You Can Now Control Your Roku Device with Your Apple Watch with New Roku Remote App

Jason Gurwin

With the latest version of the Roku App, you can now control your Roku Streaming Player from your wrist. To access the Roku Watch App, just update the Roku iOS App to version 6.1.3 and if you have Automatic Installs turned on, it will appear on your Apple Watch.

The Roku Apple Watch App is a fully featured remote which lets you control the Roku. You can also launch channels quickly and easily and even use voice search to launch apps or switch inputs on Roku TV. If you lose your physical remote, you can have it send an audible chime to find it.

  • 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.
