Roku has begun the rollout of new operating system to devices including streaming players, audio products and Roku TV models.
Roku OS 10 includes a variety of new features designed to allow users to access content faster.
“The Roku OS adds new choices, more value and continues to make streaming easier and easier with each free update,” said Ilya Asnis, senior vice president of Roku OS at Roku. “With Roku OS 10, we are enabling people to get to the content they love faster through features like Instant Resume and the Live TV Channel Guide customization options, and taking the guesswork out of the more complex wireless network and gaming features by automating them.”
The new Instant Resume is designed to speed the time it takes to start up a channel once more. Its being brought in on a number of channels available in the United States.
The automatic network detection feature notifies Roku users of the optimal wireless network band to connect to in their homes so they can enjoy the best possible streaming experience.
Roku has also added support for AirPlay 2 and HomeKit support to more devices.
Roku OS 10 has begun rolling out to select Roku players and is expected to roll out to all supported streaming players, including the all-new Roku Express 4K+ and Roku Streambar Pro, and all Roku TV models in the coming weeks.
