How do I link my phone to my Roku?

Answered by Antonio Sutton

To connect your phone to your Roku device, you can use the Roku app as a remote control. Here’s how to do it:

1. Make sure your phone and your Roku player are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. This is important for them to be able to communicate with each other.

2. If you haven’t already, download the Roku app from the App Store (for iOS devices) or the Google Play Store (for Android devices). Install and open the app on your phone.

3. Once the app is open, tap on the “Devices” button located at the bottom-right corner of the screen. This will take you to a page where you can see all the Roku devices available on your network.

4. Look for your Roku device on the list and tap on it. The app will then attempt to connect to your Roku player.

5. If this is the first time you’re connecting your phone to your Roku, you may be prompted to enter a code that appears on your TV screen. Follow the instructions on the app to enter this code.

6. Once your phone is successfully connected to your Roku, you should see a remote control interface on the app. You can now use your phone as a remote to control your Roku player.

7. The Roku app also offers additional features, such as the ability to browse and add channels to your Roku, stream content from your phone to your Roku, and use voice search. Take some time to explore these features and make the most out of your Roku app.

That’s it! You have successfully connected your phone to your Roku device without using a physical remote control. Enjoy your streaming experience with the convenience of controlling your Roku from your phone.
