This week Roku released a new app for Windows 10 users that gives them a wide range of apps and services including new ways to interact with your Roku.
Here are some of the highlights of the new Roku Windows 10 app:
REMOTE AND CONTROLS
You can now use your laptop or tablet to navigate a Roku device from your Windows 10 laptop or tablet. With the new Roku app, your channels are just one click away. In addition to the classic remote, you can also see your complete My Channels list to the app’s interface to help you quickly move from channel to channel, regardless of where you are in the Roku platform.
Roku Search on Windows 10 offers a quick and easy way to find the content you want. Simply start typing or saying the title of a television show, film, actor, or director, and Roku will begin collecting results for you. Again, the Roku app features Cortana integration so searching for content on Roku is never more than a “Hey Cortana” away!
PLAY ON ROKU
Now with Windows 10 you can show off your photos and music on the TV through your Roku device and let everyone share in your memories from your Windows 10 device. All you need to do is select your photos and music, one-by-one or by selecting a folder, to begin playing the content. Once the photos and music are playing, you’re in control of how long to stay on that amazing photo or how quickly you want to skip past those more embarrassing ones.
You can find the Roku app for Windows 10 by searching for Roku in the Windows search bar.
