VIZIO’s beta program lets you help make the next version of SmartCast the best release yet. Test-drive the pre-release versions that include Apple AirPlay 2 and HomeKit, and let us know what you think. We’re excited to get you started, but we want to share some pointers.
Apple AirPlay 2 and HomeKit Features
With AirPlay 2, you can stream or share content from Apple devices to the big screen. Effortlessly play videos, music, photos and more from your iPhone, iPad and Mac on your VIZIO SmartCast TV. HomeKit lets you easily and securely control your VIZIO TV and other HomeKit-enabled products with the Home app or Siri on your Apple devices.
This preview requires some technical know-how and sufficient time to complete on-boarding. You will need to be comfortable with upgrading system software on your iOS and VIZIO devices. The VIZIO SmartCast Mobile app will step you through the required process. Complete the next steps in the app:
