Android TV devices started sending strange notifications to smartphones. But Google has already fixed everything.

According to sources, recently devices with Android TV began to behave strangely. They send notifications with the message “Streaming over Wi-Fi” to paired smartphones. More specifically, the notifications are not sent by the devices themselves, but by native applications like Disney +, Emby, Kodi, Netflix, Plex, Pluto TV, Tidal, YouTube and YouTube TV.

The problem mainly concerns the Nvidia Shield TV set-top boxes, but it also appears on other devices: televisions and multimedia adapters. Google has already responded to these stories, assuring that this is not a consequence of hacking a home Wi-Fi network, but just an internal error. The company has already fixed it, so users who encounter a problem have to wait for the update to be released.
