You used to be able to install an alternative launcher on Fire TV Sticks. earlier. From now on this is no longer possible.
No more custom launchers for Fire TV Sticks!
There has always been an option to install a custom launcher on Fire TV Sticks. Amazon blocks everything with an update. It is understood that Amazon objects to the misuse and use of Fire TV products for other things. The update prevents the installation of third-party launchers.
With the latest Fire OS 5,6 and 7, an alternative launcher is no longer possible. So the latest devices from Amazon. Be it Fire TV Stick Lite, Fire TV Stick 4K, or Fire TV Cube. Amazon is very interested in continuing to display ads on the Fire TV Stick. With custom launchers, Amazon loses sales accordingly. Understandable reason for this update.
Have you ever used a custom launcher? Or are you like me the plug and play type. I’m a huge fan of streaming hardware and I think it’s totally fine for the manufacturer to announce too, of course. Also, Amazon Fire TV devices are very cheap and advertising hardly bothers me in my opinion. Write your opinion about it!
