What’s new in Roku OS 11 for the Roku TV?
The audio features on your Roku device are about to get a lot better. You’ll be able to experience new sound profiles if you possess a Roku Streambar or speaker. Dialogue, Movie, Music, and Night are among the sound options available. All modes can be accessed with your Roku remote or the Roku app on your mobile device.
It’ll also be easier to sync music with whatever’s on-screen thanks to the app’s new A/V sync tool. Owners of Roku Streambars will no longer have to deal with out-of-sync audio, which is a significant win.
For us, the increased content discovery features are the true highlight of the Roku TV upgrade bundle. As part of the Roku OS 11 upgrade, if you possess a Roku TV or one of the finest Roku streaming sticks; you’ll have access to a fresh new ‘What to Watch’ menu.
What to Watch will go a long way if you are searching for a new movie or a new TV show. As the name suggests, the feature will recommend wide variety of content from various streaming services. It is worth mentioning that the search results won’t remain limited to a select few streamers.
Furthermore, the Roku is also expanding its Live TV zone. Now, it will offer suggestions based on what you have recently watched. Lastly, the company has also made changes with Roku Photo Streams features. The option now let users et photo albums and images from your uploaded content, as screensaver.
