WPA3 support patches, as well as a fix for the HBO Max button on the remote, which apparently has not been working.
You can buy Walmart’s 4K streamer now from the retailer’s site for $19.88.
