Each Android TV box has its own specific set of software, called the firmware. Like any piece of technology, it’s important to keep it updated. Android TV boxes usually come with the latest firmware versions that are available. The trouble is, that firmware can become out of date as fast as you can say “Google Update.”

Firmware is what is needed in most electronic devices today. But what is it exactly and what makes it so crucial for products to run smoothly?

For starters, firmware is essentially the programming needed for certain devices to perform their designed tasks.

Unlike software, we don’t use firmware to perform specific activities on devices, but instead use it for their main functions.

Because of this, firmware updates are occasionally needed to make sure the device operates the way it should, as bugs are fixed and programs are altered for consumer benefits.

Before downloading any firmware updates, verify the firmware you are downloading is appropriate for the specific model number of your product.
