A recent bug has caused a number of Android devices to crash due to a new app that enables users to stream YouTube videos from FireSticks remote apps.
Google’s Firestick remote apps for Android and iOS allow users to access their FireStick remote devices via an Android or iOS smartphone app and connect them to their Android or iPhone via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.
Users of the Firestick app can then share videos from their Firesticks with others using the FireStix Remote app on iOS and Android devices.
However, a recent bug that affected the Firesticks video-sharing app has caused the Fire Stick app to crash on Android devices that are running the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system.
Google confirmed the issue in a tweet to The Verge and said it is working to fix the issue as quickly as possible.
Users can access their Android and iPhone FireStitches remote devices by navigating to the Fire Stix Remote App from the Android or Apple Store.
FireStix and FireStitch Remote app users can also share videos directly from the Firestix Remote’s home screen.
Users can access the Fire and Stitch remote apps by navigating the Home Screen and tapping the video player icon in the bottom left corner of the app.
