  • Play your video from select Android devices to your Roku player. Supported models include: Samsung Galaxy SIII, Samsung Galaxy S4, Nexus 4, HTC One, and Nexus 7 (2012 model). Video playback requires Android 4.0 or later.
  • Bug Fixes.
  • Stability Improvements.

As with iOS, your Android device needs to be paired with a Roku player running software version 5.1 or higher. Roku recommends using a WiFi router that supports 802.11N for best results.
