Cast to Roku with iPhone issue

When I select the cast icon on any app on my iPhone, it doesn’t give an option for any of my Roku devices. Everything is on the same network. All I see are the airplay options. Any ideas how to get this feature to work? I don’t want to mirror.

Cannot stream from iPhone to TCL Roku TV

My iPhone 8 and Roku TV are on the same wireless network.  When I launch the Roku app on my phone, I am not able to stream content to the TV. I do not even see an option to stream. My phone does not appear as a Screen Mirroring Device on my TV.  Can someone help please?  Thx

Re: Cannot stream from iPhone to TCL Roku TV

That's not what the Roku app is for. It is basically an enhanced remote control you can use instead of, or in combination with, the hand-held remote that came with the unit.

Thanks for the inquiry.

Please be aware that screen mirroring with a Roku device is not supported with iOS® or Apple devices.

Re: Cannot stream from iPhone to TCL Roku TV

You can't mirror the screen from an iphone unless you add a 3rd party app:

You should be able to cast from apps that support it (YouTube, Netflix, Plex, etc.)

You can send media that is 'on' your phone (music/videos/photos) from the roku app.
