Bharti Airtel has a plethora of offerings under its portfolio. One of those offerings is the ‘Xstream Box’. For the unaware, the ‘Xstream Box’ is an Android Set-Top Box (STB) offered by Bharti Airtel to customers across India. It allows users to seamlessly stream over-the-top (OTT) content and access all the Google Play Store apps that are available for Smart TVs. Since it is an Android STB, it keeps getting updates from time to time. Much recently, the Xstream Box got a software update and it is being rolled out for users across the country.
Airtel Xstream Box Software Update
Airtel Xstream Box much very recently got a software update. After the update, the latest Application Version of the Android STB reflects 1.0.2920 (the same as before) and the Firmware Version reflects 2.3.0-21042717 (got updated from 2.2.4).
The company has made some changes to the User Interface (UI) of the Xstream Box. However, the Android Security Patch still remains of March 2021. Users of the Xstream Box said that after the update, they saw the Voice Assistant performing better than before. Even the sound options increased. Now users get to select whether they want to keep the Dolby sound system always on or change the mode.
One of the users noted that after the update, Voot and Disney+ Hotstar has been added to the recommended section of the application.
