As far as streaming media players go, one of the most popular has got to be Roku as not only is it small, but it also has support for a number of popular streaming services including Netflix and Hulu. A new update to Roku’s iOS app now makes it possible for its users to beam content directly from their iOS device to the set-top-box, making it easier than ever to share content with others while watching TV.
The feature is part of an update to the app’s “Play on Roku” section which was announced nearly a year ago. The Play on Roku feature now allows its users to stream content, such as music and photos, directly to their Roku box directly from their iOS device, which of course includes the iPhone and iPad. That’s not all as video can also be streamed from your iOS device to the Roku box, although the company has yet to detail what videos formats will be supported.
The update is now available for those who own a Roku box as well as an iOS device and can be downloaded through the Apple App Store.
