Roku adds wireless photo, music sharing to TV

Michelle Clancy | 21-09-2012

Roku has added a 'Play on Roku' feature to its mobile app, which allows customers to stream photos and music from a mobile device wirelessly to a Roku streaming player.

Photos streamed on TV using Play on Roku can be viewed individually using a swiping gesture on the mobile device, or in automatic slide show mode. When music is streamed using Play on Roku, a screen saver with the song title, artist, album name and cover art will appear on the TV while the song plays. Photo slide shows can also be viewed with music streaming at the same time. Play on Roku is compatible with MP3 and M4A audio files and JPG and PNG image files.
"For most people, mobile devices are an extension of their lifestyle they use their smartphones and tablets for almost everything, including capturing photos and curating music," said Jim Funk, senior vice president of product management at Roku. "With this in mind, we wanted to provide a mobile experience that gave customers different ways to enjoy their photos and music, while getting even more value out of their Roku players."
The Roku mobile app essentially turns a smartphone or tablet into a remote control. Usres can assign names to Roku players, instantly replay favourite movie moments, quickly add and remove channels, and control and switch between multiple Roku players
Available for iOS and Android mobile devices, the Roku mobile app can be downloaded for free from the iTunes App Store or Google Play. Play on Roku works with all over-the-top (OTT) options from the company: Roku 2, Roku LT and Roku HD players today and will work with the Roku Streaming Stick, expected to ship in October.
