AirPlay 2 and HomeKit on a Vizio SmartCast TV

Vizio yesterday launched a beta version of its updated Smartcast software, which allows iPhone owners who have a Smartcast-enabled TV to use AirPlay 2 and HomeKit integrations for the first time on a third-party television set. We picked up a compatible Vizio television set (which includes the recent P and M series models at the current time) and were able to take a look at how AirPlay 2 and HomeKit work on a non-Apple device.

    I like the idea of built-in Apple TV, because it would save 2 ugly cables!

    But… my first generation of Samsung LCD 29″ or 30″ is still alive… and a 42″ LED LG still work…

    I won’t buy any TV unless the LG has a problem… GL to me lol
