Features on Roku Ultra

I really like my Roku Ultra 4670x but it has three major limitations that I was not aware of.

1)There is no web browser. This is unacceptable in a box that cost $100.
Even Android $20 boxes have this.

2)No file browser.

3)And the big one is: No Google Play Store. Even lower end older Roku boxes have the Play Store from what I have seen. How can Roku compete in the streaming market without these options?

I also see no option for games.

Will this ever be added to the Ultra?

Re: Features on Roku Ultra

Sorry, but the answers are NO, NO, and NO!  First and foremost, ROKU IS NOT ANDROID!  They will never add a web browser because they have no interest in allowing you to watch pirate streams and that's possibly the main reason people want a web browser.  There's no need for a file browser - any media player will allow you to browse supported media on a DLNA server or USB drive. And finally, you won't see the Google Play Store because ROKU IS NOT ANDROID!
