VIZIO SmartCast Mobile™ app reviews

  • Hate it ): 1/5

    By jaylyn.12345
    I have a lot of issues using it without a remote it’s just not possible. Wish it was wanted and used to love this app a little more but now it doesn’t work at all.
  • VIZIO your days are numbered 1/5

    By deja vu 9
    Why release an app that don’t even work, let alone keep it that way??? Seriously, you just lost a customer. Way to go losers 👎👎👎👎👎👎
  • The app is so nice but there’s a few problems 3/5

    By Khalidahusain
    The app is great and works really well especially if you have your TV connected over ethernet but the app would be so much better if there was a volume slider, something with high resistance. Also, the major feature that this app lacks is a widget. i really wish i could control my tv from a home screen panel it would be amazing and could be incredibly customizable to allow for a full home screen with modular widgets representing whatever button of choice. These two features are really necessary and i hope they are added soon. Thanks!
  • SP 70 D5 speaker 1/5

    By manparish
    Most stupid Tec I have ever used. This piece of crap never wake.. never able to use SmartCast ever with GB internet stupid crap never connected I decided to use as a Bluetooth speaker every single time you wanna use the speaker you literally go to the speaker and the volume to wake up with ECO power option off... (syncing with the sound bar and could not connect to sound bar) one of the famous themes for this speakers.. one of these days I will trash this craps..
  • Since the update the app is not working 3/5

    By Double__six
    The app is not turning off my tv
  • Update not working 1/5

    By Shayla.M
    The updated version of this app is not working properly. It won’t let me select anything and all it does is go up and down. Would give it zero stars. I’m definitely deleting it and finding a different app to use.
  • gets the job done..... ig 3/5

    By sharshar671
    lost count if how many times i've have to reset, pair, and troubleshoot the connectivity issues between my phone and the tv. the only app that works normally is youtube, otherwise every app either fails to launch or the buttons don't work at all. every other device in my house of different brands operate just fine with no problems. the vizio is the only device we own that has this problem. it can get the job done sometimes for streaming, though.
  • Barely Works 1/5

    By ZhaunaM
    This remote app started out working fine and worked on most apps. But now, it only works on Netflix. It doesn’t even work on the Vizio Homescreen. Idk what happened, but please fix.
  • junk 1/5

    By Saliyah08
    it was working at first & now it won’t even let me select any apps .. don’t download
  • Used to Work 3/5

    By Bjk79
    I don’t know what you did with the latest update, but it’s broke!
  • Bluetooth pop up horror 1/5

    By nes1984
    The Bluetooth pop up will not go away. My TV does not even have Bluetooth nor do I use Bluetooth but I can’t use the app with out enabling it? Please fix this!
  • You’d think this is cyberpunk with these bugs 1/5

    By R4DS0N
    Edit. Changed my review to 1 star. Why do I have to have Bluetooth on? I’m leaving the three star review for context, but while in the bluetooth enable loop, there is a brief window when the button disappears to when it reappears, and in that time frame I am able to hit a single button on the app’s remote. It will power my television on with my Bluetooth DISABLED. Clearly it’s operating via WiFi, so why do I HAVE to have it on? I mean, I’m not a programmer. I’m not going to say anything stupid like ‘I could do better’ or ‘It would be so easy!’ but I really would believe that bugs that stop us from using the app would be fixed. The always fun ‘enable Bluetooth loop’, or the false positive connection where it says it’s connected and nothing will respond, or the latest bug I’ve noticed this patch where you select the tv you want to utilize and it will get a check mark but no remote populates. Bravo! That said, it’s a free app, I can’t remember if I’ve EVER gotten an ad, and it’s gotten me through several periods of time without a remote due to dogs. Can you put up with some HORRIBLE, AGGRAVATING, and CONFOUNDING bugs for an app that functions solidly most of the time, is COMPLETELY free, and generally has sensible button placement? I mean, for me it’s a yes. I still wish the bugs were fixed, though. I really do. One last thing as another complaint, any way we can move that in-app settings menu for the tv into a better spot? It’s the only button that doesn’t make sense to find, and it’s SO useful.
  • Fix. 3/5

    By Skittle🌈
    There’s an error with the remote option. When i press the power button, my tv won’t turn on. Luckily i have a remote that works but the lazy in me just wants to control it from my phone. please fix this.
  • Doesn’t work 1/5

    By atreyumad
    It stopped working after a week it only works with YouTube
  • Some controls don’t work 1/5

    By Hash44
    The app Oops good and all functions work well. Problem, you can’t change Channels!
  • Power Off 1/5

    By Shreddy Kruger PhD
    The app will not let you power off your TV. What’s the point of having an app if I still have to use my remote? GARBAGE. JUST USE YOUR REMOTE.
  • Going downhill 1/5

    By gdw29
    The app never seems to want to connect to any of my TVs, it’ll keep loading and loading, it gives up after awhile. The same thing happens with my crave speaker, it doesn’t seem to load any settings but only the power button on the app works, I can’t adjust the EQ setting. When the app first came out it was fine but now it just seems to be a waste of space on my devices.
  • Remote 2/5

    By Shan Shan79
    It was working good for both of my Vizio Tvs but then it stopped working all together. I couldn’t do any functions that were on the remote, ie the power button, etc. All I could do was the switch between the two televisions . I started out with at least 4 stars and was generous about 2 stars. Fix the bugs and I would gladly reinstall the app.
  • Please get AT&T app 5/5

    By Phix1337
    Works well, please get at&t app for over the top tv streaming.
  • What Happen? 1/5

    By Albert Cuadrado
    What happen? with the update I can no longer connect the tv to the network. I try to configure it with a new tv and in the step of going to connect to the vizio network this never shows up. What did you do? before it was easier to connect.
  • Garbage app 1/5

    By mack 3
    This app rarely works. Every time I try to use it, I can never use it to scroll down the screen. It only goes right. In fact, every button I press makes me go right..
  • Bad 1/5

    By zashots
    I lost the remote and I moved there is no way for me to connect my phone to the tv unless I have the remote because you have to have them on the same WiFi all that I wish is that you can connect with just Bluetooth not WiFi because now I can’t screen mirror anything to the tv because I don’t have the original remote
  • Daily deleting and reloading app from phone 1/5

    By Jedi Master, Yoda
    Why has it come to this? It was already sketchy enough with connectivity. Sometimes it connects to the TV, sometimes it doesn’t. Then, at some point it just stopped. It shows my TV, but I can’t do anything because selecting my TV no longer shows any prompts or remote control settings. Now to get it to work, I have to delete it and go back to the App Store to reload back to my phone DAILY. The developer made an ‘update’ 3 weeks ago and roughly 3 weeks ago was when it went from bad to worse. I’m looking for another app. This is terrible. It was once reliable but also, for a short time.
  • Bluetooth 4/5

    By Janessa Hill
    The only two things I dislike about this is that when bluetooth is disabled a message keeps popping up which it forces you to go to settings to turn it on. Sometimes it is slow to respond and doesn’t work. Like let’s say I wanna go to Netflix so I click “Apps” then go to Netflix but sometimes it says “Unable to launch” which bothers me. Over all it is really great and free! :)
  • the worst app 1/5

    By Jules of the Forest
    The thing about this app that makes it so terrible is that it typically doesn’t even work. I’ve been able to pair my TV with the app in the past, but every other time you use the app it will not be able to view the settings for the paired TV. The only way to fix this problem is to uninstall the app and then re pair your TV to your phone. This worked for me on 5 separate occasions, but recently I haven’t been able to pair my TV to the app. The app when you try to pair uses Bluetooth but typically doesn’t work at all. I can’t tell you why. Then it automatically switches to turning your TV into a wifi hotspot that you should be able to pair your phone with. The problem with this is even though your phone says it’s made your TV into a wifi hotspot, it actually hasn’t because, you guessed it, your phone isn’t paired to your TV. What’s the thought process here? Make a terrible app so that no one buys your TVs again? It’s not like I can change the TV settings with the remote that came with the TV. I literally have to use this horrible, unusable app in order to change contrast, or even adjust brightness. If the intention was to make me throw out my TV and never by a Vizio again then congratulations, you did it. This is singlehanded THE WORST app I’ve ever HAD to use.
  • Was amazing until recently 2/5

    By bballjoseph33
    This app worked great I loved having it for when the kids lost the remote, I didn’t have any issues UNTIL about 2 weeks ago it’ll turn the tv on and that’s about it won’t allow me to do anything else and it’s super frustrating since I can’t find the original remote 😡
  • Update broke the app 1/5

    By DadBrhno
    The 1.8.1 version worked. Once this new version came out I can’t connect to it at all, and has broken what once worked!
  • Worst app ever 1/5

    By SooooAnnoyed!
    So annoying and never functions right.
  • horrible 2/5

    By george.costanza
    App is extremely buggy/unreliable. The remote control often freezes or becomes completely unresponsive. The only fix that seems to work is uninstalling and reinstalling the app, then pairing it with my TV all over again. This happens multiple times each day — to the point where the app has become virtually unusable. Also, the content in SmartCast frequently fails to load. Only the navigation menu at the top is visible but none of the actual apps (e.g., NetFlix, Amazon Prime, etc.) appear — just a black screen. I’ve contacted Vizio’s customer support about this issue numerous times. The only solution they’ve come up with is to essentially reboot the system (using a function called “soft power cycle”), which takes several minutes. Unfortunately our Vizio TV only came with a tablet (rather than a conventional remote control) which no longer works. And the TV itself has no menu or other function buttons. As such, SmartCast is our only way of navigating and it doesn’t work most of the time. Highly disappointing. Please fix!!

    By SpaceLordMaster
    Like others have mentioned, doesn’t work. Refuses to connect to to TV on same wireless network. Junk.
  • This app blows 1/5

    By WugTamer
    This app never works. I have to reinstall everything at least once a week. Never connects. My TV never came with a remote and only instructions for this app.
  • Crap 2/5

    By Robbyrob1225
    Seems great and streamlined - but actually using the app is pointless, opened up Amazon prime video and doesn’t work to swipe or use the digital remote to select or play anything. Ended up using the physical remote.
  • The update killed this app 1/5

    By Bugweiser74
    It did work great, now the update is super laggy
  • Good for turning off tv, not much else. 2/5

    By 503movies
    The functionality doesn’t seem to sync with the touch screen. Pushing “buttons” on the touch screen works only about 30-40%. That might be fine if you just had to keep trying but here it means only a few of the commands are recognized. Off works reliably.
  • Volume 1/5

    By lexton777
    Doesn’t control sound bar volume
  • Simply Pathetic App 1/5

    By Dheeraj Mitra
    The Crave 360 connects to the app via WiFi once and never again. The app does not even accept its own recommended name “Living Room” for the speaker. None of the music apps would launch or play within the SmartCast app.
  • This App is Worst than before 1/5

    By atrillionmade
    Please fix this app asap. I have 3 2020 vizio TV’s 1 70 inch, and 2 55 inch and the app literally does not work at all. I cant use any of the controls, cant navigate the TV’s GUI so basically the app is useless. Please update this app so that users can have a better experience with Vizio products that uses smartcast.
  • App does nothing to connect to my tv 1/5

    By warrior8029
    Bought this 40” tv and seller told me it was a smart tv. Get it home and apparently it’s not smart unless I install and use the app on my phone. Push the setup button and my phone sees it, I press to connect and it says to input a 4 digit code that should appear on my screen....nothing happens. The screen just stays in pairing mode and never produces a code to connect. The only way I’ve been able to use this tv is to run all my apps and everything through my Xbox. The app is worthless and if not for my Xbox I would have returned the tv but regardless, never again will I buy Vizio. Nothing smart about their app or tv’s.
  • Doesn’t work 1/5

    By karen(jk)
    Don’t waste your time the app doesn’t even work and won’t let you sign in. It’s literal garbage
  • Sorry i bought a vizio tv 1/5

    By peter2965
    Return it because the service is zero, I bought by costco but when you are put on hold for 30+minutes, you can’t hear a word she is saying.
  • Unable to connect 1/5

    By toach
    The app sees my tv but is unable to connect so I can’t use the app.
  • I’ve had to uninstall and reinstall twice. 2/5

    By Lost_Symphonies
    This is ridiculous. When it works, it’s great. But as I said in the title, I’ve now had to uninstall this twice, because it refuses to connect after a while. As soon as I reinstall it and tell it to pair with my soundbar again, it connects right away. Which only further proves that this app is broken. If Apple made a soundbar, you know darn well it would work seamlessly with its companion app. I wish other companies would take notes from Apple and try to make the best products they could. Even Apple’s cheapest products are vastly better than a lot of mid-range products from other companies. I don’t know how companies are content with putting out garbage.
  • Bad 😡😡😡😡😡😡👎🏻 1/5

    It is bad and stupid no offense but I do not like when you have to buy premium because NOT ALL OF US ARE RICH and it is annoying because you can only use it twice or once and you have to buy premium😡😡 WHY CANT THERE EVER BE A APP WITHOUT PREMIUM SO TRASH!!😡😡😡😡🤬🤬😑😬

  • Why update 1/5

    By spoiledwy
    since this stupid update the remote doesn’t work properly. only volume buttons work
  • Remote won’t work to tv 1/5

    By Titaniaq1
    I’ve downloaded so many apps and this one is just like those. Don’t work.
  • Garbage, always asks for Bluetooth! 1/5

    By Shopgirl 205
    Constantly asks for Bluetooth and location services to be enabled. Don’t waste your time unless you lost your remote and are desperate for Vizio to light up in your face.
  • Believe the reviews. This app is useless. 1/5

    By The_Fancy
    I’ve had my Vizio SmartCast for years and have never been able to use the app consistently. Now, after this last update, I can’t connect my TV to the app at all. I’ve tried multiple workarounds and troubleshooting tips. Nothing. Which means I can’t adjust any settings at all, on a TV I payed quite a lot of money for. Quit over-engineering your products, Vizio. Just let us use a normal TV remote and quit trying to design software. This is pathetic.
  • Somewhat great 4/5

    By A_Queenbe
    I mean it works but it is just slow but that is it for me I really like it
