Attention Roku customers: Your gadgets are about to get a lot better. Whether you've already bought a Roku or plan on purchasing one soon, you're going to love this news. The company has released a few major updates that are going to make its streaming boxes work better than ever.

The Roku 3 now comes with a brand new remote control that includes a headphone jack and a microphone that supports voice search. Despite the upgraded hardware, the box still costs $99.99.

The new Roku 2's remote won't include the headphone jack or microphone, but the box has received a performance boost. The Roku 2 is now just as fast as the Roku 3, but still costs only $69.99.

Roku has also released software upgrades that will affect existing Roku 2 and Roku 3 gadgets.
