How to Watch Facebook on Roku Streaming Devices

Do you want to get Facebook on Roku?  Even though the official Facebook app was removed from the popular streaming gadget years ago, social media material from Facebook is still available on Roku. If you are trying to find Facebook on Roku, then you must have gotten disappointed because Facebook is not available directly on Roku. So what’s the other way round? Let’s discuss this in this post.

Facebook is a well-known platform enjoyed by a large population. Almost everyone who has ever used the internet has a Facebook account. You can share your photographs, videos, and opinions with your Facebook friends. Not only that, but you can also message, call (both voice and video), and watch various videos.

You can get Facebook on your Roku by casting from your computer or phone. Download the “WebCast Video” app for your phone, then use the URL browser to launch Facebook or Facebook Watch. For PC users, enable “screen mirroring” in Roku and cast using the “Connection” options in Windows. You may also use Google Chromecast or Airserver to cast Facebook Watch from Windows or Mac to Roku. We’ll also go over some more ways to use Facebook on your Mac or Roku. You may already be familiar that Facebook is available on Roku, but not through the official channels users can download. Casting or screen mirroring will be the only options until Roku and Facebook agree on an official app… that may never occur! 

How to watch Facebook on Roku?

As previously stated, there is no official or unauthorized Facebook channel for Roku, so we must use the screen-sharing way to use it. Are you unsure what Screen Sharing is? It mirrors your screen from your phone or computer to your Roku device so you can watch Facebook videos.

Follow the instructions below if you don’t know how to mirror your device to Roku.

Screen mirroring is not supported by all Roku devices. The following gadgets can only reflect the screen.

  • Roku Express: is only supported on model 3900 (released in 2017), not the device 3700.
  • Roku Express+: Screen mirroring is only supported on the HDMI output on the model 3910 (released in 2017), not on the composite or A/V output.
