Roku Express Won't Show Up in Airplay or Screen Mirror

I have three Rokus, one on a Insignia TV, one Ultra, and an Express. The Express refuses to show up in air play on my Macbook and on my phone. I've checked all the settings, changed it to prompt, but no matter what, the other 2 show up as options and the Express does not. HELP!

The device does have a screen mirroring option, so the technology is available...just not working.

The Express isnt supported for Airplay:

Is my Roku device compatible?

To determine if you can use AirPlay and HomeKit with your Roku device, you need to know the software version and device model. To find this information, go to the home screen and select Settings > System > About.

The Roku devices listed below support streaming with AirPlay 2:

Device Model

 Roku TV™ 

 Axxxx, Cxxxx, CxxGB, 7xxxx 

 Roku Streambar™


 Roku Smart Soundbar 

 9101, 9100 

 Roku Ultra

 4800, 4670, 4661, 4662, 4660, 4640 

 Roku Premiere

 4630, 4620, 3920 

 Roku Streaming Stick®+ 

 3811, 3810 

To use AirPlay and HomeKit, your compatible Roku device must be running Roku OS 9.4 or higher. Your Roku device checks for an update every 24-36 hours or you can manually check for a software update if necessary.
