Or ditch the remote for the mobile app
Another problem with the physical remote is that navigating through content can get quite labor intensive. We strongly recommend downloading the Roku mobile app, as it offers a nifty keyboard for faster searches. You can also perform voice searches this way. Access the Search menu in the mobile app, select "Voice," and summon your entertainment preferences with the power of speech. There's a lot of other tricks the app can do, like...
Cast content from your smartphone
Many people think Chromecast is the only streamer out there that blesses users with the option of mirroring content from their smartphones onto an HDTV. This is a fallacy! Through the Play on Roku feature, anyone can stream music, video, and photos stored on their mobile device. Go to the pull-down menu in the mobile app and go nuts selecting files to cast. Hopefully your data plan can handle it.
