Roku screen mirroring
Roku devices have an option called the screen mirroring, an option that lets you mirror any device’s screen if the device from which you plan to get the screen mirrored is compatible for that. To use this and watch Kodi on a Roku supported device is easier than learning how to jailbreak Roku.

- A Roku device, with an active internet connection.
- An active internet connection with computer
- Google Chrome, and a Google account.
