    So far "Your Vizio Tablet is up to date. No update is necessary."

    I haven't got the update either but Vizio's ota updates are always staggered so nothing unusual there. I wonder if this is the update Roger mentioned that the Vizio techs had that made it impossible to replicate the errors he and others were having with youtube videos.

    While I have not seen the update yet, from what people at Vizio have told me it might have fixed the ignored taps in the browser problem but neither of the level 4 techs at Vizio have tested the youtube application with a playlist. When I asked the weekday level 4 tech about it he basically told me he didn't care about that so that is all I know about fixes in the youtube application itself.

    Downloading update now. Wasn't available an hour ago. Rollout seems to be staggered by minutes not days.

    Is you tube now listed as a installed app in the play store?

    Just got my update and from what I can tell not much has changed. No youtube is not listed as an installed app in the play store.

    The update did not fix the browser youtube issues as far as I can tell based on the few tests I tried.

    Netflix does seem to be a tad sharper but netflix worked great before the update. But watching Adam 12 on netflix the video quality is better.

    The update did add font size and parental controls. This seems to be a minor update at best.

    Yeah, but it doesn't appear to affect applications?

    I am downloading the update right now. They sure do stagger the release.

    Not sure you could do this before the update but in the stock browsers settings you can change the font size.
