Mastering Roku App Volume Control

Hi, I’m Tracy, a tech enthusiast and Roku user who’s well versed with maneuvering around the platform. In this short, precise article, I will be covering the essentials of the Roku app volume control.

Overview of Roku App Volume Control

The Roku app is a great addition to your streaming experience. It’s like having a mini remote control right in your pocket. One specific feature enhanced by this app is volume control.

What You Need to Know

Notably, the volume control on the Roku mobile app only works when you are using “Private Listening. Once you connect your headphones to your device (either via Bluetooth or cable), the app becomes your go-to volume control hub.

Steps to Control Volume on Roku App

1. Launch the Roku App

Start by launching the Roku App on your device and ensure you’re connected to the same WiFi network as your Roku player or TV.

2. Tap on the Remote Control Tab

Once your Roku device is selected, click on the remote icon located at the bottom of the screen.

3. Select Private Listening

To activate private listening, tap on the headphone symbol on the lower part of your remote screen. Now, any audio will be directed to your headphones, and the app volume controls are activated.

4. Adjust Volume Accordingly

From this point, you can freely adjust the volume using the app to your satisfaction. Depending on your device, these controls may be on the side or the top of your screen.

Remember to turn off private listening when you’re done to conserve battery life and make sure other app features function normally.


The Roku app volume control is a nifty feature that enhances your streaming experience, providing convenience and control at your fingertips. Mastering it is straightforward – such is the beauty of technology when simplified. I strive to make this kind of technology accessible and easier to understand.
