You can use the Roku TV Screen Mirroring feature when you want to display the content from your phone or laptop on to your TV. The feature replicates or mirrors content from a compatible Windows or Android device that is wirelessly relayed into the TV. Send web pages, videos, photos, music, and much more to your compatible Roku streaming player or Roku TV with screen mirroring. First set up and enable the feature on your Android or Windows device to use the feature. Thereafter, request a connection to your Roku device. You can see your mobile screen on your TV, once a connection is established and even control it from your phone or tablet.
Note: Unfortunately, the Roku screen mirroring does not support Apple or iOS devices.
