This new Roku app is designed with the view to make search simpler and faster. You can easily find the contents you wish to watch without Roku remote. Now if your Roku remote not working, then there is no need to worry. All the playback controls and other menu are available on mobile app itself.
This app is fully compatible with all the Roku smart TV’s and streaming media players used by more than 12 million people on a routine basis. If we talk about the older version of this app, then it was having a simple interface with vertically embedded buttons for searching and remote control. The ‘Roku feed’, ‘channel store’ and ‘play on Roku’ option was not highlighted in this version. You might need to take help from www Roku com link, if you are using the older version of the mobile app.
Now, the company has changed the alignment of all the navigation buttons and moved them to the bottom of the app. they have followed the classical way to place the navigation buttons in an app. Now if you move from left to right on your app, then you will find the options like new section ‘what’s on’, remote, ‘photos’ section and finally app settings in the last.
When you open the app, you will find a list of installed channels on the screen. You can tap on any channel you want to watch contents from. The remote will suddenly get displayed on the mobile screen, with which you can navigate to movies or show section.
‘My feed’ section is now replaced with ‘what’s on’ section. These sections can be only accessible if you have proper internet connection on your smart mobile. If your Roku not connecting with the mobile, then check the network connection of home Wi-Fi network.
Earlier ‘my feed’ section allowed the users to track their favorite TV episodes and movies. When any new programs were available, then you would be alerted via a notification on the Roku feed screen. Information related to upcoming movies and programs were also available on the screen. The main aim behind this was to make search simpler and user-friendly so that contents can be watched easily.
Now with ‘what’s on’ section, you can get information about the best entertainment channels available to watch for free. All the contents are grouped according to the theme like horror, kids, free, deals and much more. Apart from this, ‘Roku feed’ section is also available at the bottom of this page.
TV programs and other shows that you are presently watching keep on updating automatically in ‘Roku feed’ section, but this is not the case in what’s on the section. You will get the list of best entertainment channels in front of the screen and it will act as a starting point for streaming the contents online.
Roku has totally changed the mobile remote and it is now analogous to the real world remote button layout. You can now easily use your mobile remote with a single hand as buttons and directional pad is now closed to each other. If you want to move from one channel to another, then simply click on channel icon at the top of the screen. If you are having any problem in watching the contents over TV or getting HDCP unauthorized Roku message on screen then check the HDMI connection properly and play the contents again.
