Twitch App Is Back On Roku, But In A Different Way!

Roku has brought back a popular app, which went missing for past many weeks. Twitch app is the name of the app and it is being widely used by Roku users. The app basically belongs to the Amazon, and it is up to Amazon as to what needs to be done with the app. There is some information regarding the Twitch app turning into Twitched Roku channel, but it is not sure. Let us find out what this whole scenario is and how will it benefit Roku users.

Tech Helperz

A few days ago, one news broke out in which it was mentioned that Amazon will no longer provide Twitch app support to Roku. So, those using Roku devices will not be able to access this app in the same way as they used to. There are certain changes that this app will undergo and it is only after those changes that people will be able to use the application.

But, people who have installed Twitch app don’t have to remove the app because there is one way of watching contents from Twitch app without having to remove it. Amazon has removed the twitch app from Roku Channel Store (A channel store is basically a place where all the channels that you have installed are present; popular channels include Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, VUDU, HBO GO, Hulu & YouTube). The reason for removing the app is the transformation of the app into a Roku channel. This will allow Roku users to access more features on the same application.

Amazon has decided to remove the support for Twitch app and instead, give back the twitch app to Roku player with a unique category i.e., Twitched Roku Channel. All credit for this transformation goes to Rolando Islas (Developer).

What Is Actually Twitched Roku Channel?

Twitched is an unofficial video player for the Twitch streaming service. Roku users can watch top streams, search or browse followed streams.Twitch is a channel in which they can review the games that they love. The developers working on Twitch app also promised that are there are many more features in the pipeline such as chat capability, managing channels that are followed by users on Roku platform and a much awaited ‘video-on-demand’ feature.

Twitched have a long list of features including the ability to sign into your Twitch account to find your favorite channels. If you are facing any issues while signup on your Twitch account or Roku Channel Store, you can get in touch with Roku help and support providers and get the most reliable solution for the issues.

Now, Twitch app comes to Roku with an official channel in Roku player. Back in the day, it was just an unofficial app. Now again, an unofficial application has made its way back into the Roku player for subscribers who don’t have any access to the official twitched app.

In August 2014, Amazon bought the very popular Twitch game-streaming service for $970 million. Amazon has been building a wide range of Twitch features into their platform in order to use it to market its Prime videos and other intriguing features that are available on Amazon.

When this news reached out to Twitch and Amazon’s PR teams, both teams refuse to comment and said we don’t have much to say on this. So, the scenario is still not clear as to when this Twitch app is going to transform into a Roku channel and what features will it bring for the Roku users.

Voice Assistant and Smart Speakers from Roku Coming Out Soon.

TECHNICAL BULLS

Roku is a serious campaigner when it comes to adding new features. Roku never backs down from challenges because the company is aware of the fact that it is these challenges, which make the company better. Roku was doing well in its ‘content streaming’ space, but there has been news going on all around the internet, including social media that the company is in the process of making its own voice assistant.

Technical Bulls

Roku’s voice assistant, I mean ‘wow’, this company has the knack to surprise its customers. There wasn’t any need to come into this niche, but that’s Roku for you. With this voice assistant, Roku plans on competing with some of the industry’s well-established voice assistance services such as Amazon’s Alexa, Apple’s Siri, Microsoft’s Cortana and Google Assistant. So, what will Roku name its voice assistant, that’s the question in everybody’s mind? Well, let me kill the suspense by mentioning the magic word which will be used to get the tasks done using voice commands. The word that you will have to say is ‘Roku’ only. 
  • Who will get this ‘voice-assistant’ feature?

When Roku launches a feature into the market, it wants everybody to enjoy it, including those who have bought the company’s device a few years ago. This is what will happen now. All the streaming devices and smart TVs with a ‘Roku’ logo on them will have this voice assistant feature. There will be a software update, which will run automatically, thus resulting in the inclusion of this amazing feature. The official name of this voice assistant is ‘Roku Entertainment Assistant’, but there is no need to call such a big name, as only ‘Roku’ will also do the job. You just need to say, ‘Roku, play Eminem’s song from his latest album in the guest room’.
  • What’s more in the offing?

Roku is not stopping after creating a voice assistant, but it has got plans for the rest of your house as well. Roku’s voice assistant is going to be available in smart speakers as well, but it won’t be Roku who will be making the speakers. Roku has partnered with some of the top companies who manufacture speakers, audio systems, and soundbars, so Roku is going to make some arrangements in order to label their brand name on those gadgets. The first company that announced Roku branded device was TCL.
The operating system on which the audio gadgets would work will be provided by Roku. So, users will be able to connect to those audio gadgets wirelessly and perform a number of things such as syncing audio, etc. Moreover, it will be possible for users to control all the gadgets with a Roku remote and not to forget, voice commands. Till now, it is only confirmed that users will be able to control music and videos, but a lot more can be done with voice commands, it’s just that users don’t know about those things.
It is worth waiting for this feature because when it is going to appear on the market, it will become an instant hit. It already is because it’s been trending worldwide. Roku really knows how to capitalize at the right time because, with ‘voice assistant’ feature, Roku is definitely going to rock the world of digital and wireless streaming.

Issue 1: Roku is not playing all file formats

The formats that are played in Roku are MOV, MP4, MKV and WMV. Those who want to play 3GP files, it is not possible.
