Clearing of the cache and data often resolves issues with the application not communicating with Firestick correctly. Symptoms may be the application crashing, the username/password not working even though it’s being entered correctly, guide not loading, or other features not loading the way you would expect.
The following is a list of the Fire TV Sticks that Amazon has released is:
Fire TV Stick 1st generation – released in November 2014, discontinued
Fire TV Stick 2nd generation – released in November 2016, available
Fire TV Stick Basic Edition – released in November 2017, a special version of the 2nd generation Fire TV Stick available for non-US customers only, available
Fire TV Stick 4K – released October 2018, available
The easiest way to differentiate between different models is by looking at the size of the device and the remote control.
The 1st generation Fire TV Stick is slightly shorter, more narrow, and has a basic remote.
The 2nd generation Fire TV Stick is slightly longer and wider and has a longer remote equipped with a microphone which allows voice searches.
The Fire TV Stick Basic Edition is the same size as the 2nd generation Fire TV Stick, but has the same basic remote as the 1st generation Fire TV Stick and does not have voice search support. This difference is so that it is compatible with international markets.
Fire TV Stick 4K is larger than all the previous generations and drops the word “Amazon” from the logo on the side of the device. It also has a new remote with volume controls, a power button and LED. The word “Amazon” is removed from the logo on this version.
