How do I update my Roku?

Answered by Stephen Mosley

To update your Roku device, you can follow these simple steps:

1. Start by pressing the Home button on your Roku remote. This will take you to the Roku home screen.

2. Once you are on the home screen, scroll up or down using the arrow buttons on your remote and select the “Settings” option. It is usually located on the left-hand side of the screen.

3. After selecting “Settings,” you will be taken to the Roku settings menu. Here, you will find various options related to your Roku device’s configuration.

4. Among the options, select “System” to access the system settings for your Roku device. This is where you can manage system-related functions such as software updates.

5. Inside the “System” menu, you will find an option called “System update.” Select this option to proceed with manually checking for any available updates for your Roku.

6. Once you are on the “System update” page, you will see a button labeled “Check Now.” Click on this button to initiate the process of manually checking for updates.

7. Roku will now connect to its servers and check for any available updates. This process may take a few moments, so please be patient.

8. After the check is complete, Roku will display the results. If there are any updates available, you will be prompted to download and install them. Simply follow the on-screen instructions to proceed with the update.

9. In case there are no updates available, Roku will inform you that your device is up to date. You can then exit the update process and continue using your Roku as usual.

It’s worth mentioning that Roku devices often receive automatic updates when connected to the internet. However, manually checking for updates ensures that you have the latest software version installed on your device.

Updating your Roku device is essential to ensure you have access to the latest features, bug fixes, and security patches. Regular updates also improve the overall performance and stability of your Roku device.

So, whenever you want to manually update your Roku, just follow the steps mentioned above, and you’ll be able to stay up to date with the latest software enhancements.
