Connecting your Android phone to your Hisense Roku TV can open up a whole new world of possibilities for entertainment and convenience. Whether you want to stream videos, share photos, or even control your TV using your phone, this guide will walk you through the process step-by-step.
What You’ll Need:
Before we get started, make sure you have the following:
- An Android phone with Wi-Fi connectivity
- A Hisense Roku TV
- A stable Wi-Fi network
Step 1: Connect Your Phone and TV to the Same Wi-Fi Network
In order for your Android phone to communicate with your Hisense Roku TV, both devices need to be connected to the same Wi-Fi network. To do this:
- On your Android phone, go to Settings.
- Select Wi-Fi and make sure it is turned on.

To enable screen mirroring on your Hisense Roku TV:
- Using your Roku remote, press the Home button.
- Navigate to Settings and select System.
- Select Screen mirroring and choose Enable screen mirroring.
If you don’t see the Screen mirroring option in the System settings, it may be because your specific Hisense Roku TV model does not support this feature. In that case, you can explore other options such as using a Roku app on your phone to control the TV.
Step 3: Connect Your Android Phone to Your Hisense Roku TV
Now that both your phone and TV are on the same Wi-Fi network and screen mirroring is enabled, it’s time to establish the connection:
- On your Android phone, swipe down from the top of the screen to open the Notification Shade.
- Look for an option called Cast, Screen Mirroring, or Smart View. The exact name may vary depending on your phone’s manufacturer.
- Select this option and wait for your phone to search for available devices.
- Once your Hisense Roku TV appears in the list of available devices, tap on it to establish the connection.
