Vizio has announced that they will include all of their 2016 4K UHD SmartCast Displays in the list of models that will be updated with Apple AirPlay 2 and HomeKit functionality. The announcement came as a reply from Vizio’s Support Twitter account to a question from a Vizio owner.

Apple last week shared a list of AirPlay 2-enabled television sets on their HomeKit website. However, only sets from 2017 through 2019 were listed. Vizio sets included:
- Vizio P-Series Quantum (2019 and 2018)
- Vizio P-Series (2019, 2018 and 2017)
- Vizio M-Series (2019, 2018 and 2017)
- Vizio E-Series (2019, 2018 and 2017)
- Vizio D-series (2019, 2018 and 2017)
So far, Vizio is the only television manufacturer thats is offering AirPlay 2 capabilities on their older television sets. LG, Samsung, and Sony are limiting support for the feature to their 2018 and 2019 models.
