Mirror your PC to Smart Tv via Roku for PC and Laptop. This app supports users who want to use apps like Hulu & Tubi TV on a bigger screen. To be honest, only the owner of Roku devices are allowed to use this app. So now such users can control all of their Roku device activities from a computer.
This tutorial is presented specifically for users trying to install “Roku for Windows 10/8/7/Mac”. Because these two are the major platforms used by PC users. Else, I’ll try to present the idea of getting an Android app on PC, in a way that you can use the same idea on a Linux Mint or Ubuntu machine.
While I tested the Roku app on my smartphone, I concluded that it helped me a lot in casting my Roku Dongle. Yes, you can use the same app for any Roku device, like Tv & Roku boxes. Though, there’s no difference in the app’s services according to Roku devices. All services work the same.
After using the same app for about some time, I wanted to use the same app’s services on my computer. Because this would help me enjoy all my favorite shows & movies on a bigger screen. So then I decided to get Roku for PC Download. The trick I used to claim such a reward, I’ll show it to you in this guide, but only when I’m done providing a short detail of the app.
What is Roku App?
If you are familiar with Roku devices, then you know that it helps you access live streaming apps on your smart tv. But if you own a Roku device(stick, dongle or box), then you may want to cast your smartphone with smart tv. Becasue if you are using apps like Cartoon HD, CotoMovies or CatMouse, then you’ll not be allowed to use them.
So to help users watch whatever they want via Roku, this app allows mirroring an Android device with a Tv. All you have to do is install this free from the Google Play Store on your device and enabling the mirroring service from the app. Thereafter, open a video that you want to cast and start watching it on your Tv.
One you need to know is that this app doesn’t work with Roku older versions. So before using this app, try to upgrade your Roku devices and then start using it. For further convenience, try to open a media file before casting your Android device. It’s because this app is specifically made for live-streaming services.
Yes, that’s the only problem with the Roku app. You can only use it to watch movies & tv shows, but nothing else. Another great con of this app is that it sometimes doesn’t support files from Netflix. Apart from that, you can use it to watch videos from Youtube, Facebook Watch or other online video streaming platforms.
