How to Clear App Cache on Firestick



Clear Cache on Firestick

Amazon Firestick is a popular streaming device that lets you download more than 15000+ apps from the Amazon App Store. All the apps on your Amazon Firestick store cache data on your device to run smoothly and to make the user experience faster. Sometimes, excessive cache data on the app makes the application perform slower and also leads to insufficient storage space on your Firestick. To avoid these problems, you need to frequently clear the cache of all apps on your Firestick. You can easily clear the app cache on your Firestick in the Applications section.
