Roku has announced that it is bringing its enhanced voice search feature to the UK. The new voice search is coming to Roku streaming players through the mobile app and to the Roku Streaming Stick+ via its remote control.
The company will release this new feature along with Roku OS 8.1 which will start to roll out from the 1st of May 2018.
Enhanced Voice Search allows for more natural language understanding and can search for movies, shows, actors and directors, or even launch streaming channels, in a more conversational tone. For example, a user can say things like, “show me comedies”, “find The Grand Tour” or “launch hayu.”
“We want to get our customers to the show they want to watch quickly,” said Lloyd Klarke, Director of Product Management at Roku. “Enhanced voice search makes it even easier for our users to find new movies and TV shows to watch.”
