Roku Embracing Voice Assistant Technology
« on: January 03, 2018, 04:14:47 PM »
Roku who just last year was advertising for AI Voice assistant programmers announced they are now jumping into this new and important technology. As all the devices in our homes become smarter, controlling them from your voice will be an important aspect and something that media streamers like Roku must embrace.

Nvidia SHIELD has already implemented this technology and a SHIELD TV box can now serve as the hub or brain center for most of your smart AI (Artificially Intellgent) enabled devices.

Check out this list of smart devices that already work with the Nvidia SHIELD

Amazon Fire TV devices already have their own Voice assistants and work with Alexa. Roku not wanting to be left behind, have also put valuable resources towards Voice Assistant technology. This only makes sense as so many of their devices already come with a microphone built into the remote and they already have limited voice command capabilities in their newer media players. Roku also controls a large segment of media streamers and smart televisions market found in many homes today.

Roku also announced they are working on a new type of sound technology with a device that will take the sound from your TV or sound-bar and be able to direct it anywhere in your home.

We are not yet sure if this new enhanced voice technology will have the same functionality as Amazon's Alexa or the SHIELD which uses Google's AI Google Voice. Or if  their AI will be able to control everything in your home or give you the latest score or current weather conditions outside.

Initially, it will be offered as software to partners to implement in speakers, sound-bars and televisions and as a software update to existing voice capable Roku devices as they implement new features to expand their capabilities. It is expected to be more widely available this next fall.

One thing is certain, the smart home market is here to stay and will only continue to grow much larger in the next few years as this technology continues to mature.
