In a further initiative designed to make it easy for Roku customers to connect their mobile devices with their TVs in fun and exciting ways, the connected streaming platform is rolling out a beta release of a new screen mirroring feature for a select number of Windows 8.1 and Android devices. Available to customers around the world, screen mirroring is a quick, easy way to mirror videos, apps, web sites, and more from a mobile device to a TV via Roku 3 or Roku Streaming Stick (HDMI Version).
Screen mirroring is one of the simplest ways to share any type of content, without the need for additional apps or software. “All you’ll need is a compatible device with mirroring capabilities. Once you turn on mirroring for your phone, tablet or laptop, you can pair with your compatible Roku player and whatever you see on your mobile device is exactly what will be displayed on your TV,” said Roku in a blog post.
The beta release of the new screen mirroring feature began its roll out to Roku customers October 2nd, with Roku expecting it to be available to all customers within the next few weeks.
