But it’s not just search that has been improved; Roku Voice now supports media playback controls, including commands like “pause”, “fast forward” and even “turn on closed captions" for those who need it.
The new update also includes integration with Alexa and Google Assistant, allowing you to automate Roku into your home ecosystem by controlling media playback and searching for shows and movies through your own device. Roku TV customers will have additional options, including turning the TV on/off and turning the volume up and down.
Other notable features of the update include quicker device boot and launch times, a redesigned mobile app with quick access and shortcuts to features and an improved home screen overall. You can get your hands on this update throughout April on Roku Players and supported streaming players - though those with Roku TVs will have to wait a few more months. Roku have also announced a brand new streaming service - The Roku Channel.
