Roku update includes something Google Chromecast, Apple TV, and Amazon Fire TV can’t match
ROKU has started to roll out a momentous new update for its streaming sticks and set-top boxes that includes a feature you won’t find on rival devices from Apple, Google, or Amazon.
Roku started to roll out an update to its popular streaming set-top boxes earlier this month, which added the ability to use Apple AirPlay 2 and HomeKit functionality. For those who don’t know, AirPlay is the equivalent of Google’s Cast functionality – it allows iPhone, Mac and iPad owners to beam video content, photos and games from their devices onto the big screen. It is also used in connected speakers to play tracks across multiple speakers, like Sonos and Apple’s own HomePod, for example.
