What is screen mirroring?
Screen mirroring is a feature present on most phones. Screen Mirror lets you display your phone’s content on a nearby TV. This feature allows you to wirelessly replicate (mirror) the same screen of your mobile phone. With screen mirroring, you can display web pages, videos, audio, music, games, and basically everything on a bigger screen or Roku TV screen. When you screen mirror your phone (already cast with the Oculus Quest headset) to the Roku TV, you’re essentially casting Quest to the Roku TV.
How to use screen mirroring?
Using screen mirroring is not difficult. First, enable the screen mirroring feature from your phone. The next step is to request a connection from the phone to your best Roku TV screen. Confirm the request now. Once you approve the request, a secure connection is established. Now you can monitor your mobile screen on a Roku TV screen.
