By using Miracast, the signal from your Windows 10 laptop travels directly to the television or set-top-box that connected to your television. You’ll no longer need the HDMI cable to screencast your Windows 10 laptop screen. Windows 10 has all the abilities for Miracast built-in and does not require further software.

I don’t have a Smart TV or Android TV, but I’m using an Android box. This is how I connect my Windows 10 laptop to my television using Miracast function in Windows 10. I think the steps for both will be very similar.
