As you can see in the chart above, a number of streaming devices including the Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, Roku, and Apple TV have suffered an upgrade to the current software, which includes changes to the software that prevent apps from being used.

The most noticeable change is the loss of app functionality, which is not compatible with the iOS version of the software.
Users are experiencing slow speeds due to this change and are seeing degraded quality when streaming videos,” the company said in a statement to TechCrunch.
Apple declined to comment on this story.
As it stands, Spotify is still experiencing the same issues with speed as it has been with previous hardware updates, with some users reporting the streaming speeds dropping to as low as 1 Mbps.
Users on Twitter have also reported seeing significant drop-off in performance as well, which has caused the company to suspend the service temporarily.
Spotify’s support community is also experiencing issues with their own support site, with users reporting that Spotify’s support team is unable to help them with streaming issues, as well as problems with the streaming process itself.
Spotified has also stated that the issues are due to a firmware update, which may have caused the issues.
This is not the first time that Spotify has experienced issues with the software updates, as earlier this year, Spotify was forced to halt streaming for a number.
Earlier this year however, Spotify temporarily halted its streaming for at least three weeks due to an update that caused the service to temporarily stop working.
