Moreover, we will cover all operating systems like Android phones, iOS devices, Windows computers, and others separately.

Can you screen mirror to TCL Roku TV?

Unlike most smartest Android or Apple TVs, which are only compatible with some operating systems, TCL Roku TVs have both Airplay for iOS and standard Screen mirror protocol for Android, Windows & all other devices.

So, no matter your device model or company, TCL screen mirroring features will support all of them; it is because Roku TV has the Roku OS operating system, which neither belongs to Apple nor any Android company, so Roku as a third-party try tries to be compatible to all kinds of devices for better sales.

In contrast, Apple & Android companies, in most TV models, only support their own devices’ screen mirroring for the sake of rivalry.

Available: cast any screen to TCL Roku TV via FlashGet Cast

cast to TCL TV via FlashGet Cast

“FlashGet Cast is a third-party screen mirroring app allowing you to mirror mobiles/tablets/PCs to any smart TV.”

You must wonder why you need a third-party app if all devices have built-in screen mirroring features.

Well, the answer is “Better Speed.”

Most Android phones & Windows PCs have poor-quality built-in screen mirroring features due to low processing power, software errors, and other reasons. While in the case of Apple Airplay, it may not be compatible with all TCL/ other smart TVs and may show parsing errors.

You can’t use the built-in option for screen mirroring TCL Roku TV in all the above scenarios. You will need to find some third-party apps like FlashGet cast, which uses their method for mirroring to give top-notch speed, irrespective of the device.


“FlashGet Cast can also be used to mirror mobile-to-mobile, mobile-to-PC, PC-to-mobile, and so on.”

How to Screen Mirror via FlashGet Cast?

In the case of the FlashGet Cast App, connect your TV and mobile/ PC to the same Wi-Fi ( If you have a premium package, you can cast from anywhere using different networks).

Now, on your TV, go to any browser and download the FlashGet Cast web version.

When the link opens on the TV, you will see a QR scanning and 9-digit codes.

Go to your mobile/ PC, and install FlashGet Cast App.

Open your mobile/ PC FlashGet Cast app, and enter/scan the code from the TV on it.

Finally, after some permissions, your phone/ computer screen will be mirrored on the TCL Roku TV.


➢Casting means you are mirroring an individual app screen like Youtube, Gallery, etc.

➢Screen Mirroring means you are mirroring the whole mobile screen, and where you will go on your mobile screen, it will be displayed on the TV.
Unlike screen mirroring, there is no need to activate any setting on your TV or mobile in casting. You can cast any mobile cast-supported app to any smart Roku TV by following the below steps; Make sure that both mobile & television are paired to the same wifi network. Go to a casting-supported app like Youtube and play any video Then click on the casting icon. A prompt will appear with TV names; choose your Roku TV. That’s it.

Last words

As mentioned above, screen mirroring or casting to a TCL Roku Tv is possible in 3-ways;

i) By using the Built-in screen mirror option ( like Airplay, Miracast, etc. )
ii) By using Third-party mirroring apps ( like FlashGet Cast )
iii) By using Cables

Well, built-in features are no doubt given by the original manufacturer, but they have very slow speed and cause pairing & other multiple errors all the time. So, in 70% ~ 90% of the cases, they don’t work.

In the case of cables, they indeed give 100% lag-free and the fastest connection possible, but you can’t carry them everywhere, and they can make your home/office look messy.

However, the last, third-party mirroring app option (like FlashGet cast) is the best choice in every aspect because they give medium to high speed, operate via a wireless connection which looks neat, and you can carry them anywhere with you.
