Roku update

Updated May 1, 2018: Roku OS 8.1 landed on May 1. It brings with it the ability for private listening with up to four devices. And our friends in the UK will now have access to enhanced voice search, so they can search for their favorite shows and actors and other information right through the Roku remote, which is cool.

Your Roku will update itself automatically when the system is asleep. (As in not being used, and it'll only check once a day.) Or if you want, you can choose to check for the update on your own. Here's how do update your Roku manually:

  1. From the main menu, choose "Settings."
  2. Now go to "System."
  3. Now choose "System update."
  4. You'll now be on the system update page. Choose "Check now" and hit "OK" on your remote control.
  5. Roku will check for an update and let you know if one is available.

This is also a handy way to refresh things if you add a new channel to your Roku account from the Roku website. Just refresh manually, and the new channel that you added should appear immediately.
