A few weeks ago Roku started shipping its 2019 lineup of Roku Players with an updated remote. The main selling point of this new remote was the ability to not only turn your TV on and off plus change the volume but you can also now mute the TV with a single button.
Now Roku has put the new 2019 Roku Remote up for sale on Amazon for $19.99. This new remote also includes the ability to have voice search a feature, not all Roku players remotes came with.
If you want to use this new remote you will need a Roku Express*, Roku Express +*, Roku Streaming Stick*, Roku Streaming Stick+*, Roku Premiere, Roku Premiere+, Roku Ultra, Roku 2*, Roku 3, and Roku 4 (*some models may not be supported).
Here is what the new Roku Remote looks like:
