There’s plenty of room on a computer screen. More than enough to work with documents, create presentations, watch movies, and store files. However, there are some restrictions, such as being limited to a single screen or wanting an even bigger screen. If you’d like to give yourself more screen space, then you can consider finding a way to cast Mac to TV. It’s possible to do this with just about any smart TV, whether or not it’s an Apple TV. Here are some of the best apps to screen mirroring Mac to Samsung TV so that you can stream any thing from your Mac computer to TV’s large screen for better sharing or presentation.
AirbeamTV is one of the most popular programs for connecting Mac to Samsung TV. The program allows you to replicate your computer screen on TV in real time. It shows whatever you do on your computer on your television. It also has support for audio from your computer, making it the perfect choice to stream music, movies, and videos. From the settings of the app, you can adjust the LCD display to suit your environment. The app comes with a free trial, with a premium version that costs $9.99. That’s relatively cheap compared to other similar paid apps.
