|You can now control your Roku with an Amazon Echo|
After announcing support for Google Assistant last fall, Roku is today doing the same for Amazon's Alexa voice assistant. After installing the new Roku skill, you'll be able to control the company's streaming devices and Roku TVs with voice commands like “Alexa, open Hulu on Roku.”
You can launch apps, pause content, or search for something to watch with your voice. Roku TV owners can turn their TV on or off, adjust the volume, or change inputs using Alexa as well. You'll still need to mention “Roku” in each voice command instead of just “the TV,” however. If you've got an antenna hooked up to your Roku TV, you can also tune to specific channels.
