    Since Android 6, Google have been pushing for the Chromecast devices.

    Therefore in order for you to be able to use the Cast feature on the phones you will have to purchase Chrome cast.

    You can still stream content (media) to your TV by using Direct Wi-Fi, if your TV supports it, or use a dedicated app from Samsung to control your TV and stream.

     ... and if HMD were remotely interested in customer satisfaction and producing fully featured devices they would reinstate Miracast functionality

    Installing such functionality would make the OS fragmented and not pure. And I like my device to be with a clean Android version.

    This is because Google stripped Miracast out in android 5, lollipop. You can get apps in the playstore which allow screen mirroring. In any case on devices where I actually had this feature it never worked very well. You are far better off with a usb c to hdmi adapter and connecting with a cable. As far as I know these do work with the Nokia 8.

    There are some methods in this thread which you can try to get it working on your phone: https://community.phones.nokia.com/discussion/22177/solution-to-cast-screen-without-chromecast

    According to the Wifi Alliance the Nokia 8 should support Miracast. If HMD have removed Miracast support then the certification should probably be revoked: https://www.wi-fi.org/product-finder-results?sort_by=default&sort_order=desc&categories=4&subcategories=38&capabilities=2&companies=4563600
