Introduction

Your Roku has the built-in ability to act as a Miracast screen mirror device, allowing you to easily show your desktop wirelessly.

Verify Miracast Support On Computer
Roku

What Is Miracast

Miracast is a wireless standard, allowing you to mirror your screen to another display using Wi-Fi. A simple way to think of this is "HDMI without the cable"; your computer connects wirelessly to your Roku to send the picture and sound to display on your television.

    If the Connect to a wireless display option is not listed, this means your device or video card does not support Miracast. If Miracast isn't supported, we recommend connecting directly with an HDMI cable or other methods.

    Windows 10 project menu displaying available wireless display options.
