Last week Roku announced a new Voice Assistant as part of their new Roku Connect program, which will bring Roku to your smart soundbar and smart speaker.
The new whole-home entertainment licensing program will enable manufacturers to build soundbars and smart speakers, surround sound, and multiroom audio systems that use Roku Connect software to work together as a home entertainment network. This frees the manufacturers of the expensive development and maintenance that comes with the software side of hardware.
Yesterday Cord Cutters News got a first look at this new Roku Assistant during the TCL Press Conference with special guest Anthony Wood, Roku’s CEO.
Here is the video they showed:
