Roku Media Player Multitasking

I can't believe in 2021, Roku Media Player can't play music and picture slideshow or Roku Default Screensaver at the same time.  Playing music with a fixed screen is going to cause burned in on OLEO TVs if it is on for hours.  I have a 2011 Western Digital WD TV Live box (yes, it is 10 years old) and it has no problem playing music and slideshow at the same time on day ONE.  No one have to request for that feature, it was there on the WD TV Live box

So, might I have this simple feature on the Roku PLEASE?

I keep hoping that Roku will surprise us and fix the problem but as you can see it has been a long time.

also, I have a WD TV Live as well.  I was disappointed when they ended that product line.
