Screen mirroring to my android phone

Jump to solution

One of my devices does not show up on my android/smart view for Samsung phone, to link to my phone.  The other two devices in my home show and I can mirror to both of them.

Hi @gripnrip26,

Welcome to the Roku Community!

Thanks for reaching out about this screen mirroring issue. We'd like to help. It's possible that something is wrong with the screen mirroring connection.

See how to confirm the screen mirroring connection.

Once you establish a connection between your Android device to your Roku streaming device, a screen mirroring request will appear on your TV screen. Using your Roku remote, select an option to allow the request.

  • Always allow: Always allow content from the device to be screen mirrored to your Roku device without displaying the on-screen prompt during each future attempt. This adds the device to a list of allowed devices.
  • Allow: Allow content from the device to be screen mirrored on your Roku device for the current session.
  • Block: Block the current attempt and do not allow the device to connect to your Roku device.
  • Always block: Always block an attempt from the device, and do not display an on-screen prompt for future attempts. This adds the device to a list of blocked devices.

After you accept a request and a screen mirroring connection is established, you can browse your Android device on the TV and watch content from the apps installed on that device. When you are playing content, use your Android device to play, pause, fast forward, and rewind.

If this has been set up already and is still having an issue, please report back here with the serial number of the Roku device. We'll take a closer look.

Thanks,
Rey
