Google has had to issue a fix for the 4K Chromecast dongle due to bugs and poor performance.

The fix labelled build number 200918.033 delivers an improved a much-awaited fix for a recovery screen issue which has been reported by thousands of users.

The issue has been highlighted by affected users on various platforms, including Twitter, Reddit, and even on Google’s own forums. It crops up randomly and renders the remote control useless, making it difficult for users to get around it.

The update is being rolled out in batches and therefore, it may take time to reach Australian users who will get the update when they log on.
