How To Install Google Chrome On Roku Tv


Google Chrome is an amazing browser with some amazing features. Incognito mode enables private browsing without using up too much data; bookmark important websites for easy access; and more!

However, Roku does not offer its browser as an individual app – you must use screen mirroring in order to access it.

Chrome offers many features that make it ideal for browsing the internet on TV, including Incognito Mode that enables multiple users to share one account without sharing personal information and an integrated history cleaner feature.

Once activated on PC, Chrome can then be launched from PC and displayed directly on Roku TV screen.

2. Enable Screen Mirroring
