I think Roku is dying. Apps don't perform properly. You can save movies, but for who?? There is no "saved" or "my stuff" on any Roku devices at all. The devices are a waste of money bc the technology has become so unreliable. Apps are always freezing and/or crashing. It's been this way for at least 3 years. Maybe Roku has gotten too old and big as a company that they've lost their way. Or maybe the pandemic damaged their business model to the point of no return. I think I'm officially over Roku.

Love the photo stream option for the screen saver--what I hate about it is that it doesn't show all the pictures. We have uploaded over 200 pictures, but for some reason it only shows a fraction of them and there is no way to customize how they are showed--that feature would be very helpful!! If it wasn't for this one fault, it would be 5 stars--Roku is simple and easy to use, no complaints other than the photo stream!!

Doesn't always connect, and the most recent update changed the layout to add an Account button where the Devices button used to be. How would you like it if I came to your house and rearranged the buttons on your remote? Also, why do I need an account button? Incredibly annoying, and no customization options. There are better third party apps that have fewer ads, connect faster, and have a better layout.
