Media option missing from Roku app

Jump to solution

I used to have an option for media in the Roku app where I could select pictures from my phone and show them on the TV. The media option just disappeared, how do I get it back?

Hi @DT420920,

Thanks for getting in touch, and welcome to the Roku Community!

Please be advised that this feature is no longer available on the Roku Mobile app platform anymore. You can still use screen mirroring and AirPlay as an alternative.

You can refer to our Support page below for more information:

  1. How to use screen mirroring with your Android™ or Windows® device
  2. How to use AirPlay and HomeKit with your Roku streaming device

Thanks,
Rey

I tried reinstalling the app and restarted the Roku, neither one made a difference. There are other reports of this issue, that the media option in the app just disappears.

The media casting option has disappeared from both my iPhone and my android apps, it must be something someone knows about?
