However, users can still share photos, videos, and music between their Samsung devices using the built-in features and apps. For example, users can use the Quick Connect feature, which is built into Samsung Galaxy phones and tablets to wirelessly share photos and videos.

Alternatively, users can use the Smart View app to stream music, movies, photos, and other content from a Samsung mobile device to a compatible Samsung smart TV.

Do you have to pay for AllShare Cast?

No, AllShare Cast does not require any payment. AllShare Cast is a feature on Samsung Smart TVs and Smartphones that allows users to wirelessly share audio, video, and other content from their devices to their TVs.

To use AllShare cast, you must have a compatible Samsung Smart TV, Samsung Smartphone, and a reliable WiFi connection. The Smartphone and the Smart TV should be connected to the same WiFi network and then the Smartphone should be used as a ‘second screen’ to share content onto the Smart TV.

Is there a free AllShare Cast app?

At this time, there does not appear to be a free AllShare Cast app available for download. AllShare Cast is a screen mirroring technology from Samsung designed to allow compatible devices to wirelessly share audio and video content with a compatible television.
