Movies and TV shows can have a wide range of sounds. Night listening mode is an audio feature available on some Roku® streaming devices that allows you to watch movies and TV shows without disturbing others nearby. When night listening mode is enabled, the volume of soft sounds like whispering is increased while the volume of loud sounds like explosions is decreased.
