Streaming devices have opened the door towards a different kind of television and we should probably expect to see them more often in the future. One device of this kind is Roku, and right now it is one of the most popular ones as well. However, despite this fact, many users have this device without knowing about the various features that are available on it. We made a list with some clever Roku functions that you probably did not know about.
- Hotel and Dorm Connect
If you travel a lot and you want to watch anything you want in the hotel room, the Roku device is ideal. Until now, it was a bit difficult to use it in hotels since their Wi-Fi networks will make you sign in via a web browser. Luckily for you, this is no longer necessary because Roku OS 7.0 and higher versions come with the Hotel and Dorm Connect feature that will connect you quickly. You can also use this in your college dorm.
- Watch hundreds of movies for free
You already spent money on a Roku device so you might not feel like spending more money in order to find something to watch. However, Roku can help you even here. Not many people know, but this device also offers you a Roku Channel that is completely free. Install this channel from the channel store and you will be able to watch hundreds of movies.
- Customise your screensaver
You probably already know how to select a screensaver, and the Roku device comes with three different screensavers. Additionally, you can download more from the Channel Store.
But you probably did not know that you can create your very own screensaver if you use a 4K Roku device. Go to Settings> Mobile Screensaver and choose your own photos.
