YouTube app features on Roku Ultra?

Jump to solution

Does the Roku Ultra Youtube app support the following:

  • Read/Post comments?
  • Playback speed, from slow to fast, including 1.25x, 1.5x, 1.75x, 2x?   Some players fail to play sound in the faster speeds
  • 360° Video Support?
  • Share a video?

Roku doesnt code the Google YouTube app - Google does.

Google decides which features are implemented in their YT clients.

It can play the 360 videos, just without any 360 control.

Why doesn't it support 360 videos?  I would think the processor in the Ultra could handle it.

Is there one Roku player that supports more Youtube features than another?

I would think that Roku Ultra would support the most, but perhaps Youtube limited the features such that all devices are the same?
