Key Functions 9/10

The Vizio SmartCast app allows you to not only browse and discover old or new movies, TV shows, and live streams but also helps you to perform various other functions in a faster and simpler manner. The app enables you to set-up your Vizio SmartCast compatible products from a remote location.

A simple voice search enables you to find your favorite entertainment by actor, artists, genre and much more. You can even organize your preferred entertainment in a better manner by queuing up your favorites and simple-to-set reminders. 

The app also features simple controls that enable you to power off and power on devices, play and pause content, increase or decrease the volume besides performing various other functions many of which are not offered by a traditional remote. 

Usability 8/10

The best aspect of Vizio SmartCast app in terms of its usability is that can work over internet and Wi-Fi. This means that you can use the app to cast your favorite entertainment to any SmartCast device located anywhere within your home network. 

You can even use the app to cast your preferred entertainment to a different device or soundbar. Sadly, the app does not offer compatibility with all Vizio products, which is regarded as a usability drawback by many. However, it works perfectly fine with some of the selected SmartCast Vizio product, including TVs, Soundbars, and home theatre systems, which can go a long way in enhancing the scope and quality of your entertainment while also changing the way in which you enjoy it.   

Cross Platform Use 9/10

The app works flawlessly on almost every Andriod and iOS device. However, the app is not compatible with Windows devices. It also helps you to consolidate your favorite entertainment from multiple apps at one place.

The app provides a fascinating solution to ensure that you gain complete control over the operation and management of your SmartCast compatible products and preferred entertainment content.
