Roku's Voice Assistant
Roku Announces Plans To Release Voice Assistant

Roku announced that it will launch a voice assistant by fall 2018 on Wednesday. Its third-party partners would build speakers and audio systems to connect to Roku Connect ecosystem.

The voice assistant, which will be released as a free software update, will enable Roku players and TVs to control various devices through simple voice commands. Roku outlined TCL, its third-party partner will reveal the first Roku voice assistant during the CES gadget show to be held in Las Vegas next week.

The streaming media company has not revealed what controls users can avail with new voice assistant. It plans to expand its licensing program and launch “Roku Entertainment Assistant”.

Roku began its licensing program with its TV operating system after announcement of its partnership with Hisense and TCL in 2014. Roku confirmed TCL’s devices will be the first to be equipped with Roku’s entertainment assistant. However, it did not mention any details about services it will provide ahead of CES gadget show.

Following inception of its licensing program, total eight TV brands began rolling out Roku TVs in the North American region. The company also highlighted Magnavox will become the ninth TV brand to sell Roku TVs.

Roku will also launch reference designs for soundbars and WiFi connected speakers. Moreover, it will release Roku Connect software to help manufacturers build devices that can connect to Roku’s TV systems.

Commenting on licensing OS and offering reference designs, Roku executive Mark Ely told The Verge that Roku’s strategy to license the platform has become “the fastest way to acquire active accounts,” as compared to attracting new customers by selling streaming media players.

  3. My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a number of websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform. I have heard good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  4. Things i have observed in terms of computer memory is always that there are requirements such as SDRAM, DDR and so forth, that must match up the requirements of the mother board. If the computer’s motherboard is rather current while there are no os issues, upgrading the ram literally will take under 1 hour. It’s on the list of easiest personal computer upgrade techniques one can imagine. Thanks for sharing your ideas.

  5. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God. They deny Jesus as their Messiah, and the Bible tells us this Jewish Messiah will be the counterfiet that will bring about a false peace, and ultimatley the great tribulation.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! God bless!
