I just bought a UN58CU7000FXZA and when I click the cast button on my phone (an s23 ultra) it will not find the TV. I have tried changing wifi networks, reboots, etc... but the cast button will not see the TV as a device to connect to. No I do not want to do screen mirroring. Just to be 100% clear this is for casting from netflix or youtube not for screen mirroring. I also do not want to use the built in app. Is this TV just incapable of doing something 10+ year old $100 TVs can? Do I need to go spend another $50 on a chromecast to gain back this very basic feature?

Any information is appreciated, thanks.

Yep same wifi. I tried both on 5gz and 2.4gz. I did not think about trying Google home. I will do that when I get home.

Ah I didn't even think about adding it to my Google home. I will do that once I get home from work. Thanks.

I found my answer finally. Newer Samsung TVs do not allow for traditional casting.
