After months of testing, the television manufacturer and gadgets American Vizio announced that support for frameworkAirPlay 2 and API HomeKit being released through an update of firmware for SmartCast 3.0 TVs.
AirPlay 2 support allows compatible TV owners to stream video, music, podcasts, photos, and more directly from their iPhone, iPad, or Mac to the big screen without the need for an Apple TV. With HomeKit, users can turn the device on / off and easily control volume from Siri or the Home app (Home).
Such actions can also be automated by HomeKit. So you can add a setting where by saying ?Good night?, all smart devices paired with the Home app are turned off, including Smart TVs compatible with the feature.
In the case of Vizio, the TVs compatible with AirPlay 2 and HomeKit are as follows:
P-Series Quantum X (2019);
P-Series Quantum (2019 and 2018);
P-Series (2018, 2017 and 2016);
M-Series Quantum (2019);
M-Series (2018, 2017 and 2016);
E-Series (2018, 2017 and 2016 UHD models);
In addition to Vizio, LG It has also recently begun releasing Apple feature support for its TVs this year, as we reported last week.
