Vizio announced at CES 2018 that their SmartCast TV lineups, past and present, would be receiving support for Apple’s AirPlay 2 and HomeKit as a free over-the-air update later this year.
The update will allow iOS and Mac users to stream music and video to SmartCast-enabled Vizio televisions, and allow user to control the TV via Siri voice commands or from their Home app on their iOS devices.
Vizio has now announced signup for the beta testing program for the feature, which should go public sometime in the first quarter of 2019. Vizio TV and iOS device owners can visit the page to click a link to sign up for access to the beta program.
If you have a SmartCast-enabled VIZIO TV and an updated iOS device, you could be selected to participate in the beta. Provide your email, and we’ll get back to you soon with more details on how to get started.
Vizio says SmartCast models as far back as 2016 will be receiving the update.
