Devices with Android TV began sending strange alerts to smartphones

But Google has already fixed it.

According to sources, recently devices with Android TV have started behaving strangely. They send notifications with the message "Streaming over Wi-Fi" to paired smartphones. To be more precise, notifications are not sent by the devices themselves, but by native applications such as Disney +, Emby, Kodi, Netflix, Plex, Pluto TV, Tidal, YouTube and YouTube TV.

The problem mainly concerns Nvidia Shield TV set-top boxes, but also manifests itself on other devices: TVs and multimedia adapters. Google has already responded to these stories by assuring that this is not the result of a home Wi-Fi hack, but just an internal error. The company has already fixed it, so users who are facing the problem have to wait for the update.
