VIZIO SmartCast™ Review

All the authors that work on this project are required to follow our guidelines. To make the most out of the app testing process, our authors launch it on various smartphones and tablets with not only the latest OS', but also the previous ones.

The SmartCast app developed by VIZIO for its consumers is incredibly usable for searching, discovering and browsing content. This app replaces a TV remote, and it’s available for free downloading on iOS and Android devices.

Functionality 4.5/5
Read More

You can use text or voice search to simultaneously search and browse for any content across multiple apps by genre. Once you find a title, simply tap the desired service to begin streaming content directly to a VIZIO SmartCast display.

Vizio’s app has a built-in feature that allows you to flag any movie or TV show for later viewing. You don’t need to worry about what streaming service it comes from because the SmartCast app can mark a content even from a stream that VIZIO does not support. You can also turn on a reminding function of getting alerts when, for instance, new TV episodes become available.

The best feature of the SmartCast app, however, is that you don’t have to switch apps to start watching something. If you search for a show that’s available on a particular streaming service, you can launch it on TV straight from SmartCast.

With other apps to find the same show, you’ll need to follow a link, go to that streaming service, install the show and then open it by hitting the Cast button in the app. Only after all of these steps, you’ll be able to watch the show.

Design 4/5

VIZIO P-Series TVs don’t have any on-screen interface — there are no apps or menus or controls or even picture settings on the TV itself. Therefore, the P-Series comes with a six-inch Android tablet, on which you can download Vizio SmartCast app and control everything by it.

VIZIO SmartCast app provides users with large buttons on the home screen interface that simplify navigation and make key functions like power, play, pause and volume easily accessible.

The VIZIO SmartCast app home screen has a convenient Cast Apps section that features popular Chromecast-enabled apps like Netflix, XUMO and Pluto TV for quick accessibility.

An Android widget allows you to control Cast session even when your VIZIO SmartCast tablet is on remote or Android mobile device is locked.

Usability 5/5

This app is pretty simple to use. With the only one tap your favorite movie, show or song can easily go from the mobile phone or tablet to any VIZIO SmartCast or Cast-enabled device on the same WiFi network. Due to the casting over WiFi, you can still multitask on your mobile device without interrupting the Cast session.

Cross-platform use 3.5/5

A good thing about VIZIO SmartCast is that if you don’t have a P-series TV, you can use this app with other Android TV devices. There’s also an iOS version of the app, and any other app or service that supports Cast can send content to the TV.

However, not all Google Cast-enabled apps are integrated with the VIZIO’s app and may require additional steps to cast.


The VIZIO SmartCast app gives to its consumer completely new experience of the remote control, allowing them to transform their iOS or Android mobile devices into a powerful touchscreen control panels.





VIZIO SmartCast will make you experience a new way of watching your favorite movies, TV shows and live streams.

Pros : voice search option;
personalized watchlists;

Cons : not compatible with legacy VIZIO Internet Apps® and VIZIO Internet Apps Plus® Smart TVs;
