Share media to your TV and Smart Monitor with AirPlay 2
Pictures, videos, and music can be shared from your iOS devices, like iPhones, iPads, and Macs, right on your Samsung TV and Samsung Smart Monitor with AirPlay 2. You’ll need to make sure your TV and Smart Monitor are connected to the internet, and that your iOS device is connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
Note: Most mobile hotspots do not allow communication between devices even when connected to the same network. If you use a mobile hotspot for your internet connection, AirPlay will not work.

From here, you can turn on the feature.
