The other big improvement is a near-field mic, which lets you issue voice commands hands-free by saying "Hey Roku."

A switch on the side lets you disable the always-on mic for privacy.

Roku includes a micro-USB cable for charging. It says a charge lasts up to 2 months and the remote takes 2-3 hours to fully recharge.

Another feature is the remote finder, which causes the clicker to emit a beep or other tone and allow you to find it from within the couch cushions for example.
