How to Easily Mirror Your Phone or Tablet onto a Roku TV

Have you ever wanted to display content from your phone or tablet right onto your Roku TV? Well, luckily Roku makes “screen mirroring” very easy!

What is Screen Mirroring?

Screen mirroring allows you to wirelessly send what’s on your mobile device’s screen over to a nearby TV. This lets you view photos, videos, websites, apps, presentations – you name it – on the bigger screen.

It’s great for a few reasons:

  • Watch videos or play mobile games on your TV
  • Show off vacation pics to the whole family
  • Give work presentations straight from your tablet
  • And much more!

Check if Your Roku Supports Screen Mirroring

Most newer Roku devices have built-in support for screen mirroring including:

  • Roku players released 2015 or later
  • Roku TVs running Roku OS 8.0 or newer

You can double check which Roku model you have by going to:

Home Screen > Settings > System > About

As long as you see you’re running Roku OS 8 or higher, you’re all set for wireless screen mirroring.

If your Roku is older, don’t worry! You can still manually check for a software update:

Home Screen > Settings > System > System Update > Check Now

This will automatically install the latest update if available.

Mirror from an Android Device

Casting your Android screen is simple:

  1. On your Android device, go to Settings > Connected Devices > Connection Preferences
  2. Turn on Wireless Display
  3. Select your Roku TV from the list of available devices
  4. Allow the connection request on your TV

And voila! Your Android screen will now be displayed on your Roku.

Pro Tip: You can access Quick Settings for faster toggling of Wireless Display on many Android phones.

Mirror from a Windows PC

If you have Windows 10, screen mirroring only takes a few clicks:

  1. Click the Connect button on your Roku remote
  2. Choose Enable Screen Mirroring
  3. On your Windows PC go to Settings > Devices > Bluetooth & other devices
  4. Click Add Bluetooth or other device > Wireless display or dock
  5. Select your Roku TV from the list of available devices

After allowing the connection, your Windows screen will instantly mirror to the TV!

Now Sit Back and Enjoy Your Big Screen

With just a couple quick steps, you can mirror almost any phone or computer display onto your Roku TV. No cables, adapters, or upgrading your devices required!

I hope this guide helps you enjoy your photos, videos, games, and more on that beautiful big screen. Just tap a button and start casting whatever’s on your mobile device. It doesn’t get much easier than that.
