Roku series players are amazing but with the new software upgrade to Roku 2 and Roku 3, the search feature has become so amazing that you might probably end up watching a lot of movies and shows than intended.
Over 1400 channels are being offered and the hardware specifications of Roku 2 has been bumped up as well. Roku 3 is now technically advanced because it supports voice controls and allows users to easily talk what they like to open apps, content or do more.
Responsive than Before
The biggest change that we saw with the new Roku 3 and Roku HDMI sticks is their responsiveness. The software update has made the devices much faster than they used to be. It was a pain to wait for the hardware to be ready before you could start playing your favorite content on it.
Now, it doesn’t take you that much time and you will be running your favorite television series within minutes from booting up the stick or device.
New Search Feature
The developers have also worked to make sure the search feature works as it should. You can now bookmark a movie as soon as it gets released and the Roku device will automatically notify you when it becomes available on a channel.
It’s comprehensive and can find the particular movie on any channel without you having to manually prompt anything. The search also allows you to find content based on director, actor, title and also find specific genre of games.
My Feeds is a new part of the device which makes this possible. It will bring you all the details you need including price, release date and channel information. You can choose to subscribe or purchase the particular content to watch it at a later time. There’s also a mobile app that lets users control their device, reports Pocket Lint.
