Roku added a small, yet significant, addition to its app for iOS on Thursday. With the new 2.3 update, users can now stream videos stored on their iOS device directly to their televisions.
The new functionality is part of an update to the "Play on Roku" feature that the company announced last September. "Play on Roku" lets users stream music and photos stored on a phone or tablet via a Roku device to a television. Basically, it's Roku's answer to the Apple TV's AirPlay. "Play on Roku" also works with Android.
Besides the new video feature, the Roku iOS app already lets users browse Roku channels, use an Apple mobile device as a remote control, and more.
