Introducing Crashlytics for tvOS

by Jason St. Pierre, Product Manager

Last month at Flight, we opened beta access to our crash reporting for tvOS project at Crashlytics Labs. Since then we’ve received much positive feedback from many of you. Today, just a month after Flight, we’re thrilled to share that we’re officially releasing Crashlytics for tvOS!

The #1 Crash Reporting Solution Now on Apple TV

Our passion has always been to deliver the most powerful developer tools. With Crashlytics, we’re solving the biggest challenges in crash reporting for iOS and Android; but we didn’t stop there. Many of you are building apps for TV today, and we’re excited to support the next generation of experience you’re crafting for the living room, starting with Apple TV.

Our tvOS support gives you the same award-winning experience that you’ve come to expect from us, starting with prioritizing your most prevalent crashes down to giving you the exact line of code that caused your Apple TV app to crash. Just like on iOS, there’s no need to wait days for a crash report: we’ll notify you with what’s important in real time so you can fix crashes as they happen. On top of that, you’ll have total visibility into an issue’s life cycle for your Apple TV apps, with a complete picture of how an issue is affecting your builds.

Don’t take our word for it:

Our team is building the next generation of experiences for our users on devices like the Apple TV. The Crashlytics team has done it again. They've brought the same crash reporting tool that we love to Apple TV and it's going to be instrumental for us moving forward.

MobilityWare is excited about the upcoming launch of our Solitaire and Blackjack titles on Apple TV. Crashlytics was essential in creating a stable and bug free game. Their SDK quickly integrated into our games taking just minutes to replace the iOS version with the tvOS version. Awesome job!

Beyond tvOS: Enhanced Notifications for Beta on Android

While the foliage is in full form, we also spent November finding new ways to enhance the Crashlytics experience. We realize how important it is to get timely notifications to your users.

That’s why, on top of tvOS support, we’ve enhanced our notification functionality for your beta release process on Android. Now, your testers will be notified about your latest builds much faster, via push.
