Screen mirroring technology allows users to display content from one device onto the screen of another device, usually a larger one. This tutorial will help you learn how to screen mirror your device’s display on a Roku.
Step 1: Check the Compatibility
The first step when attempting to screen mirror is to make sure that your device and Roku are compatible with each other. There are a variety of devices and platforms that can be used but generally, they must support Miracast or Google Cast technology. To find out if your device supports either of these technologies, consult the manufacturer’s website.
Step 2: Connect Your Device
Once you ensure that both your device and Roku are compatible, the next step is to connect them. This can be done by using an HDMI cable, Chromecast, wireless display adapter (such as ActionTec), or with the built-in casting feature in some smart TVs. The exact setup steps will vary depending on what connection type you choose.
Step 3: Set Up Screen Mirroring
Once your device is connected to Roku, you can now set up screen mirroring. This can typically be done by navigating to the “Settings” page in Roku’s main menu and selecting the “Screen Mirroring” options. From here you should see an option to begin the mirroring process and select it. You may need to enter a code provided on the TV’s display for this step for it to complete successfully.
Step 4: Start Streaming
After setting up screen mirroring, you should now be able to start streaming content from your device directly onto your TV’s display! Depending on the type of connection used, there may also be additional features such as pausing or rewinding available when streaming content through Roku’s interface. Enjoy watching whatever content you choose!
