Do you want to mirror your Android device to Roku but don’t have access to a WiFi network? Don’t worry, it’s still possible!

In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of mirroring your Android device to Roku without WiFi. So, let’s get started!

Requirements:

  • An Android device with a screen mirroring feature
  • A Roku streaming device or Roku TV
  • An HDMI cable
  • An HDMI-to-Micro USB adapter (if required)

Step 1: Connect the Roku device to your TV

If you haven’t already done so, connect your Roku device to your TV using the HDMI cable. Make sure it is securely plugged into both the Roku device and the TV.

Step 2: Enable Screen Mirroring on your Android device

To mirror your Android device to Roku, you need to enable the screen mirroring feature on your Android device. The steps may vary slightly depending on your Android version and manufacturer, but here’s a general guide:

  1. Open the “Settings” app on your Android device.
  2. Navigate to the “Display” or “Screen” settings.
  3. Look for an option called “Cast,” “Wireless Display,” or “Screen Mirroring.”
  4. Tap on it and select “Enable” or turn it on.

If you can’t find the screen mirroring option in your settings, consult your Android device’s user manual or search online for specific instructions for your model.

Step 3: Connect your Android device to Roku via HDMI

Now that you have enabled screen mirroring on your Android device, it’s time to connect it to Roku using the HDMI cable:

  1. Plug one end of the HDMI cable into the HDMI port on your Roku device.
  2. If your Android device has a Micro USB port instead of an HDMI port, connect the HDMI-to-Micro USB adapter to your Android device.
  3. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable or adapter to an available HDMI input on your TV.

Step 4: Start screen mirroring

With the physical connections in place, it’s time to start screen mirroring:

  1. Turn on your TV and select the appropriate HDMI input where you connected Roku.
  2. On your Android device, open the “Settings” app again.
  3. Navigate back to the “Cast,” “Wireless Display,” or “Screen Mirroring” option.
  4. Your Roku device should appear in the list of available devices. Tap on it to establish a connection.

Congratulations! Your Android device is now mirrored to Roku.

You should see your Android device’s screen displayed on your TV through Roku. You can now enjoy apps, games, videos, and more from your Android device on a bigger screen without needing WiFi!

Troubleshooting Tips:

  • If you’re having trouble connecting or experience lag during screen mirroring, make sure both devices are connected properly and are within close proximity.
  • Restarting both devices can sometimes resolve connectivity issues.
  • If you encounter any compatibility issues, check for firmware updates for both your Android device and Roku.

That’s it! You’ve successfully mirrored your Android device to Roku without WiFi.
