How do I Screen mirror to my Roku?

Answered by Willian Lymon

To screen mirror to your Roku device, you’ll need to enable screen mirroring on both your Android device and the Roku device. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do it:

1. On your Android device, go to the settings menu. This can usually be accessed by swiping down from the top of the screen and tapping on the gear icon.

2. In the settings menu, look for a submenu related to casting, connection, display, or network. The exact location may vary depending on your device and Android version. Some possible options to look for include “Cast,” “Screen mirroring,” or “Wireless display.”

3. Once you find the screen mirroring option, tap on it to open the screen mirroring settings.

4. In the screen mirroring settings, you should see a list of available devices to connect to. Look for your Roku device in the list and tap on it to start the connection process. Note that both your Android device and the Roku device need to be on the same Wi-Fi network for this to work.

5. After selecting your Roku device, your Android device will start connecting to it. This may take a few seconds to establish a connection.

6. Once the connection is established, your Android device’s screen should be mirrored on your Roku device. You can now navigate and use your Android device as usual, and the actions will be mirrored on your TV or display connected to the Roku.

Now, let’s move on to enabling screen mirroring on your Roku device:

1. On your Roku device, press the Home button on your Roku remote to go to the main screen.

2. Using the Roku remote, navigate to the Settings menu. It is usually represented by a gear icon.

3. In the Settings menu, select the “System” option.

4. Within the System menu, you should find a submenu labeled “Screen mirroring.” Select that option.

5. In the Screen mirroring settings, make sure the “Enable screen mirroring” option is checked. If it’s not already enabled, check the box to enable it.

6. After enabling screen mirroring on your Roku device, it will be ready to receive a connection from your Android device.

Now that both devices have screen mirroring enabled, you should be able to mirror your Android device’s screen to your Roku device. Simply follow the steps mentioned earlier on your Android device to connect to your Roku device.

It’s worth noting that the steps may vary slightly depending on your specific Android device and Roku model. If you encounter any difficulties, you may refer to the user manual or support documentation for your respective devices.
