Using Cast Feature
If you just want to screen share on Samsung TV from a specific app on your phone, like YouTube, then you can also do it using the cast feature. Apps like Netflix, YouTube, etc. have an in-built screen casting feature with which you can easily share the content you are watching on your phone to TV. Here’s how you can do it:
Step 1: First of all, make sure that the phone and Samsung TV are connected to the same Wi-Fi.
Step 2: Open the app on your phone and sign into the same account on both your Samsung TV and mobile.
Step 3: Play the content on your phone that you wish to watch on the big screen.
Step 4: Click the Cast icon and choose the device you wish to watch the content on (in our case, it’s a Samsung TV).
This is very limited as many apps don’t come with cast option.
How to Mirror Screen from PC to Samsung TV
In case you want to cast your PC screen to Samsung TV, you can also do that without installing any app. Here’s what you need to follow.
Step 1: Connect both your PC and Samsung TV to same wifi network for wireless screen sharing.

So this way you can mirror your PC screen wirelessly to Samsung TV. You can also use Samsung Smart View for Windows app, but it didn’t work for me.
For wired connection you can use HDMI cable. Connect one end of HDMI to TV and other end to PC and choose the same HDMI port number on your TV as source.
