how to get jackbox on roku

Jackbox Games are not directly available as a standalone app on Roku devices. However, you can play Jackbox Games on your Roku by using a compatible device, such as a computer, smartphone, or tablet, and streaming it to your Roku through screen mirroring or casting. Here’s how to do it:

Note: Make sure your Roku device and the device you’re using to play Jackbox Games are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.

  1. On Your Computer, Smartphone, or Tablet:
    • First, ensure that you have a device with a compatible browser to play Jackbox Games. Most modern web browsers work well.
  2. Purchase and Install Jackbox Games:
    • Purchase and install the Jackbox Games you want to play on your device from an authorized platform, such as Steam, the Epic Games Store, or the official Jackbox Games website.
  3. Launch the Game:
    • Open the Jackbox Game you want to play and follow the on-screen instructions to start or join a game.
  4. Enable Screen Mirroring or Casting:
    • On your computer, smartphone, or tablet, enable screen mirroring or casting. The process varies depending on your device’s operating system:
      • For Windows 10: Use the “Connect” feature in the Action Center.
      • For Android: Use the built-in “Cast” feature in the quick settings or settings menu.
      • For iOS: Use AirPlay to mirror your device’s screen to the Roku.
  5. Connect to Your Roku:
    • Select your Roku device from the list of available devices for screen mirroring or casting on your computer, smartphone, or tablet. Your device’s screen should now appear on your Roku-connected TV.
  6. Play the Game:
    • Start or join the Jackbox game on your computer, smartphone, or tablet. You should see the game displayed on your Roku-connected TV.
  7. Use Your Device as a Controller:
    • Players can use their smartphones or tablets as controllers to participate in the game. Follow the on-screen prompts to enter the room code and play.

Please note that the specific steps for screen mirroring or casting may vary slightly depending on your Roku model and the device you’re using. Also, keep in mind that developments may have occurred since my last update, so it’s a good idea to check the official Roku Channel Store periodically to see if Jackbox Games have become available as a dedicated app on Roku devices.
