Connect to device from Android

How do we get our app to launch when prompted from another device such as Android or iOS? I've noticed this feature exists on YouTube and Netflix.

Thanks,
Alex

I assume it has something to do with this?

Yes, you got the right document. ECP is the one that has been used for years to control Roku over network.

Last year (can't tell when since it is not chalked in Release Notes :rollSmiley Happy RokuCo has added some kind of support for DIAL protocol too, which i am mostly clueless about.
