You Can Now Control Your Roku With Your Apple Watch

Today Roku added their Roku app to the Apple Watch. Now you no longer need your remote to control your Roku Player or Roku TV. Instead, you can use your Apple Watch as your Roku Remote.

Here are the features you will find with the Roku app on the Apple Watch:

  • Remote – Control your Roku device directly from Apple Watch. It’s the same easy to use remote from the mobile app – just sized for your wrist!
  • Launch channels – Quickly launch channels on your TV with one tap of the watch screen. Channels are listed in order of most recently launched for your convenience.
  • Voice Search** – Simply tap the voice icon in the app and say commands like “Launch Hulu,” “search for comedies,” “switch to HDMI 1” for your Roku TV, and much more. Available on select Roku devices and Roku TV models.
  • Remote finder – Lost your remote again? Use the Roku app for Apple Watch to signal your Roku remote and it will play an audible chime so you can find it in the couch cushions. Available on the Roku Ultra and select Roku TV models.
