Home entertainment company Roku has announced the release of Roku OS 9.4, the latest version of its software. This update is mainly centered around Apple users, bringing support for AirPlay 2 and HomeKit for some Roku models, but it also has a few things to offer to everyone else, including the Live TV Channel Guide.
The most important part of this update for many Roku device owners will be the addition of support for AirPlay 2 and HomeKit – but you will only receive them if you have one of the supported devices:
– Roku Smart Soundbar
– Roku Ultra
– Roku Streambar
– Roku Streaming Stick+
– Roku Premiere
The company says support will be released for its 4K Roku TVs, ‘in the coming days’. Once arrived, Apple device owners will be able to easily stream content from their iPhone, iPad, or MacBook using AirPlay 2. O HomeKit support, however, brings Roku control to these Apple devices, in addition to the Apple Watch and HomePod speakers.
Not an Apple user? Roku OS 9.4 is also adding the aforementioned Live TV Channel Guide for its smart TV users, as well as a new surround level control for the multichannel audio experience, unspecified performance improvements, package updates. themes and new ‘useful tips’ relevant to Roku Voice.
