Listen privately on mobile

Another great feature added to this new Roku is the ability to listen to your shows privately on mobile devices. This way, you can enjoy watching a show on your TV but use your mobile device’s audio. So you can have the volume as loud as you want to without disturbing others in your home.

It’s a pretty handy inclusion for those sharing space with family members or roommates. Sometimes it’s the little things that make a difference.

Use it with major voice assistants

Have a popular voice assistant you enjoy using? You’re in luck! The Roku 4K can be voice-controlled using Alexa, Siri, and Google Assistant. You can easily stream your content without even needing to reach for your remote by issuing a command via voice action. If you’ve got a sweet smart home setup going on, this is a great feature to have integrated with the service.
