Include remotes 1/5
App remote works horribly. Please don’t make a TV without a real remote in the box.
Smartcast no ways to control the app 1/5
I am using netflix and YouTube app on tv. When you video is playing there is no control for pause, fast forward. Their remote is horrible with limited buttons. Tablet remote keeps stops working with tv. I understand having less buttons on physical remote but what is the reason behind not having this playback buttons on app. Simply poor remote and app. Called Visio support for the full remote sent me some link to buy remote from thirdparty seller.
Worst TV’s Ever!!! 1/5
I have a couple of these TV’s just to find out that there garbage. The malfunction and won’t turn on then restart themselves by themselves. Customer service is worst than the TV’s. Stay away from Vizio....
E65-uD3 audio settings issue 3/5
I have s Vizio e65-ud3 display and for the past 3-4 months I’ve been having trouble getting the audio options in this app to work again. They seem to have default, blank settings instead of what usually was there. My other Vizio TVs work great with this app, just having this particular issue, and it started after one of these app updates. I hope Vizio can fix this.
Doesnt work 2/5
Really just does not work. I have the tv connected to the same wifi and everything. I have an iphone 8 plus so its really up to date. It just does not want to connect and it says to connect the tv to a wifi network. Its already connected.....
Worst smart tv ever 1/5
By hate this tv
Useless remote, bad app
Your app is a joke 1/5
It never works properly and a horrible app just put more app on tv’s because this app is the worst app in history would not recommend anyone use this app. This is the Worst app I’ve ever used in my life. Do not download app!!!!!
All in one 5/5
I don’t know what I would do without this app. I don’t even know my controllers anymore!
Can’t login on the app 1/5
For some reason after the app update it logged me out and when I try to login it keeps saying no internet connection which is not true please fix it thanks
Doesn’t connect at all 1/5
Honestly I’ve tried this app twice with two different devices and it refuses to connect. I wanted to avoid dropping the $50 or $60 on an adapter but I guess that’s what I get for wanting technology to function
Vizio should simply include a real remote!
This app suckz!!!
Does not connect to TV a lot of the times 1/5
Does not connect to the TV a lot of the times. Needs a lot of improvement.
Someone needs to fix this app 1/5
This is probably the worst app on my phone! There is always connectivity issues where we have to disconnect the WiFi and turn the TV off and on for it to work. We don’t have this issue with our Roku or fire stick ever! Do not get a Vizio smart TV. Because dealing with this app is horrible. We’re going to sell it soon and get a better TV with a better application.
By Sam Roundtree
It blows my mind that a company could have this many engineers not do a simple QA and realize that nothing works. SmartCast is absolute garbage.
Great when it works, mysterious when it doesn't 2/5
My review is pretty straight forward. Using the app in lieu of a lost remote. The remote expierence is slow and clunky. When it doesn't work there's almost no feedback. I'm a developer and I know the limitations of Bluetooth.... This could be better.
Pathetic to rely on an app for your tv that doesn’t work half the time.
Isn’t connecting 2/5
By Tae dshun
I tried numerous times to connect my devices and it still hasn’t worked
Connection Failure 1/5
Just purchased the Visio sound bar, wasted hours trying to connect using this app, very dissatisfied with this
Kicks Me Out 1/5
Anytime I try & watch a show it will play for a little bit then it kicks me out. It was working perfectly fine, then all of a sudden it started acting up! It’s not cool bc now I cannot enjoy ANYTHING.
Loses the device connection 2/5
The app always loses the device and have to pair it over and over again. It’s a pain
In 5 years have purchased 5 Vizio TV’s. It’s my favorite brand. Since the last App update my phone is not able to “sign in”. At long in I type the email and before I can put my password in it takes me to the Home screen or the remote telling me there is no internet connection. The internet is connect and working fine on all my devices excluding this App. Please fix soon! Overall, I like the app.
Needs to update 3/5
Updated months ago and since the update it won’t let my movies anywhere app connect everything else that it allows to cast shows up just fine.
Works just like the physical remote 5/5
FYI this only works on Vizio TVs with SmartCast because it needs to pair on WiFi. It is the best app I think I’ve downloaded! I don’t have to search for the channel changer anymore and my SO doesn’t get to be a remote hog! I can turnt he tv on and off, navigate between inputs, and scroll through the apps same as the physician remote. I also like that I can use the keyboard to search instead of tediously tapping through letters with the physical remote. 👍👍
Does not connect to tv most of the time 1/5
Horrible app. App connects to tv about 10% of the time.
It’s just alright 4/5
When I first got my VIZIO TV back in 2016 I was furious that I didn’t get a real remote control. Yeah syncing the app to the TV is a pain, but It works fine afterwards on my own network. Using the app just takes time getting used to.
Do they care? 1/5
By Wow after all this time
Horrible! Trash! Really peeps? Please make it easier!
Can’t cast what we would like 1/5
By Whitewater paddler 85
I would like to cast my Nest cameras from app on phone, but smart cast only allows you to cast things already on the Visio t v. Doesn’t make sense.
No matter what I did I could never get the app to pair with my TV to cast. the Bluetooth wouldn’t work, the WiFi didn’t work. It wouldn’t even let me sign in to my TV provider. This app is a complete waste of time.
This app is horrible 1/5
This app is always crashing!!
Not all Tv’s are compatible 1/5
Hate to say it but I really don’t like vizio. I had problems with what my tv could do and I was not satisfied so I contacted them and they told me to get this app. Then a week later the same person lets me know that my tv isn’t compatible. Not all Vizio’s are compatible with this app.
Pointless app 1/5
Just bought this tv last week, so everything is updated. I know my WiFi password and my iPhone is only 4 months old. Must be the app - the tv says it is paired, but I can’t use the app and then it sends you in circles trying to re-pair. Had enough. I will keep this in mind before my next tv purchase.
Battery Drain 1/5
I bought my first SmartCast TV mid-December and while I’m enjoying the TV, I used the app for less than 10 minutes. The responsiveness of the app was poor compared to just using the remote. I did not close the app in my tasks but left it in the background, and after grabbing my iPhone 7, it felt warm and I noticed a significant battery drain. I quit the app and immediately deleted it.
I’m totally willing to give the app another go if the UX is focused on and power management issues are addressed.
Great app 4/5
I love the display
Rip app remote 1/5
The app was working, update, app no longer recognizes my tv... what a surprise. It’s barely been a year and guess it’s vizio for “buy new tv”.
By shamrock 99
I bought a Vizio about a year ago had to go six months without a TV so I could save for it. I got a 70 inch, and the money I spent on it I would’ve figured I would’ve gotten a remote. This app is terrible and system is terrible. For a while now, my speakers would work intermittently and now they completely don’t work and when I get on the app it refuses to let me turn them on. I hope someone from the company can read this and give me a solution.
Widget stopped working! 3/5
The widget keeps insisting I choose a device. Open the main app my tv is already chosen and can be controlled in the app but swipe screen to widget still want me to choose a device. Makes no sense!
It’s a great app!! 4/5
App is great, some improvements are needed.
This app is unbelievably trash
Don’t Waste Your Time 1/5
I’m sick and tired of installing/reinstalling, pair/unpair only to have the prompt read “incorrect password” when I’ve typed it in correctly 100 times. Oh, and if the app and TV pair successfully and connect to your WiFi network, don’t get comfortable, it WILL have “unexpected errors” 90% of the time. Vizio, your app and tv’s don’t work properly.
Doesn't work all of a sudden 1/5
Ive had this tv for 2 years, never a problem. Last few nights i can't open the app, plays a continuous video. It's frustrating af. Now what?
App works fine TV app is terrible 1/5
The iPhone app works fine. The TV app is terrible and requires me to factory reset my tv every month due to glitches.
The worst 1/5
The app won’t allow me to sign in or create an new account as to last week it was working just fine. We’re connected to WiFi an it’s still not working uuuggghhhh
App does not work since latest update. Wss useful before this update, but now cannot use.
Doesn't work 1/5
By Disgruntled User 39
It doesn't work.
Worst ‘navigation’ app 1/5
Same as a lot of users - bought a 4k monitor - great pic but I use a fire stick and the direct streaming apps to cast - their own is amateur hour and more frustration than its worth - real shame
App is awful 1/5
By vizio is awfuk
App recently updated and now I can not access any functions without creating an account and logging in. Why?!?!? I did not agree to this when I bought the TV. I just want the functionality to control my TV. I don’t want to create an account so Vizio can track my usage and sell my data. This is an invasion of privacy and a clear violation of any commitments made when I purchased the TV. I will never by another Vizio TV.
Horrible app 1/5
Had this tv for years and have hated the cast app the whole time. The recent update won’t let me log on to do anything. Should not need a smart phone to set a sleep timer. BTW the vizio tv’s are great, just get one with a full feature remote.
Causes soundbar to power off, very buggy 1/5
I bought an SB3651-E6 soundbar hoping to use the smart cast features since it’s so heavily advertised. Turns out this app may be able to connect to it once but is completely unusable after that. It takes minutes to login every time (since there’s no option to save your login info), loses connection and cannot find the soundbar every time I have to sign in again forcing me to go through the set up process all over again, including registering my device to my name each time.
Worst app ever.... all of us with a Vizio are screwed! 1/5
How are we suppose to SmartCast if you app is constantly not working properly. App decides to kick you off as it pleases and then won’t allow you to sign back in giving “error” messages. Come on Vizio peeps get this right, many of us have spent hundreds on your TV - fix your app!!!!
