Cast Android to TV via the external dongle

It is important to note that for the third-party Apps & Android built-in mirroring feature to work, the receiving TV must be Smart, which means it must have a browser App & internet capability or at least have a built-in signal receiver.

However, in case your TV is not smart but an old box with some HDMI & USB ports, then you can still use it for screen mirroring using external Dongles, which are;

“In simple terms, external dongles/streaming devices have hi-tech boards, just like in smart TV, but packed in a portable case. And when these dongles are connected to old TVs, these dongles do all the brain processing work while the old TVs do the work of displaying. So, these dongles can make any old TV smart.”
