On an old Galaxy S7, I could mirror my device in Google home and view pictures on our TV, via the 2nd Gen Chromecast.
Now I have a Samsung Galaxy A53 and at first it would connect to the Chromecast when cast screen was selected, then freeze and disconnect. Rebooting both devices, it will now connect but often takes several seconds when I move to the next photo before it will load, if at all. If I rotate the phone, the image on the TV starts to rotate then freezes.
I can cast Youtube, cast from another device. It is just mirroring my screen from the home app that is very clunky.
Chromecast and phone are on the same wifi network and same frequency.

I do get a pop up when I cast my screen
