One Zoom screen share / screen cast - works with Chromecast only?

Is it the case that Zoom will only share screen to a Google chromecast enabled device?    
My Lenovo P2 smarphone instantly screenshares with my Samsung TV (7 series) , Amazon Fire stick (and various differnet TVs when on holiday) but Zoom seemingly does not - neither device recognises the other, when connected to home wifi.   Not happy if i need to buy a £30 Google chromecast dongle for every TV and cart around with me, thinking about sending the Zoom back.

Hi.

 

Motorola phones, as a rule, support Chromecast only for screen sharing.

many thanks - seems odd to me that Lenovo branded phone is different.

Found below for One Vision, might apply to One Zoom. Sharing media without Chromecast.

Thanks, had tried WiFi direct and hotspot sharing but same problem - devices don't recognize each other. 

And We're back...
