Roku will continue to support its older Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 8.1 apps, even as the streaming device company launches its new Windows 10 app for PCs.


Neowin got that bit of good news from a Roku spokesperson. That means the many Windows Phone 8.1 owners can expect to continue to use their version of the app, which serves as a remote control for Roku's streaming set-top boxes and sticks.

However, when asked if a Windows 10 Mobile version of the app was in the works, the Roku spokesperson only said:

We are always looking for ways to enhance the Roku experience but don't have any additional plans to announce at this time.

Hopefully Roku will make the Windows 10 PC app a true UWP app in a future update so it can run on Windows 10 Mobile as well.
