Yesterday we mentioned that Samsung was going to be adding Airplay 2 to their 2018 and 2019 model TV’s, and today Vizio has announced that it will be adding Homekit support and Airplay 2 support via a free update of SmartCast 3.0.
Whilst this will not add the same iTunes media app like Samsung it will allow users to stream TV and Movies via AirPlay 2 from their iOS and Mac devices. HomeKit integration will allow add Vizio to the Homekit app, and control the volume and play media via Siri or your iOS device.
The announcement comes at this weeks CES 2019. Adding AirPlay 2 can only help Apple as it is preparing to announce their own Media content to rival Netflix and Amazon TV.
