What is a Screen Mirror?
Screen mirror is a feature present in most phones. Screen mirror allows you to display your phone’s content on a nearby TV. This feature allows you to replicate (mirror) the same screen of your mobile phone on the TV screen wirelessly.
With the aid of screen mirroring, you can display web pages, videos, audio, music, games, and basically everything on a large screen or on the Roku TV screen. When you screen mirror your phone (already cast previously with Oculus Quest headset) with the Roku TV, you are basically casting Quest to the Roku TV.
How to Use Screen Mirroring?
Using a screen mirror is not difficult. First of all, enable the screen mirroring feature from your phone. The next step is to request a connection from the phone to your Roku TV screen. Now confirm the request. Once you have approved the request, the secure connection is established. Now you can monitor your mobile screen on the Roku TV screen. You can also control your Roku TV screen’s displayed content from your mobile phone.
