AT CES 2019, many TV manufacturers have announced Apple AirPlay integrated for their TVs. Vizio promised that many existing TVs dating from 2016 would also receive these features. Now you can join the beta and get AirPlay earlier.
AirPlay will allow you to send content from your iPhone, iPad or Mac to your Vizio TV. For example, you can stream videos from iTunes, listen to music from Apple Music, or even play back your iPhone or Mac on the TV. AccueilKit support means that you can use Siri to control the TV (turn it on and off, adjust the volume, and start playback) with an iPhone, iPad, or HomePod.
As Vizio told us, the SmartCast 3.0 software with these new features should be deployed for everyone in the second quarter of 2019. But in the first quarter of 2019, you can join the Vizio beta program and receive it sooner. . This will allow you to install the beta version of SmartCast 3.0 on your TV. You may encounter bugs if you make the jump before everyone is ready.
If you're interested, you can now sign up for the Vizio SmartCast 3.0 beta if you live in the United States or Canada. Head toward Vizio Registration Page and enter your email address to start. It seems that Vizio has not yet deployed the beta software, but you'll be the first to know when Vizio will do it.
according to Apple, the following TVs will receive SmartCast 3.0 software:
VIZIO P series Quantum X (2019)
VIZIO P-Series Quantum (2019 and 2018)
VIZIO P series (2018, 2017 and 2016)
VIZIO M-Series Quantum (2019)
VIZIO M Series (2018, 2017 and 2016)
VIZIO E Series (UHD 2018, 2017 and 2016 models)
VIZIO V-Series (2019)
Series VIZIO D (2018)
To the best of our knowledge, other Vizio TVs will not receive the SmartCast 3.0 software update.
Thanks to Engadget to spot that.
