Original story (published on April 14, 2021) follows:
Roku is a popular name among digital media player manufactures. It offers streaming players and TVs that run a custom Linux distro known as Roku OS.
Roku Inc. started way back in 2008 and has come a long way with its ninth generation of Streaming Players.
Now, Roku has released the Roku OS 10 update with a bunch of improvements and features for its supported devices.
Also, Roku’s Live TV Channel Guide is now easily customizable as per user requirements. All these enhancements make it easier for users to access their favorite content.
Moreover, the Roku OS 10 update simplifies the setup process with Automatic Wi-Fi detection, gaming console configuration, and Roku Voice for select on-screen keyboards.
Apart from that, the latest Roku OS update brings support for Virtual Surround sound and HDR10+ along with improved Roku Voice visual search results.
The said update is indeed a major one for supported devices as it enhances user experience with the aforementioned features and improvements.
While the official Roku OS software release notes page currently does not outline the list of Roku OS 10 supported devices, a Reddit user did manage to get the same.
As per the Reddit report, Roku OS 10 is expected to arrive on all Roku TV models whereas the list of supported Roku Streaming Player models is given below:
