Trying to pair my android phone to my roku tv

Hello. I'm trying to pair my android version 12 to my roku tv. I've actually paired it but it's not listed in the connected devices. I've tried quick share with Bluetooth, etc. I would like to be able to watch videos I've recorded and pics I've taken with my phone on my roku tv. Thanks for any and all help.

Re: Trying to pair my android phone to my roku tv

I believe you are mixing terms here. You don't/can't "pair" your phone to a Roku. Screen sharing is not pairing. I don't have an Android phone, but when I did back in 2017 I had to install an app on the phone to make it visible for screen sharing on my Roku. Perhaps the newer models no longer require that app, but in any case the phone has to have the function enabled to screen share the phone to the Roku. I can screen share my iPhone and my Windows laptop without a problem. 

Make sure the Roku has Screen Mirroring Mode enabled in the Settings/System menu.
