The $30 Roku remote includes a feature for finding the device if it ever gets lost, an audio jack for private listening, and customizable shortcuts.
A spokesperson for the company said “we are always working to bring the best products and our features to Roku users, part of that process is publicly testing new ideas with a small set of our customers”
There’s no word yet on when the company plans to release the voice remote pro to the public. The 19th of February appears to have been only applicable to those involved in the early access program.
