Screen mirroring with your Roku device


Screen mirroring might be one of those handy computer tricks that are convenient but that you just never got around to trying. But mirroring, meaning where you duplicate what is on one screen to another screen, is probably a lot easier than your thought. If you have a ROKU device connected to your TV or built-in Roku for your TV, screen mirroring is not at all difficult. And with millions of ROKU devices in the wild, you may already have what you need.

Allow mirroring in Roku settings

First, from the Roku home page, select settings => System => Screen Mirroring. In the screen mirroring mode, set "always allowed." Now you are ready to connect another screen.

Mirroring from an iPhone

Do you want to mirror from an iPhone? Swipe down from the top right-hand corner of your screen to show the control center. Then click on the double rectangle icon. Choose the Roku Premiere option and your iPhone screen will begin mirroring on your TV.

Mirroring from Windows

Do you want to mirror your Windows Computer? Open your settings, and choose "Connect to a wireless display." Then click "Connect" and choose "Roku Premiere." Your computer screen will duplicate on your TV.

Videos, live feeds, webinars

Relax on the couch and watch videos mirrored to your TV. I discovered a new use for mirroring when I wanted to watch a video I found in the library. Although I didn't have a DVD player for my TV, I did have a computer with a built-in DVD player so that the movie could just be mirrored to my TV. With mirroring, you do need to go back to the original device to interact. So, don't plan to mirror during a Zoom call. However, with recorded feeds or even live feeds where you don't plan to interact, a feed mirrored to your TV will allow you to watch it in a more relaxed seting, letting you step away from the computer and watch with your feet up.
