Continue Watching, Save List, and Bluetooth Private Listening are all new features on Roku
Roku users, prepare to discover some new features. According to Roku, the company’s latest free software update, version 11.5, will be available to Roku TVs and Roku streaming devices “in the coming months.” It adds a few new features while maintaining the company’s typical, app-based menus.
Continue Watching, which enables you to continue TV programs and movies where you left off in 11.5, might be the handiest feature. To begin, it supports HBO Max, Netflix, Paramount Plus, and The Roku Channel, with other streaming services to follow.
Most applications, including Netflix, HBO Max, and others, already provide comparable capability inside the apps, and Roku’s main rivals, Fire TV, Google TV, and Apple TV, all prominently display Continue Watching on their home pages. Roku’s version, on the other hand, is more difficult to spot since it’s hidden in the What to Watch area, one level down from Roku’s main home page.
