It looks like the relationship that brought the Apple TV app to Roku is getting even better for both companies. The Roku app will now be available on Apple watches. While users will not be able to watch content from the Roku channel on the tiny screen they will be able to use it for multiple features including finding the remote when it’s lost. Provided of course that the Apple watch still has juice on his battery. Check out the features below
- Remote – Control your Roku device directly from Apple Watch. It’s the same easy to use remote from the mobile app – just sized for your wrist!
- Launch channels – Quickly launch channels on your TV with one tap of the watch screen. Channels are listed in order of most recently launched for your convenience.
- Voice Search** – Simply tap the voice icon in the app and say commands like “Launch Hulu,” “search for comedies,” “switch to HDMI 1” for your Roku TV, and much more. Available on select Roku devices and Roku TV models.
- Remote finder – Lost your remote again? Use the Roku app for Apple Watch to signal your Roku remote and it will play an audible chime so you can find it in the couch cushions. Available on the Roku Ultra and select Roku TV models.
