Remote Microphone

Tue Apr 21, 2015 9:51 am

Will developers be able to develop apps that take advantage of the microphone built into the new Roku3 units?

My money goes to "no". Because:
  • If anyone's to do it, RokuCo themselves would want to release a Skype on the player
  • Huge privacy concerns of apps eavesdropping
  • Devs have been waiting for years for the B/S API to support simultaneous button presses and accelerometer from the enhanced remote

nah, but it would be cool.

I thought about that earlier as I was playing with a camera app, would be awesome to speak into the remote and forward that stream to the speaker on the camera. :)

never happen though, and a lot of things above that on my wish list. :mrgreen:
