Screen mirroring allows you to display (or “mirror”) the screen of your Android or Windows wireless device on your TV screen, displaying web pages, videos, photos, music, etc. via your Roku streaming device. To use Screen Mirroring, your Roku broadcast device and your mobile device must be connected to the same wireless network.
The mirrored screen is not supported on iOS or Apple devices, or on Google devices running OS 6.0 or later. If you’re not looking to mirror the screen and only want to display videos, photos, and music stored on your mobile device on your TV, you can use the Roku mobile app, which is a free app for iOS devices and Android.
Screen Mirroring is enabled from the Settings menu of your TCL Roku TV.
- Press on your remote.
- Select Settings.
- Select System.
